The Audience Solves the Mysteries at Math Mystery Theater

The stage will be set for pure mathematical genius! 

The Math Mystery Theater’s talented performers will transport you to the Candy Counter where Dum Dum and the Candy Maker will delight, entertain and educate children and parents alike. Gumballs galore coupled with hilarious foibles and follies will engage the audience as they actively participate in solving mystery equations with state-of-the-art interactive technology developed by MIND Research Institute.

Using virtual classroom technology on tablet computers situated throughout the theater, young audience members interact with the on-stage action, helping the Candy Maker and Dum Dum solve a sticky situation involving estimation, arithmetic, and logic with even and odd numbers. The action takes place in a colorful candy laboratory and includes an Alien Laser Ray!
