About the Explora Theater

Explora Theater produces a variety of live science theater performances and is located on the second floor of Explora. This program promotes science-rich learning experiences for all ages through live theater. School, community and family groups can book an hour-long educational theater program about important people and achievements in science, technology and art.

One-act plays

Famous scientists, explorers, artists and others who have changed our world come alive to talk about their life and work in the Explora Theater's weekend one-act plays. Performances run about a half-hour and offer visitors an opportunity to ask the performer questions afterward.

Full-length plays

The Explora Theater produces full-length plays related to science once a year. These range from classics like Bertolt Brecht’s Galileo to pieces by contemporary playwrights like David Mamet’s The Water Engine and D. W. Gregory’s Radium Girls.
