THAT PHYSICS SHOW and THAT CHEMISTRY SHOW Extend, THAT INVENTIONS SHOW Added to Repertory

The Science Theater Company, the newly formed theatre company that "uses the magic of theatre to make science fun," founded by Producer Eric Krebs, announced today that it has extended its Off-Broadway run of science shows through December 23at The Playroom Theater (151 West 46thStreet). In addition to That Physics Show and That Chemistry Show, that have been running in repertory, That Inventions Show will begin performances on September 15.

That Physics Show, which won the 2017 Drama Desk Award for "Unique Theatrical Experience," has run almost 500 performances and will celebrate its third birthday in November. It has also recently opened in Beijing, China in a Mandarin version. The show features physics wizard David Maiullo who based the show on the notion that "It's Not Magic, it's Physics!"

That Chemistry Show, now in its second year was created by Borislaw Bilash, long time chemistry professor and educator. Some 30 demonstrations, each with a name range from "Dragon's Breath and "Elephant Toothpaste" to "Exploding Cloud" and "Genie in a Bottle."

Beginning on September 15, That Inventions Showwill join the repertory, presented in association with "The Museum of Interesting Things" and its founder Denny Daniel. The show will trace the history of inventions from 1850 to the present and includes hands-on demonstrations of the first sound recordings, early projections and film, steam engines, telephones, ingenious toys and a multitude of other electric, electronic and mechanical inventions that have led to our current world.

Eric Krebs, producer of the Science Theater Company, comments, "When we started That Physics Show, I had no idea that this would develop into a long-running 'library' of interesting science shows. We are now working on developing That Math Showand That Astronomy Show, as well as a number of others.I had thought that I was creating an entertainment for smart nerds. Now we have a regular flow of grandparents, parents, kids, schools and camps, and it couldn't make me happier. With the emphasis on STEM education, I think we have found our special niche."
