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 safety and emergency preparedness 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 conservation and natural gas safety:

Scene 1:
Lorraine Quiche, owner of Fluffy’s Spaghetti, has to contend with a snooty food critic by the name of Eggs Benedict Arnold as she learns about where natural gas comes from.

Scene 2:
While visiting Granny Greyflame to retrieve her superhero utility belt, The Blue Flame learns about how to conserve natural gas.

Scene 3:
While taping content for her YouTube channel, the Wicked Witch of the Upper Northwest is continually interrupted by TinkerFred, her friendly, safety-minded appliance technician.

Scene 4:
The imposing Queen Bee has called upon her favorite worker bee, Bjorn Drone, to help reconstruct the recently destroyed hive and learn about why it’s important to have a family communication plan.

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.
