Show Synopsis

The Clue that Burned Blue is performed by two professional actors who lead your students through an action-packed superhero adventure, all while teaching about energy conservation and natural gas safety.

In this 25-minute play, The Blue Flame has returned from vacation to a natural gas crisis throughout the city – but that’s not all … our hero will also have to meet face-to-face with the responsible culprit, Arch Enemy! With the help of your students, will The Blue Flame learn enough about resources to confront Arch Enemy’s wasteful ways?

In addition to the live, in-school performance, printed student playbooks, teacher guides, and digital games and activities are provided to expand upon the educational content of the program.
