PRESALE Tickets for the MYTHBUSTERS Tour
At Schuster Center
Sunday, June 23
Two Shows! 3:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.
The Victoria Theatre Association is offering Dayton Society of Natural History members PRESALE tickets for Mythbusters, coming to the Schuster Center on Sunday, June 23! Advance ticket sales begin Tuesday, April 16, so be sure to reserve your seat today! (Tickets will be available to the general public on April 22.)
Tickets range from $36-$56 (plus service fees, and prices subject to change). To access the presale tickets, you must use our PRESALE Code: ADAM
This all-new, live stage show stars Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage, co-hosts of the Emmy®-nominated Discovery series, “MythBusters.” Get ready for an unexpected evening of on-stage experiments, audience participation, rocking video and behind-the-scenes stories. For the first time ever, fans will join Jamie and Adam on stage and assist in their mind-twisting and not always orthodox approach to science. MYTHBUSTERS – BEHIND THE MYTHS brings you face to face with the curious world of Jamie and Adam as the duo matches wits on stage with each other and members of the audience.
One of the Discovery Channel’s most highly regarded and watched series, “MythBusters” is now in its tenth season. Co-hosted by Hyneman and Savage, “MythBusters” mixes scientific method with gleeful curiosity and plain old-fashioned ingenuity to create its own signature style of explosive experimentation–and the supporting or de-bunking of urban myths that we live with day to day.
Recommended for ages 6 and up. MYTHBUSTERS – BEHIND THE MYTHS is family friendly and appropriate for all ages, but parents should only bring young children if they can sit through a two hour theatrical show. For the consideration of all patrons, children on laps and/or babes in arms are not permitted at Victoria Theatre Association Star Attraction presentations.
