BPAC Presents


scientific circus

Step right up for this amazing show, creatively performed by a multi-talented circus clown and a mime extraordinaire. The Super Scientific Circus starring Mr. Fish and Trent the Mime proves that science can be fun and funny. Alternately assisted and foiled by the comedic antics of Trent the Mime, Mr. Fish uses amazing circus skills that could involve everything from boomerangs, bubbles, beachballs, and magic to bullwhips to introduce the principles of friction, inertia, centripetal force, aerodynamics, sonic booms, air pressure, and ultraviolet light.

The audience learns how to make and throw their own boomerangs, how to blow giant soap bubbles, and how to put a needle through a balloon. Whether you flunked high school chemistry or have a PhD in astrophysics, you will love this show!

Super Scientific Circus has performed at Taipei National Theatre (Taiwan), Paper Mill Playhouse (New Jersey), University of Hawaii, Civic Arts Plaza (California), North Shore Music Theatre (Massachusetts), Hong Kong International Children’s Festival, Detroit Youth Theatre, The Florida Theatre, and other venues around the world.
