Dr. Sprocket, a.k.a. Alan Fehr from Steinbach, knows how to both entertain and educate young audiences in this wacky, 45-minute improv show.

Resembling something between mad scientist and standup comedian, Sprocket appears in his lab coat and goggles to fire up his whirring, buzzing Incredible Storytelling Machine after feeding it. The kids egg him on as his mighty contraption then spits out a story that he brings to life with simple props and costumes.

A lot of the fun is watching how Fehr reacts when the kids throw him for a loop — and they do. His ad libbing — especially when needing to wrap up the storyline in two minutes flat — makes this a sweetly refreshing show kids of all ages can enjoy.
