Show Synopsis
This year, Energy Guardians offers classrooms a convenient, online-accessible option for experiencing educational theatre.

This 45-minute show presents a virtual lesson in energy efficiency for grades 6-8. A host will introduce entertaining improv sketches featuring a variety of characters in professionally filmed scenes from our live theatrical productions – and guide classrooms to participate in a discussion on resources and energy conservation:

Scene 1:
Buddy the Beagle Scout is lost in the desert when he meets an unlikely guide and teacher – Vinnie the Velociraptor – who may or may not have escaped from a dinosaur cloning lab. Vinnie teaches Buddy important information about renewable resources.

Scene 2:
Apathy Addams, drifting listlessly around her gloomy Gothic mansion, has a problem – her experiments in the dungeon … er … basement have gone wrong because she doesn’t quite understand how to measure energy use. Her mother gives her a quick lesson on kilowatts with the help of her assistant, Igor.

Scene 3:
There’s a new baby in the house, and he’s going to help a harried mom teach her older son about the ways he wastes energy – and the simple tools (like LED light bulbs) that help to save energy. Oddly enough, The Child seems to be able to levitate light bulbs, as if he hails from A Galaxy Far, Far Away.

Students and teachers will also have access to 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.
