The Light Fantastic

Science Show from Kinetic Theatre for KS1 & KS2 to stream/download

A Country and Western musical on the science topic of LIGHT and the solar system.

Where has all the colour gone? The problem is literally black and white: something or someone is stealing the colours of the world! The sky is white, trees are black and the rivers a murky grey. Lost on the banks of the Ohio, Country & Western singer Roy Gee stumbles upon the Light Fantastic café – the last remaining place to have any colour.

In a desperate bid to save the precious colours, he and café owner, Dolly, set to work. Using trays for mirrors, ice-cubes for prisms and saucers for lenses, they gradually unfold a major inter-planetary crisis! Only our own solar system can shed light on the problem. But is the café all it seems? Will the country roads take him home and will Dolly stand by her man? Find out more when you trip The Light Fantastic.

A futuristic mystery from a cowboy’s point-of-view…
