‘Danny Carmo’s Mathematical Mysteries’ will perform at Purdue on Nov. 11
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Northern Ireland’s premier children’s theatre company, Cahoots NI, will bring “Danny Carmo’s Mathematical Mysteries” to the Stewart Center’s Loeb Playhouse on Nov. 11 at 3 p.m.
This performance is presented by Purdue Convocations with support from M.P. Baker Electric, Cook Biotech and Barash Law. Prior to the performance, enjoy math and magic activities in the Stewart Center lobby at 2 p.m.
Meet Danny Carmo. He thinks school isn’t for him — math in particular. He dreams of a future as a world-famous musician. But as he learns the tricks of the trade, Carmo realizes math is not only essential to learning … but the secret to unlocking magic unlike any the world has ever seen. Theatre, digital technology, and mathematics come together in this fun, interactive performance. Prepare to be bewildered, and dazzles right along with Danny in a spectacular show that proves understanding math can be fun.
