Upstage Theater's 'Radium Girls' lights up MVCPA's SecondStage this weekend

Upstage Theater’s production of “Radium Girls” is set to run this weekend in downtown Mountain View.

Inspired by a true story, D.W. Gregory’s play is set in 1926, when radium was seen as a miracle cure, Madame Curie was an international celebrity and luminous watches were the latest rage. Two girls working at a watch factory painting dials fall ill with radium poisoning, and one of them, Grace Fryer, fights for her day in court.

Based in Mountain View, Upstage Theater is a teen-run theater company open to youth from throughout the Bay Area.

Performances of “Radium Girls” are scheduled 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 2:30 p.m. Sunday on the SecondStage at the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts, 500 Castro St.

Tickets are $17 (students age 21 and under) and $22 (adults).
