Tom, our orphaned teenage hero, is framed for a crime he didn’t commit. In a desperate attempt to escape capture he is trapped on the edge of a waterfall. His only choice is to jump. Awakening in the depths of the ocean he encounters a whole new world of danger and adventure. Desperate to get back to the girl he loves Tom must brave underwater challenges as he embarks on a quest to find a way back to land. This spellbinding new production uses some of the most sophisticated special effects ever seen on stage. Watch the beautiful duet Waiting For You sung by Lauren Samuels & Louise Dearman…
Two of the most exciting and celebrated West End music theatre stars join the cast of Water Babies: Louise Dearman (as Mrs D) and Lauren Samuels (as Ellie).
