This summer the Science Museum premieres The Energy Show, an electrifying new science show for families with children aged 7+.
Follow Annabella and Phil, two futuristic science students, as they race against time to prove their knowledge of energy through a series of live experiments. Featuring a virtual assistant named i-nstein and a steampunk workshop full of gadgets and chemicals, Annabella and Phil use liquid nitrogen, hydrogen rockets and electricity to create a dangerously exciting experience.

The Energy Show is a unique theatrical experience whose award-winning creative talent draws on the continued success of the Science Museum’s previous live science shows.
Directed and co-written by Martin Lamb, who has worked with the English National Opera and the V&A, The Energy Show boasts a creative team who have collectively worked nationally and internationally on more than 500 shows, including productions on the West End and Broadway. Their awards include a Tony Award, a Village Voice OBIE and a Theatregoers’ Choice Award. Full cast and crew details can be found under Notes to Editors.
Martin Lamb, Director, says “The Energy Show is a dynamic and fresh way for young people to engage with science, weaving together the best elements of a traditional live science show with the storytelling features of a family theatrical performance. Audiences will enjoy a distinctive and engaging experience.”
Toby Parkin, Co-producer and Outreach Manager at the Science Museum, says “The Energy Show creates universal appeal through a blend of eye-popping demonstrations and scientific reasoning. Whether it’s the steampunk laboratory, wise-cracking animated assistant or exploding Hydrogen, young people will engage with this show, no matter what their interest in science.”
Running at 75 minutes (no interval), The Energy Show is suitable for children 7+ and supports the Key Stages 2 and 3 science curriculum. Performances will be held in the Science Museum’s IMAX theatre on a newly installed mechanical stage.
Experiments and demonstrations include:
- Flaming Methane bubbles
- Exploding bottles of liquid nitrogen
- Lights powered by Plasma Balls
- A hair-raising Van de Graaff generator
- Soaring hydrogen-filled rockets
