This fast-paced musical adventure, presented in partnership with the Virginia Marine Science Museum, tells the tale of Chessie, a misguided manatee who found his way into the Chesapeake Bay. With the help of a friendly seagull, Chessie meets many new friends in the Bay. Using a combination of puppet styles including giant puppets, Rainbow Productions presents a creative, interactive look at the marine life off the coast of Virginia. The Chesapeake Bay Marine Lab, available from The Virginia Marine Science Museum, is an excellent experience to combine with a booking of this program.
