The Bower School of Music & the Arts at Florida Gulf Coast University’s Theatre Program will present The Life of Galileo written by Bertolt Brecht and directed by Theatre professor Barry Cavin in TheatreLab in the Arts Complex at FGCU.
This production will run from April 12 – 21. Performances will be April 12, 13, 19 and 20 at 7:30 p.m. and April 14, 20 and 21 at 2 p.m. There will also be a discussion with the cast and crew following the 2p.m. performance on April 20.
The authorities are terrified the populace may gain knowledge, so they condemn it as an unpardonable sin.
Galileo, a flawed man who desperately wants to share his discoveries to the world, fears he may meet the same fate as Bruno who was burnt at the stake for defying the will of those in charge. But the stars are there for all to see and one day, Galileo knows, the people will simply look up.
Tickets for this production are $15 for the general public and $7 for students and are available for purchase online at, or at the door.
