Marc Spiegel brings the most famous scientist of the 20th century alive with his warm, vivid, and humorous portrayal of Albert Einstein in a program that blends science, history and entertainment.
Professor Einstein speaks of his life and guides the audience through the adventures in his mind. He shares the importance of curiosity, persistence, and independent thought and points out how Einstein’s imagination found connections where others saw contradictions. Children learn that by asking the simplest of questions, Einstein discovered new truths about our world.
Elementary students will clearly understand what the term relative means, how relativity relates to motion, how things move and what friction is.
The Middle School program starts with these concepts and then goes into greater depth. Some topics include the significance of the speed of light, electromagnetic radiation
and “What is special about the Special Theory of Relativity?”
All ages will enjoy the exciting on-stage demonstrations of relative motion with audience volunteers, unforgettable sing-along songs illustrating fundamental concepts, and a show full of spontaneous and humorous interaction capped off with a lively Q & A session.

|Ellis Island Stories|
Based on a collection of oral histories given by immigrants who actually passed through Ellis Island between 1892 and 1924, this play brings these tales of immigration to life through superb acting and authentic period costumes.
Three immigrant characters of different nationalities and an immigration inspector tell about the hardships of coming to America, the intimidating experience of their processing on Ellis Island, and the challenges of their lives in the “New World.”
The play emphasizes the human dimension of the immigration experience and fosters appreciation of other cultures.
The program has two parts: a 30-minute play, followed by a twenty-minute question and answer period.
Grades 4-12; College & Adult Program Also Available
