Bruka Theatre for Children Galileo Stars in His Eyes

April 17, 2019 @ 4:00 pm

Brüka Theatre is currently touring the original theatre for children production of “Galileo – Stars In His Eyes” with public performances held at local libraries thanks to a partnership with Brüka Theatre, The Pioneer Youth Performing Arts and The Washoe County Library System.  The final performance is held at Brüka Theatre in Reno on July 13th 2019 at 11 AM.  Tickets are $5 for ages 12 years old and under and $10 for general admission.  

“Galileo – Stars In His Eyes” is an enchanting play written with children in mind about the famous scientist, Galileo, his incredible discoveries about the cosmos and the challenges and great discoveries he experienced through the perspective of his young daughter Virginia and his two other children.  Virginia was only nine years old when her father perfected his telescope and experimented with the laws of nature. His discoveries and their connection are woven through this fast-paced, eye-opening piece of live theatre. Brüka brings different styles of theatre and participation in the theatre for children performances to expose young audiences to an entertaining and deeper understanding of theatrical presentations with links to the curriculum.  Brüka Theatre partners with Pioneer Youth Programs and different venues when touring to schools and communities.

Brüka Theatre has been presenting live theatre in our community for 26 years.  This touring production features professional actors bringing the story to life with a small set of props and costumes.  This live theatre performance incorporates physical theatrics, improvisation, and audience interaction.  Children are invited to participate in each performance, ensuring that every show is unique.  Funny and insightful, this theatre troupe features top-notch performers and writers who consistently involve young people in learning and participating in theatre and related arts.
