Auditions – “Silent Sky”

Latest News

When Henrietta Leavitt begins work at the Harvard Observatory in the early 1900s, she isn’t allowed to touch a telescope. Instead, she joins a group of women “computers,” charting the stars for a renowned astronomer who calculates projects in “girl hours.” As Henrietta, in her free time, attempts to measure the light and distance of stars, she must also take measure of her life on Earth, trying to balance her dedication to science with family obligations and the possibility of love. The true story of 19th-century astronomer Henrietta Leavitt explores a woman’s place in society during a time when women’s ideas were dismissed until men claimed credit for them. Social progress, like scientific progress, can be hard to see when one is trapped among earthly complications; Henrietta Leavitt and her female peers believe in both, and their dedication changed the way we understand both the heavens and Earth. “A startling, entertaining true story of a brilliant, history-making woman.”

Auditions will be held on Monday and Tuesday, December 12 and 13, at 6:00 p.m. at the Kokomo Civic Theatre Warehouse, 722 N. McCann St. Silent Sky is being directed by Beth Metcalf.

The roles in Silent Sky are: Henrietta Leavitt, 30s, brilliant, meticulous, and excited; Margaret Leavitt, 30s, Henrietta’s homebody sister; Peter Shaw, 30s, the head astronomer’s apprentice; Annie Cannon, 40s, female computer, the leader, terse and sure, grows into a firebrand; Williamina Fleming, 50s,female computer smart as a whip and fun, Scottish. 

The show dates are February 24, 25, 26. A script is on reserve at the downtown branch of the Kokomo Howard County Public Library for those wishing to revue it in advance.
