The Women Who Mapped the Stars by Joyce Van Dyke
Feb. 8-10, 15-17 at 7:30 pm and
Feb. 18 at 2:00 pm.
Directed by Todd Sherman  

All performances will be held at The Calusa Nature Center &
Planetarium located at 3450 Ortiz Ave, Fort Myers, FL 33905.  

In The Women Who Mapped the Stars, five women astronomers
working together at the Harvard Observatory help to shape the
development of astrophysics.  

In this time-bending, non-linear play, theatre goers will experience
the rivalries and friendships of five very different women as they
build on each other’s work, feed each other’s dreams, exult in the
thrill of discovery, struggle for recognition, and open the doors for
those who come after them.   

Cast: Lauren Drexler, Shelley Sanders, Ellie Appelgren, Isabella
Cintron and Stacy Stauffe.  

This performance is generously sponsored by Janet & Bruce Bunch.

Dexter, the Improv Musical  

Feb. 23-25, 7:30-9:30 pm •Jeff Lindsay, the creator of
Dexter Morgan, has written more than his Dexter and
Riley Wolfe novels. He’s also written over two dozen
plays for theatre, and he did improv comedy in L.A.
And now he’s written something new that combines
all three; Dexter the (Improv) Musical is coming to
the Alliance for the Arts stage.  

“It’s not a play,” Lindsay says. “It’s an Un-Play. There’s
a script, but we never really know what’s in it. It’s always
different – a world premiere every night.”
