Fowler Center Presents Super Scientific Circus


JONESBORO – Arkansas State University’s Fowler Center teams up with the Arkansas Science Festival to present Super Scientific Circus on Friday, Oct. 9, as the family friendly performance of the 2015-16 Riceland Distinguished Performance Series.

Shows will begin at 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. at Fowler Center, 201 Olympic Drive.  The show sponsor is the Arkansas Science Festival.

Fowler Center’s Family Friendly Series features affordable ticket prices and entertainment that appeals to younger audiences, according to Bob Simpson, Fowler Center director.

The Super Scientific Circus, starring Mr. Fish and Trent the Mime, proves that science can be fun and funny.  Alternately assisted and foiled by the comedic antics of Trent the Mime, Mr. Fish uses amazing circus skills involving boomerangs, bubbles, beach balls, bull whips, and magic to introduce the principles of friction, inertia, centripetal force, aerodynamics, sonic booms, air pressure and ultraviolet light.

All seating is reserved. Tickets for the Family Friendly Series are $8 for children and seniors, $10 for adults. For additional discounts for schools and groups of 15 or more, contact the A-State Box Office at 870-972-2781.
