Science is fun when Dr. Wonderful is on the case.
Our family show is just the ticket for kids and parents alike.
There are no puzzles in space, right? Wrong! Space is one giant puzzle waiting to be put together by physicists, astronomers, and a brainy girl who goes by the name Dr. Wonderful. Audiences will fly through the solar system with Dr. Wonderful and her amazing adventure team of Newton (the dog) and Ben (the human) in this exciting musical.
Saving a super star from disappearing is no small task, especially when the star is 1.3 million times the size of Earth and 93 million miles away, but when Dr. Wonderful receives the call, her team leaps into action from their laboratory/bedroom into outer space. With a couple of butterscotch candies and a rock song from Mom in the mix, the mystery solvers are amazed by their final discovery. Girl-detective-noir meets science-geek-chic in this super cool astronomical event!
The Amazing Adventures of Dr. Wonderful (and her dog) features book and lyrics by Lauren Gunderson, with the score composed by Brian Lowdermilk. City Theatre’s production, directed by Jeff Revels, features Jessica Brooke Sandford (Dr. Wonderful), Christian Vandepas (Newton [the dog]) Carolina Pozo (Mom) and Bruno Vida (Ben).
This play was commissioned by The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and was first produced by The Kennedy Center during its 2011 Season.
The Amazing Adventures of Dr. Wonderful (and her dog) will open on Wednesday, June 18 and play through July 2, 2014. Tickets are $20 for public performances on Saturday and Sunday at 1 p.m. Tickets for weekday matinees for pre-arranged field trips are available through the Group Sales Department at 786-468-2326, with performances Tuesday through Friday at 10 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.
