“THE GALACTIC JOURNEY” LIVE MUSICAL PRODUCTION (Showing Daily)

An inventor, wanting to explore strange, new worlds and seek out new life and new civilizations (but not interested in boldly going to them through long, boring spaceflights) uses wormholes – portals that cut across space-time – to bring them within a step of his lab.  But, something goes horribly wrong.  During a demonstration of his work at the Children’s Museum of Houston, the wormholes begin forming exponentially, putting strain on the containment fields and causing our world to merge with the other worlds, times, and dimensions.  If it continues to go out-of-control, the chain-reaction bleed between all points in the multi-verse will go critical.  Can the inventor, with the help of a time traveler, friends from other worlds and you, explore the worlds, neutralize the wormholes, and stop the malfunction?  Find out during an action-packed live production happening every day.  Check online for times.
