We are excited to offer this brand new fun take on the Mad Scientist show! The show opens with a busy science lab full of experiments. Using a chalkboard as a prop, we solve the chemical equation and think we've found the solution resulting in the joy of discovery! Mvt 2 is about the beauty, wonder, and awesome power of science. We use our science skills to move from the chalkboard to actually mixing things in beakers and stabilize a compound. But then… Mvt 3 the experiment goes wrong and the compound destabilizes until our Mad scientist actually solves the problem which takes the show into a celebration to wrap up the entire production! This show features our arrangements of Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D Minor (public domain) and Weird Science by Oingo Boingo (copyright required).

There are a ton of visual and general effect options to set the stage with rolling lab tables, many beakers, test tubes and swirly glassware filled with different color liquids. There can be backdrops with science images with chalkboard writing of science type things.

This show was originally designed by Darren Loney and adapted to indoor pecussion by John Mapes & Trent Gronewold. It was originally commissioned for Gahr HS in the fall of 2022 and was released for the 2024.
