“This show is what you want live children’s theatre to be.” -

Doktor Kaboom! is an interactive one-man science variety show. Creatively blending theater arts with the wonders of scientific exploration, Doktor Kaboom's supercharged (and super safe!) science experiments will have you erupting with laughter and bubbling with curiosity.

Doktor Kaboom is having trouble picking his favorite science demonstrations, so he’s bringing them all! Unfortunately, there are way too many to do them all in one show. The solution: The Wheel of Science! Doktor Kaboom has built a great big spinning wheel and labeled it with everything from optical illusions to chemical reactions to a homemade hovercraft, and more! At least a dozen fantastic demonstrations are ready to go, and wherever the wheel stops, that’s what’s next! So, step right up, and let’s spin that wheel!
