We can’t wait for you to join us “Under the Sea”! 

This show will be unlike any other at MATES! While it is a virtual show, it was filmed using Hollywood movie production techniques, with students being filmed individually in front of a green screen and composited together.

There are 2 different casts for the show. Please see the cast lists below to determine which show to purchase a ticket for. 

Please invite friends and family to enjoy the show! There are plenty of tickets per show, so please feel free to invite others.

Stream details:
The show is available to stream through ShowTix4U. You can watch it on their website, stream it through their app on Apple TV, or cast it from your computer to your TV. View complete details on how to stream the show to your Smart TV.

You can only use one stream link per device. If you are streaming the show on multiple devices, you will need to purchase 1 ticket per device, even in the same household.
