“Clyde & Seamore’s Sea Lion High” Debuts at SeaWorld Orlando
The all-new sea lion comedy adventure “Clyde & Seamore’s Sea Lion High” is now open at SeaWorld Orlando.
A special new pre-show salutes teachers from all over, and guests learn new information about the animal stars, their relationships with the trainers, and how the animals are trained.
True to the more than 40-year legacy of SeaWorld’s beloved sea lion shows, Sea Lion High is an entertaining and fun comedy that is a perfect fit for sea lions’ large personalities. Through the adventures, laughs and endearing animal antics, guests are inspired to care about these amazing animals.
When Clyde and Seamore are nominated to win scholarships to Ocean University, they must enter crash courses in science, dance and gym in a storyline that is full of fast-paced fun. Also woven into the comedy are moments that subtly teach lessons such as the importance of keeping our oceans healthy.
Sea Lion High features a new, two-story set that is the marine mammal high school, complete with sea lion-sized waterslides and elevators for otters. SeaWorld’s animal stars and trainers have also worked together to put together amazing new behaviors.
“We love creating a show like ‘Clyde & Seamore’s Sea Lion High’,” said Kelly Flaherty Clark, curator of animal training. “Finding entertaining ways to encourage guests to care about these animals is what we do, and this show does it in a way that makes you smile and laugh.”
The creative process to produce a show like “Clyde & Seamore’s Sea Lion High” is highly collaborative between animal trainers and the group of writers and directors. In fact, the process always starts with the animals. We watch interactions and relationship sessions with them and their trainers, looking for unique ways to highlight their natural abilities.
“The show takes our guests on a journey where they’ll learn about celebrating, connecting and caring for the natural world,” said Michael Fletcher, SeaWorld Orlando’s vice president of entertainment. “But this is a Clyde and Seamore production, and that means it’ll be hilarious and zany.”
