Hope College to Present “CSI Live”

 Science, mystery and excitement will combine when Hope College welcomes the Mad Science production of "CSI Live" on Saturday, Jan. 24, at 2 p.m. at the Knickerbocker Theatre in downtown Holland. The production is aimed for ages eight and older.

"CSI: Live" is an exciting, interactive journey through the fascinating world of crime scene investigations.  When a crime is committed at the Las Vegas premiere of the Max Spade Magic Show, the CSI team springs into action.  Sydney Mathis and David Hart play the roles of CSI investigators and are on the case, assisted by supervisor Gil Grissom through a live video connection from the Las Vegas Crime Lab.

Audience members will jump up on stage and become part of the action; becoming witnesses, suspects and CSI recruits.  Together they will use their superior logic and forensic know-how to uncover hidden details, investigate the evidence and test their theories.  Whether it's analyzing mysterious gasses, launching projectiles into a target, or firing a laser beam across the stage, the CSI recruits will have to be on their toes to help solve the crime before it's too late.

Mad Scienceis the world's leading fun science brand. Its entertaining and engaging productions spark the imagination of children and family audiences with shows conducted in amusement parks, theme parks, fairs, schools, camps and homes.
