The Thea Awards were created by the Themed Entertainment Association (TEA) to help realize a key mission of the association: bringing recognition to achievement, talent and personal excellence within the themed entertainment industry. TEA’s Thea Awards Nominating Committee recommends the slate of awards recipients each year after an extensive selection and evaluation process. The TEA International Board of Directors gives final approval to the slate of recipients. The Thea Awards Committee is a themed entertainment industry “who’s who” of professionals who have distinguished themselves and been celebrated for leadership, creativity and innovation.
“Fantastic Journey” premiered in Shanghai in spring of 2017 onboard Majestic Princess, which immediately caught the attention of the entire cruise industry given both the scale and technical complexity of this custom-designed show. The show features a tremendous cast of talented singers and dancers, supported by production stage staff. Show highlights include various layers of LED and projection mapped elements, along with LED programmable costumes, epic audio design, beautiful lighting and projection mapped imagery which interacted with the performers.
