COMING NEXT: Silent sky • TICKETS

In 1903, Henrietta packed her things and left Wisconsin for an exciting new career as a “computer” at Harvard Observatory. However, her new position turned out to be… limited. But no amount of regulation was able to limit her mind or imagination. Join us for this magical, lyrical, inspiring play about sisters and stars, based on the the real women who mapped the night sky, without ever being permitted to look through a telescope.

WHEN: March 7–17, 7:30 pm evening performances, plus Saturday afternoons at 4 and Sundays at 2.
WHERE: Cheek Theatre, Rockford University
