Singapore’s first special effects production rooted in Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and the arts (STEM+) will run at the Science Centre from May 26 to Jun 4.

Titled The ELECTRIFIED Show, the production features 12 acts following protagonist Spark, who encounters an energy ball. The ball catches the attention of Rex, who decides to chase Spark through a sci-fi world.

Visitors can expect to see magic, fire and laser displays, flying drones, robotics and nitrogen explosions throughout the production. Selected audience members may have the chance to experience levitation through a flying rocket.

“This is a prime example of how performance arts and theatre can lend themselves to science education and training, and we hope to entertain as well as spark curiosity and passion for STEM through the mesmerising world of special effects,” said the Chief Executive of the Science Centre Board, Associate Professor Lim Tit Meng.

The production is led by local magician, illusionist and special effects artiste Kiki Tay. He co-directed several mass displays for major events, including the Asian Youth Games Opening Ceremony and Singapore’s National Day Parade.

The ELECTRIFIED Show is suitable for audiences aged seven and above. The show will include flashing lights and loud noises.

Admission to the show begins at $38 per ticket for category three, followed by $48 for category two, and $58 for category one. All tickets include admission into the Science Centre and a $5 Curiosity Shop voucher.

Tickets are now available for purchase from SISTIC. Visitors may choose between three showtimes at 10.30am, 2.00pm and 4.30pm.
