Duluth Playhouse-Imaginarium Mad Science
Duluth Playhouse presented Imaginarium Mad Science, a free program being for ages 5-adult. A brother and sister and annoying cousin all want to be president of their super secret science club. They must go head to head, testing their science knowledge through interactive science experiments until the audience is convinced of the true winner. Patrons of all ages enjoyed this energetic and interactive play.
The intended outcome of the arts/theater program is to allow patrons the opportunity to experience a variety of theater productions that expose them to different genres of literature, music, and performance. A survey was distributed to receive feedback from those attending the programs.
Surveys were distributed to participants at all programs. 84% strongly agreed that this was an enjoyable experience and 80% strongly agreed that they would attend a similar event. Comments: The performers presented science in a fun way that both children and adults could enjoy. The program was fast paced and the energy and passion the actors brought to the topic made it interesting.
15 libraries provided space, staff, and additional promotion for the programs and approximately 8 regional newspapers provided marketing through press releases, photos and interviews with artists and performers.
