Unbelievable Science at York Theatre Royal: A Mumbler review
Guest Review by Local Mumbler, Jane
On Saturday afternoon we went to York Theatre Royal to see Morgan & West’s brand new show… Unbelievable Science! Find out what we thought in our review below.
We enjoyed a nice treat on Saturday afternoon with a visit to York Theatre Royal to see Unbelievable Science. With two 9 year old’s in tow, we grabbed our 3D glasses on the way in and waited for the show to start! We were hoping to see experiments, explosions and plenty of mind-bending tricks and we weren’t disappointed!
About the show
Morgan & West are one of the most recognisable conjuring acts around! Plus they hide a secret… they are both Oxford graduates with degrees in physics and chemistry and are fully qualified secondary school teachers!
Audiences can expect captivating chemistry, phenomenal physics, and bonkers biology in this fun for all the family science extravaganza! Fires, explosions, lightning on stage, optical illusions, mass audience experiments, and 3D shadow puppets await all those wily enough to come along and be intrigued by science.
In the age of ‘so-called experts’ Morgan & West felt it was time to bring families together to marvel and wonder at science and nature, provoking questions and discussions as to how things work and what regular people themselves can learn from it.
Unbelievable, believable science!
The show started with 7 great reaction experiments with some pretty impressive colour changes happening! That was followed by plenty more scientific fun, including messing with sounds and 3D through our eyes and ears!
Our favourite part was the cardboard box trick! We don’t want to give anything anyway but let’s just say it involved a box, a very tall man and a lot of wooden sticks!
As Morgan and West explained, their show is called ‘Unbelievable Science’ but maybe it should be ‘Believable Science’ as everything they did was real and based on their scientific knowledge!
My 9 year old thought the show was…
“…very funny and silly! I really enjoyed it and the electricy stunt right at the end was amazing and terrifiing!”
