Guppy Getaway is a fantasy about life under the sea, with the actors portraying various sea creatures. A school of guppies loses their teacher; Miss Flounder and must make it back home past some hungry sea creatures. Lots of humour with a strong environmental message.

A sample from the play

Father-(Entering with son) Well, my boy…There it is. Lake Ontario. The History books…They say Ontario means sparkling water…H20, Aqua Vita. Now your mom says that fishing in Lake Ontario is like fishing in a sewer. You know what I say son?

Son- What Dad?

Father- I say your mom is a worry wart. Smell that air son. Are you smelling it?

Son- I’m smelling it dad.

Father- Nothing like it.

Son- Can I catch a shark dad?

Father- Well, son, no. Sharks don’t go for worms.

Son- What do they go for dad? Huh? What do they go for?

Father- Actually son…They might go for you. or maybe your little sister.

Son- Can I go get her.

Father- No. son, I don’t think that would be such a good idea. Your mom, she would get pretty riled up, and you know how your mom can be. Love her to death. She’s a good woman and all, but she sure can get riled up.

Guppy Getaway opens with a man and his son fishing on the shores of Lake Ontario before the play shows us what life is like under the sea. There is a school of guppies who lose their teacher and must fend for themselves against an Octopus, a shark and an electric eel. There is a bad stand up comic called Shelby the Shellfish, a singer called Miss Star Fish, a sea cucumber, a lonely sea turtle, a trio of mean-girl mermaids and other creatures of the deep. A fun show for kids because it allows them to explore their imaginations. It provides a teaching moment about the ocean with no clumsy attempt at sending a message. Kids get to explore both comic timing and tender moments. Bottle Tree Productions believes drama is a great way of pushing and stretching kids' imaginations, of making kids use their brains, of making them smarter and more confident.
