The show is suitable for all ages and venues and has been designed to work well in the smallest village school or in a large professional theatre.

Linked to the school curriculum, the show tells the story of sound as it travels through the ear to the brain, what happens in different parts of the hearing system, and how each part can 'break down', for example when the ear is damaged by noise.

The show was informative, interactive and engaging. I have not been looking after my ears properly. I am now going to turn my mp3 player down and carry a pair of ear plugs with me where ever I go. – Year 11 student.


A delightful mixture of fun and laugher with scientific information and thoughtful elements. The children were involved with the show and amazed by some of the areas of the show. – Primary school teacher.
