Mad Cow Theatre Announces 7th Annual Science Play Festival
Mad Cow Theatre's original Science Play Festival returns using, guess what!?...Science! To bring their unique festival of science related plays to life, they will be live-streaming their events online.
"We are so excited to bring back our Science Play Festival, especially during a time where live entertainment is severely limited but extremely needed," says Executive Director, Mitzi Maxwell. "We hope everyone will join us this summer as we explore the intersection of drama and science with a host of actors and scientists."
From June 25th - 27th, patrons will be able to experience exclusive online events to get their science on. Events will include an Exclusive Virtual Drama Club led by Mad Cow artists and science professionals, a collection of play readings from Climate Change Theatre Action, and a Youth Science Play Lab Showcase.
