Bubbles to reign at Theatre by the Sea

Keith Michael Johnson’s enormously popular production, “The Secret World of Bubbles,” will return to Theatre by the Sea for two performances on Saturday, Sept. 4.

Packed with stunning state-of-the-art bubble sculptures designed to snare the attention of every audience member, the science behind the magic unfolds like a mystery, making this show both educational and unforgettable.

From huge wobbly bubbles dancing in the air to smaller intricate bubble sculptures that eventually fall up to the ceiling, the Secret World of Bubbles is a celebration of creativity, expression, invention, imagination and hard work. It’s a skillful blend of outrageous bubble effects and seriously fun bubble experiments that can be tried at home.

Keith Michael Johnson – as seen on the Discovery Channel’s “Time Warp” – became the first soap bubble artist in America to create a bubble show with the help of public funding through the R.I. State Council on the Arts, through a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, an appropriation from the R.I. General Assembly and private donors.

The Secret World of Bubbles will be presented on Saturday, Sept. 4, at 10 a.m. and noon. The theatre is located at 364 Cards Pond Rd. in Matunuck.

Single tickets are $10 each; discount rates are available for groups of 20 or more by calling 782-3800, x-18.

Tickets are on sale at the box office Monday through Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and at www.theatrebythesea.com. Call 782- 8587 to reach the box office.
