You Are a Doughnut is a biological-musical-comedy inspired by the traditions of vaudeville and music hall.

 

We can't wait for you and your students to join biology teachers Oesoph A. Gus and Dewey Dean for a thrilling voyage through the human digestive system — where each brilliantly intriguing organ is paired with a hilarious sketch, song and/or science demonstration.

Below you will find links to a variety of resources — that you can use with your students before and after your visit to the theatre.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in contact by sending us an EMAIL.

Use these notes to introduce your students to the show, and then keep exploring...

Take an online tour of the human digestive system. (Coming late 2022).

Our show introduces a whole stack of scientific jargon — we've created this handy guide! (Coming late 2022).

You've seen the show... now, colour it in! (Coming late 2022)

Science concepts and ideas explored during this show include:

Physical digestion, chemical digestion, enzymes, peristalsis, vomiting, bile, emulsification, how food effects the colour of faeces.

The show also examines the purpose and function of the following sections/organs of the digestive system: mouth, oesophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, rectum, anus, liver, gall bladder and pancreas.
