imagination_machine_logoThe Imagination Machine is a children’s theater company which preforms skits based on stories written by our very own Ocean Air students. Students laugh and giggle as the actors using mime, dance, song and action, bring the stories to life.  The Imagination Machine is a fun-filled event that our students enjoy and look forward to year after year at Ocean Air School.
