Join us for “The Great Aquarium Treasure Hunt” at 8:00 p.m. on February 20

Tag along on "The Great Aquarium Treasure Hunt" for a once-in-a-lifetime adventure.  Premiering on February 20, 2013 at 8:00 p.m. on Maryland Public Television, this live-action, action-packed family program follows kids from the fictional South Town Middle School on their class field trip through the National Aquarium at Baltimore, home to an exotic array of marine life.

The kids are guided throughout the undersea world right in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. They explore the unique marine life of the Chesapeake Bay; take a trip “down under” to visit the crocodiles of Australia; say hello (or, more likely "ribbit, ribbit")  to the frogs in an indoor rainforest; and dive into the Atlantic and Pacific oceans to become acquainted with deep sea creatures, from sharks to rays to dolphins.

In addition to airing on MPT, the show will also be screened at the Herman & Walter Samuelson Children's Hospital at Sinai Hospital, through its internal cable systems in patient rooms and waiting rooms. Kids receiving care at the children's hospital at Sinai are already enjoying the life under the sea, since LifeBridge Health has partnered with the Aquarium to broadcast a live feed in every patient room.

As if this wasn't cool enough, the cast also includes some young Marylanders:

  • Caitlin Fernandez from Howard County as Dewey Fernandez
  • Elias Ramos from Baltimore City, a student at Baltimore School for the Arts, as Trevor Davis
  • Andrea Unger from Baltimore County, a student at George Washington Carver Center for Arts and Technology in Towson, as Sloane Meyers

Their teacher, Mr. Hedgeman, is played by Baltimore’s Bob Heck. Rounding out the cast are five real-life guides who work at The National Aquarium in Baltimore.

Major funding for "The Great Aquarium Treasure Hunt" is provided by LifeBridge Health, one of the largest, most comprehensive providers of health services in northwest Baltimore. After the show's debut on the 20th, it will be available for streaming on the main MPT website.
