"Honey, I Shrunk the Audience"

The Imagination Institute plays host to the “Inventor of the Year” awards and being honored this time out is Professor Wayne Szalinski.

Presenting the award is Dr Nigel Channing (played by Eric Idle) who unwittingly invites you to attend the ceremony and its ensuing demonstrations.

As you might expect, things don’t go quite to plan from there on in, and the Professor goes from one mishap to the next, culminating with his malfunctioning ‘shrinking machine’ being directed at you, the audience!

The rest of the Szalinski family try to help the professor get things back to normal, but not before Wayne’s son Nick’s pet Python makes its presence known, and his younger son Adam mistakes you for a play toy.

Eventually though, Professor Szalinski manages to fix his shrinking machine and manages to restore you back to your former size. However the professors dog, quark, gets caught in the resizing beam to become 10 times his normal size, creating further background chaos as he sniffs around the stage.

As the curtain comes down, there’s just enough time left for one last surprise before you head to the exit, but to be kinda blows!
