The Science Museum Launches UK Tour of THE ENERGY SHOW, Now thru August 3

Produced exclusively by Science Museum Live, The Energy Show tour will travel to over 30 venues including Royal & Derngate Theatre in Northampton, the Norwich Theatre Royal, the St David's Hall in Cardiff, the York Theatre Royal and the Hall for Cornwall in Truro as part of its UK tour.

The tour is running now, and The Science Museum will be the last stop on the tour, with performances 22 July - 3 August 2014.

Audiences will again have the opportunity to join futuristic science students Annabella and Phil as they race against time to prove their knowledge of energy through a series of live experiments. Featuring a virtual assistant named i-nstein and a steampunk workshop full of gadgets and chemicals, Annabella and Phil use liquid nitrogen, hydrogen rockets and electricity to create a dangerously exciting experience.

The Energy Show is a unique theatrical experience whose award-winning creative talent will build on the success of its original run to deliver a distinctive and universally appealing performance.

Directed and co-written by Martin Lamb, who has worked with English National Opera and the V&A, The Energy Show boasts a creative team who have collectively worked nationally and internationally on more than 500 shows, including productions on the West End and Broadway. Their awards include a Tony Award, a Village Voice OBIE and a Theatregoers' Choice Award.

Anthony Richards, Manager of Learning Programmes at the Science Museum, says "We are delighted to announce the return of The Energy Show. Audiences in 2013 agreed that its mixture of eye-popping demonstrations and imaginative characters both excited and educated young viewers. The Science Museum is pleased to be able to expand its reach to new audiences."

Martin Lamb, Director, says "The Energy Show is a dynamic and fresh way for young people to engage with science, weaving together the best elements of a traditional live science show with the storytelling features of family theatre. Audiences will enjoy an engaging experience, no matter their background in science."

The Energy Show is suitable for all ages from 7+ years and is a must-see for Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 3 students. The trailer is available on the Science Museum's You Tube channel.

Experiments and demonstrations include flaming methane bubbles, flowers frozen solid by liquid nitrogen, lights powered by Plasma Balls, a hair-raising Van de Graaff generator, and soaring hydrogen-filled rockets
