Science Museum Premieres New Show

For six weeks this summer, London's mighty Science Museum will be hosting the world premiere of The Energy Show, which it describes as 'explosive family theatre for curious minds' and which will include live experiments on stage  - bubbles set alight to create fireballs, liquid nitrogen exploding underwater and hydrogen rockets fired into the audience.  

Performed in the museum’s new theatre space, the show sees Annabella and Phil, two futuristic science students, race against time to prove their knowledge of energy, assisted by a virtual lab-assistant and a steampunk workshop.

The show runs 22 July-31 Aug 2013, Tues–Sun at 11.30 and 13.30, and is suitable for ages 7+.
