From the acclaimed producers of Horrible Histories comes the seriously squishy spectacular Horrible Science. Answering pressing questions like 'Why don't penguins get spots?' and 'Could picking your nose be dangerous?', the team use 3D Bogglevision to inject this science stage show with some seriously horrible effects that children will love. Using actors to animate science books, the story follows Billy Miller who enters the awesome World of Horrible Science and is soon under attack from beastly bacteria, vicious volts and foul fluids. Can the Horrible Histories crew do the same for science as they did for history? Come to the Bloomsbury Theatre and find out for yourself.

 

About Bloomsbury Theatre

Owned and part-funded by University College London, the Bloomsbury was completed in 1968 on the site of a bomb-damaged church. The years have not been kind to this style of architecture and its plate glass and dark brick front now looks drab and un-theatrical. More about Bloomsbury Theatre
