This play invites the audience to run through the hallways, backways, stairways and sneakyways on a unique, immersive adventure. 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea is a thrilling, top-secret mission to infiltrate an enemy submarine and capture a deadly foe. It’s a performance your audience will never forget because you’re all knee-deep in the action! The final twist is an ending you’d never expect and a difficult choice that only the audience can make.
