FOX Family Series Presents 'That Physics Show' April 6

Professional physics demonstrator brings scientific 'magic' to Spokane on Saturday, April 6, 7pm at Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox.

What damage can a ping pong ball do as it hurtles at 700 miles per hour through a vacuum tube? Can you see the shape of sound in a dancing flame? Oh no - it looks like that bowling ball is going to smash him in the face, but it didn't!

Veteran Rutgers University physics demonstrator, Dave Maiullo, brings his scientific 'magic' from the world of physics to the stage of Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox after a long Off Broadway run in New York City and national touring. This show is interactive, with Maiullo asking for predictions from the audience before his experiments.

That Physics Show is designed for all ages, from elementary school children through great-grandparents. It's a show that will teach you a lot about the laws of physics, while entertaining you at the same time. If you love science, experiments and magic, this will be a memorable evening.

For more information and tickets visit or call 509-624-1200.
