"An incredible journey of discovery was enjoyed by over 250 students and staff when Mario and Immersive Theatres landed at National Star. The 50th anniversary of the Moon Landing was our focus but so much more was offered for our students and staff to see over the course of the week. The 6m dome filled the theatre auditorium. Visitors were welcomed by Mario and the shows were presented meeting the interests and needs of all those attending. Mario's open and flexible approach enabled all to access and enjoy the experience. I would highly recommend a week long residency and to encourage other schools/colleges to come and share the experience with you. Amazing - out of this world adventure"

The children were buzzing afterwards and was definitely a worthwhile experience for them. Thank you very much!"

"Thank you so much for our planetarium visit last week, it exceeded my expectations and was the best planetarium show I have seen!! The children were buzzing afterwards, and members of staff approached me to say how fantastic it was. All the children were able to say what they enjoyed or had learnt from the show. It was completely age appropriate, awe inspiring and it was great to see aspects that we had already covered (i.e. first man on the moon) included in the show. I will definitely be passing on your details to colleagues"

"Thank you, an amazing experience. We learned a lot and it brought our topic to life. Children's comments included:

  • There were loads of planets
  • Super amazing watching it
  • It looked like we were in space
  • I liked the real astronauts on the real Moon
  • Jupiter has lots of storms"

"Thanks again Mario for another great Planetarium event! The Natural World theme worked brilliantly with the natural crafts and eco-theme. The children LOVED it. The coral reef exploration was captivating and the weather shows were amazing by all accounts :) The kids were buzzing and we've had some lovely feedback from the public (young and not so young) attending the later shows. We made a good profit this year with the ticket sales and pop-up cafe so that's a great result for a 125 pupil village school. We've already been asked about arranging more and I really like your art suggestion in which children can produce their own art and 'fish-eye' it for the dome. They would LOVE that! Much appreciated again and we'll look forward to next time!"
