Susan Marie Frontczak portrays Marie Curie.
TARPON SPRINGS - Susan Marie Frontczak presents an in-character presentation: Manya, the Living History of Marie Curie on Sunday, Feb. 23, 2 p.m., at Tarpon Springs Performing Arts Center, 324 Pine St., Tarpon Springs.

Reserve seat admission is $16; $14 for members and students. Call 727-942-5605 or visit Tarponarts.org.

Scientist, mother, and teacher Madame Marie Curie (called Manya by her family) changed the world through her discovery of radium and radioactivity. She lived through political oppression, scientific fame, tragedy and world prominence with passion and perseverance.

Her story speaks to the tenacity of the human spirit and the enduring allure of scientific discovery. She is portrayed by Susan Marie Frontczak, who has presented Marie’s life story in nine countries.

This one-hour program honors a preeminent woman of science, the first woman in Europe to earn a doctorate in the sciences, first woman to lecture at the Sorbonne, and winner of two Nobel Prizes.

Re-live the exceptional collaboration between Pierre and Marie Curie, companion scientists, who worked with the medical community to establish the first successful treatments of cancer. This program honors the ethic of scientific altruism.

The Curies declined to patent their methods, insisting that to profit from the discovery of radium would be “contrary to the scientific spirit.” And, this program honors Manya’s Polish heritage – much neglected not only now, but in her own life, to her own dismay.

Whether looking at Marie within her historical context or through the lens of a new millennium, this is a life that challenges our assumptions about what one person can achieve and the responsibilities of science.

For 28 years “storysmith” Susan Marie Frontczak has brought literature to life, created stories from thin air, and honed personal experience into tales worth telling again and again. She plays in theatres, corporations, schools, libraries, and festivals internationally. Her Marie Curie presentations have taken her to 29 of the United States and internationally for over 190 performances.
