Show Overview


Debuting this year, our Livestream Special offers classrooms a convenient, online-accessible option for experiencing educational theatre.

This 35-minute show presents a virtual lesson in electrical safety for grades K-6. Through an interactive web platform, a live host will introduce entertaining sketches featuring a variety of characters in professionally filmed scenes from our live theatrical productions – and guide classrooms to participate in a discussion on energy and electricity:

Scene 1:
Superhero Nikki Neutron is trying to clear up a misunderstanding with her boss, U.R. Fired, as she teaches him about how electricity is made at a power plant using resources.

Scene 2:
GameCo designer Hieronyma Tru challenges Internet Troll to a game of Ping-Pong to test his knowledge about the uses of electricity.

Scene 3:
Circus owner Jackie Sullivan has to make sure her star attraction, Ernesto Zucchini, knows about electrical safety before he is shot out of a cannon.

Scene 4:
Electrical superhero Captain Wattage is suspicious of new recruit Vivica Voltage as she creates dangerous electrical situations around the office.

Students and teachers will also have access to a Q&A with the host, and an exclusive e-learning package that includes e-books and graphic novels, games, quizzes and lesson plans for the classroom that reinforce concepts from the show.
