MODESTO - The Gallo Center for the Arts and Modesto Area Partners in Science (MAPS) is partnering to present “Manya: A Living History of Marie Curie” to serve as a fundraiser for Modesto Junior College’s Great Valley Museum Sept. 27 at 7 p.m. Susan Marie Frontczak will portray Marie Curie, the first winner of two Nobel Prizes. The show will transcend the theme of science and touch on issues of politics, feminism, and history.
