Simple Machines that Run the Show

Lucie Stern Theatre, Palo Alto

$10 per student and accompanying adult
Two 60-minute tours available

TheatreWorks Silicon Valley and Science is Elementary (SiE) team up for a fun backstage look at how simple machines make the show go on! Witness how what we learn about science in school lives in the world: pulleys and weights, inclined planes, wheels, axles, and more! Then conduct experiments with the same simple machines to see them in action. Fun for parents and students alike!


For those interested in seeing it all come together in a performance of Pride and Prejudice, please call 650.463.1960 for ticket information and purchase.
