Prepare to be amazed, dazzled and bewildered by Danny Carmo’s Mathematical Mysteries – a spectacular show where math, theater and digital technology collide to create an interactive performance proving that understanding math can be fun! Meet Danny Carmo –  it’s not so long ago that he thought school and, in particular, math wasn’t for him. He was more interested in dreaming about a future on the stage – all he ever wanted to be was a famous magician. But when he knuckled down to learn all the tricks of the trade, he realized that math was not only essential… it was the SECRET to a whole load of magic.

We all know the fable of the swan who grows up “ugly” in a family of ducks, later to find his appearance changing as he discovers his true identity.

These three “misfit” heroes work together to earn their home on the King’s estate and find the self-confidence that only friendship and accomplishment can provide. Please join us for this all-singing, all-dancing, all- delightful new musical.
