"Aliens Alive!" A STEAM Space Adventure

Program description

While reporting live, The Story Ship’s science reporter, Sarah, is kidnapped by aliens and trapped on a space ship bound for the outer regions of our solar system!  Audience volunteers must quickly form a Rescue Team and use magic, dance  and music to get her back.  The audience helps to unravel a celestial musical message. Each Alien communication gives us clues as to the Alien’s location and how to rescue Sarah. This show is highly interactive with audience participation every minute to two minutes with kids helping with magic tricks, singing, dancing, and navigating the rescue rocket through an interactive game.

Onstage, giant video animations and holographic images allow us to communicate and track Sarah’s amazing journey through our solar system.  In school shows, audience members explore the relationship between music, math and space travel.

Sarah is returned to earth safely. The show ends in a celebration as the aliens, audience and actors all dance to the melody the aliens sent us.

This fast-paced high energy show combines:

Interactive 3D Holograms

Animation projected on a large screen

Music played on a Theremini

Gaming

Comedy Theater
