Sea World bringing education, action and environmental awareness through newest Shamu show, One Ocean
After five successful years Sea World’s across the country are ready to say good-bye to their highly popular Believe and usher in One Ocean. Bringing together their killer whales, trainers, lights, action and music, this educational and fun look at how we and our earth’s waters rely on each other is sure to be a delight, while allowing the whales to continue to spread their message of compassion and conservation.
Set to premiere at SeaWorld Orlando at the end of April, SeaWorld San Diego on Memorial Day weekend, and SeaWorld San Antonio in June, the shows feature spectacular whale behaviors including the high-energy leaps that make them remarkable to watch.
“This new show brings to life SeaWorld’s mission in the most powerful way yet,” said Jim Atchison, President and Chief Executive Officer of SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment through a press release. “This show is what guests love about our parks – thrilling entertainment that educates and inspires you to celebrate, connect and care for the world we share.”
Shamu Stadium will offer a three-story set, panoramic LED screens and hundreds of surround-sound speakers as part of the show. In one show segment the whales will play amid giant fountains.
At the heart of this new SeaWorld show is the educational message that “we are all part of one world and have the power to make a difference. The message of caring and respect for the world we share is woven throughout the show – encouraging guests to make a difference through their own everyday actions.”
“There is an unprecedented level of energy, excitement and passion in this show,” said SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment’s Curator of Animal Training, Julie Scardina. “It is the ultimate SeaWorld experience: world-class entertainment that educates and inspires action. Trainers, producers and educators are collaborating on new ways to connect with the audience and show how closely the human and animal worlds are connected.”
