About the Show:

In this exciting new work, Doktor Kaboom, along with a magnificent cast of volunteers, demonstrates the power of pressure. Something all around us, which although we cannot see it, affects us all.

Equal parts interactive science, comedy, and personal empowerment messages, Doktor Kaboom: Under Pressure! clearly illustrates physical science concepts which are also metaphors for some of the real-life mental and emotional pressures we all experience.

If you’ve seen Doktor Kaboom, you know he is as passionate about empowering individuals as he is about science.  Always on the lookout for opportunities to inspire audiences to be their best selves Dr. K elevates volunteers to being the heroes of the moment.  In Under Pressure!, Kaboom will validate the pressures some students may feel, and share tools and life lessons as resources for dealing with the difficulties that face us all.

“It will be our most intentioned show yet. As well as learning and having fun with science, Under Pressure!  is going to spark conversations and let young people know their feelings are real, and they are not alone.”
