     HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University’s Columbia Theatre for the Performing Arts’ youngest fans will get an extra treat on April 13 when the downtown Hammond theater presents Garry Krinsky in Toying with Science. Scheduled for one performance only at 2 p.m., Toying with Science is being presented as part of the theater’s Pajamas and Play series designed to make theater performances especially accessible and appealing for children.
     “Kids are invited to wear their pajamas, robes and slippers to the 60-minute performances, no matter the time,” said Roy Blackwood, director of Columbia Theatre and Fanfare. “We even plan to send the kids home with cookies and milk.”
     Toying with Science is a fast-paced, varied and dynamic program, Blackwood said.
     “The production combines circus skills, mime, original music, and audience involvement in the exploration of the scientific principles of gravity, leverage, fulcrums, and simple machines,” explained Blackwood. “Garry Krinsky and his audience investigate basic scientific information and delve into the imaginations of scientists who have played important roles in the exploration and discovery of concepts that define our world.”
     Tickets for Toying with Science are on sale at the Columbia/Fanfare box office, 220 E. Thomas Street, 985-543-4371. The box office is open Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and one hour prior to Columbia performances.
