When two failing math students, Algie & Bray take a trip to an enchanted museum, anything can happen. After falling behind their tour group, the kids stumble upon an old broken-down exhibit called “The Brain.” The premise is that you can ask the Brain any question in the world and it will answer the question using math. Curious about the exhibit, they try to get it to work, but to no avail so they start to leave. Suddenly, in a whiz-bang flash, the brain comes to life and the excitement begins!
Weaving in the 5 basic strands of elementary mathematics, this multi-media musical proves how throughout civilization, math has led the way in every facet of our history.
Filled with fun audience participation songs like “Pollution Solution” and “The Tap Measure”, Algie & Bray can’t wait to get back to the classroom and share their new-found knowledge. In the rousing finale, “Math Rules”, the students learn that from sports to science, medicine to music, math is necessary in every part of our lives. Performed by Stages Productions.
