The touring production comes to Surrey’s Bell Performing Arts Centre on Saturday (Sept. 26) for a pair of show times, at 1 and 4 p.m. Expect lots of singing, dancing, comedy and audience participation; the script has The Bubble Guppies “getting ready to rock n’ roll with some totally fin-tastic tunes, but when a special band member goes missing, the show can’t go on.” Visit
