Who Thought of That?

A Time-Traveling Adventure

The UNH ArtsREACH Troupe are curious about so many things. When one of the members brings out a time machine, they know just what to do with it! Join in on the fun as the troupe travels throughout time and history to visit some of their favorite inventors, learning about discoveries that changed the world!

This fast-paced journey will introduce audiences to some great figures in history as well as offer suggestions on who should be their next research subject!

"Who Thought of That?" is ideal for grades K-6


The ArtsREACH touring program visits schools and performs a 30-45 minute program for elementary and middle school-aged students throughout the region. Shows also include a talk-back opportunity for students to learn more about the content of the show, the process of touring theatre, and more. The actors of these productions are UNH Undergraduate Theatre and Dance students from the University of New Hampshire in Durham, NH.
