LEWISBURG, Pa. — LEO, The Anti-Gravity Show, will come to the Weis Center for the Performing Arts at Bucknell University Tuesday, Sept. 24, at 7:30 p.m.

The event is sponsored, in part, by Dede and Bob Gronlund and Family.

LEO, The Anti-Gravity show begs the question, what would happen if the law of gravity were suddenly to change?

Ideal for ages 9+, LEO leaves audience members wondering which way is up and which way is down.

A clever interplay of live performance and video projection, LEO is a mind-bending, funny, surreal and surprisingly touching work that challenges the senses and tests perceptions of reality.

Time Out New York says, "LEO is an eye-teasing, grin-inducing, deeply impressive work of sustained absurdist magic." 

Directed by the Montréal actor and director Daniel Briére, and based on an original idea by Tobias Wegner, LEO won several major awards at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival including the Carol Tambor Best of Edinburgh Award, the Three Weeks Editors Award and the Scotsman Fringe First Award.

Tickets for the performance are $20 for adults, $16 for seniors ages 62+, $10 for youth under 18, and $10 for all college students.

Tickets can be purchased online at or by calling the Campus Box Office at 570-577-1000.

Tickets are also available in person from several locations including the Weis Center lobby weekdays 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; the Barnes & Noble at Bucknell University bookstore in Lewisburg weekdays and Saturday, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Sunday, 12:30 to 4 p.m.; and the CAP Center Box Office, located on the ground floor of the Elaine Langone Center, weekdays, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The Family Discovery Series continues on Dec. 14 with David Engel's Pirate School (ages 4-8) and on March 1, 2014, with Lightwire Theater's Dino Light (ages 7+).
