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 energy efficiency 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 resources and energy conservation:

Scene 1:
Wanting to purchase the same box of energy-wasting lightbulbs at a garage sale, supervillains Dragonfly and Firefly compete for it by seeing who knows more about energy.

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:
With the lights at GameCo fading, game designer Hieronyma Tru enlists technology specialist and friend, Crash Reboot, to refresh her memory about how energy is wasted.

Scene 4:
Villain Dr. Maybe and superhero Nikki Neutron are challenged by the Great Pickle to prove who knows more about how to conserve energy.

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.
