The show will take the audience on a journey through time and science joining Galileo on his quest to prove the earth revolves around the sun. Throughout the play, the evil scientist, Simplico, attempts to thwart the hero. Giant puppets bring the action to life in this unique and comical adventure that stresses the importance of asking questions. Scientific experiments also join in on the fun in telling the ancient stories of Cassiopeia and Egyptian Sunrise. This play is sure to leave the audience both educated and entertained!
It is the philosophy of the Xavier Players to combine real-life experiences in the form of meaningful service that relates to the issues presented in the plays. The Players believe it is in this act of service that one truly become socially aware. Galileo cast members will participate in Xavier’s Community Action Day and Shantytown service projects. Xavier, as a Catholic Jesuit University, strives to form students intellectually, morally, spiritually, with rigor and compassion, toward lives of solidarity, service and success.
