What do you see when you look up at the night sky?
You may have a bit of a different view after you see “Galileo – Stars In His Eyes”.
This is a play written for children but I know that adults will enjoy this wonderful and inspirational story as much as any kid.
The story is of Galileo Galilei, Italian astronomer, physicist, engineer, and father. He was obsessed with finding the truth, this obsession leads him to examine the stars and that examination brought him to many epiphanies. The story is told through his young daughter’s eyes.
“Galileo – Stars In His Eyes” is written by Mary Bennett and takes the audience through a delightful and educational tour of a time in history when science was new and discovery was at times challenging. The evolution of the telescope is also a piece of the story and with that the discovery of how our solar system works.
This is a short high energy play that will delight any audience that is lucky enough to see it. The cast brings life to the story and offers the audience to take part in the show as well.
Take your kids to see “Galileo – Stars In His Eyes”, if you don’t have kids to take then find your inner child and take yourself.
