This fall the Bishop Museum is expanding its programming with the return of laser shows and children’s stories with a scientific twist.

The J. Watumull planetarium is hosting a children’s play entitled “The Boy who fell in Love with a Star” which combines the building’s technology and live theater.  The play is written and performed by Adela Chu and storyteller Jeff Gere.  Performances run from October 15th until mid-November, with shows at 9:00 and 10:30.  Gere says it’s a science lesson woven into a children’s story.

In addition to the story… the Bishop Museum’s planetarium will bring back its laser light show with the music of Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon” and a Halloween themed “Fright Night”.  There is an additional cost for the Planetarium shows.  Purchasing tickets in advance is strongly recommended.
