Silent Sky

AACT will present Silent Sky by Lauren Gunderson beginning August 17th. Silent Sky is the true story of Henrietta Leavitt, the 19th-century astronomer who wasn’t allowed to touch a telescope! While struggling to balance her dedication to science with family obligations and the possibility of love, Henrietta and the women of the Harvard Observatory made discoveries that allow us to know our place in the universe.

We are proud to announce the following cast for Silent Sky:

Tricia Oliver as Henrietta Leavitt,
Ashley Hansana as Margaret Leavitt,
Thomas S Maple as Peter Shaw,
Andrea Holliday as Annie Cannon, and
Emily Stephens as Williamina Fleming‬
A huge thank you to all who auditioned!


Performances will be August 17-19 & 23-26
Tickets go on sale later in July


We are still looking for backstage help and help with props and costumes.
