NACOGDOCHES, TEXAS - Seats are still available for the children's show, "Super Scientific Circus," to be presented by the Stephen F. Austin State University Children's Performing Arts Series at 9:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. both Thursday, Feb. 5, and Friday, Feb. 6, in W.M. Turner Auditorium.

"Since this show always attracts a large audience, we are offering four different presentations this year," said Diane J. Flynn, series director. "It's not too late to make reservations for large or small groups."

During the one-hour program, Mr. Fish and Trent the Mime use circus stunts and magic tricks to highlight scientific principles to kindergarteners through high school students. With the use of eggs, boomerangs, bubbles, a bucket of water, beach balls, leaf blowers, whips and a stack of glassware, they demonstrate flight, aerodynamics, friction, the sound barrier, inertia, centrifugal force and more.

Tickets are $6 for individuals or $5 for groups of 20 or more. To order tickets or for more information, please call (936) 468-6407 or (888) 240-ARTS.

The Children's Performing Arts Series is presented by the SFA College of Fine Arts and is sponsored in part by Commercial Bank of Texas.
