Synopsis


Reginald the Blue Crab (Kevin Chick) and Sam the Plastic Water Bottle (Leslie Nevon Holden); Little Fish Theatre (Philadelphia, PA; photo by Charlotte Leigh).

A plastic water bottle named Sam has lost her parents in The Gyres, a swirling ocean landfill twice the size of Texas.  With help from a blue crab with a giant claw, a parrot who thinks she is a seagull, and The Oldest Sea Turtle That Ever Lived, Sam embarks on a family-friendly, music-filled, epic journey to save us all from the lonely, swirling vortex of thrown-away things and lost hope.
