UCM Brings CSI: LIVE! to Hendricks Hall

Contact Jeff Murphy
WARRENSBURG, MO (March 12, 2010) –Children and adults alike will enjoy an exclusive opportunity to share in the adventures of  CSI: LIVE!, the latest Mad Science® production at UCM. The university’s Department of Biochemistry, Chemistry and Physics is sponsoring this Performing Arts Series program, which includes a public presentation at 3 p.m. Sunday, March 21, and a school matinee at 10 a.m. Monday, March 22, both in Hendricks Hall.

CSI Live logoMad Science’s 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 be invited to the stage to 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 glasses, launching projectiles into a target, or firing a laser beam across the stage, the CSI recruits will have to be on their toes to solve the crime before it’s too late. Area residents are invited to join in the CSI: LIVE! adventure, helping to discover how the crime was committed, and who is guilty. The program is appropriate for audiences age eight and older.

Tickets, $10 for adults and $5 for K-12 and college students, can be obtained at the PAS Box Office in Administration 100 from noon to 5 p.m. weekdays, or by calling the box office at 660-543-8888. Individuals who want to know more, including information about the school matinee, are encouraged to contact the Performing Arts Series office at 660-543-4263.
