THE APRIL FOOL'S SHOW!

Tuesday, April 1, 2014    7:00 p.m.

Jester

We continue a particularly idiotic planetarium tradition.  "THE APRIL FOOL'S SHOW" is a complete mystery.  We have no idea which program we'll present until the very moment the program starts. (We actually roll a 20-sized Dungeons and Dragons die to determine the show.)     This is the only program of the year that is unknown to both the audience and presenter.

It could be:

EIGHT PLANETS AND COUNTING OMNI DOME SHOW

Full Dome: The Little Star That Could

TWO SMALL PIECES OF GLASS

IBEX: The Search for the Edge of the Solar System

"Transit of Venus" Show!

Rusty Rocket

Dinosaurs at Dusk!

Come to the "April Fool's Show" and find out for yourself!

$3.00 per person

$9.00 if you wear a costume. 

That's right.  We'll charge you triple the rate if you show up in a costume.

Pink Bunny suit "That IS stupid!"

Call 207-780-4249       or e-mail  egleason@usm.maine.edu to reserve your space or for more information.
