What's On Suncoast

What’s On Suncoast? 5.13 – 5.20

The Suncoast Post asks, “What’s On, Suncoast?” Here are some ideas for things around the area this week of May 13 – 20, 2022!

Eureka Day

Theatre on Suncoast

Eureka Day
Asolo Repertory Theatre, 5555 North Tamiami Trail, Sarasota, FL 34243

An illness is spreading through the progressive and painstakingly accepting Eureka Day School–and it’s more than the mumps. When the outbreak threatens to become an epidemic, it’s a race to see what will destroy this community first: the disease or each other. Despite the safe-space mentality, gluten-free scones from the local bakery, and open marriages that have moved beyond monogamy, secrets and lies still run rampant, and childhood vaccinations ignite fury. An explosive comedy that skewers sanctimony and the nature of our politics, Eureka Day asks: when does “us” become “them”?  


Contains mature themes and language. It is recommended for those aged 16+. *Dates/Times vary. Check Asolo Rep’s website for a complete schedule.

Science On Suncoast

Picturing Science: Museum Scientists and Imaging Technologies
The Bishop Museum of Science and Nature, 201 10th Street West, Bradenton, FL 34205

Did you know that different imaging technologies reveal hidden and intricate details about natural phenomena and cultural artifacts? Our upcoming exhibition — Picturing Science: Museum Scientists and Imaging Technologies — will show you more! This new limited-time exhibition opening to the public on March 5 in The Bishop’s East Gallery features more than 20 sets of striking large-format prints, and showcases work by scientists at the American Museum of Natural History and items from The Bishop’s collections!

The images featured were created to pursue scientific knowledge — but the work also resulted in visually arresting art. The exhibition will allow you to explore how imaging technologies — including infrared photography, scanning electron microscopy, and computed tomography (CT) — make it possible to examine and analyze a range of specimens and phenomena at levels of detail previously unimaginable, advancing science and providing new insights into the visual splendor of the universe.
