Today we start rehearsal for Season 13 at Williamston Theatre, with a beautiful play called Silent Sky by Lauren Gunderson. A gorgeous story, it’s all about Henrietta Leavitt, one of the first women astronomers. (Link is here for more info) I’m super excited: The play is wonderful, the production team I get to work with is top-notch, and the cast is fabulous.
Some designs I can leak:
This set rendering (Design by Kirk Domer) is from the SR audience viewpoint. Imagine the back wall being full of stars, or projections, or color, or a combination of all 3!
And here’s an image of the set construction as of a couple days ago!
I’ll post more designs and images as the days go by.
This is going to be a fun one. Warm, funny, beautifully moving, and deeply inspirational. Lauren Gunderson has taken the real-life story of Henrietta Leavitt and crafted a play about a woman who simply refused to accept the status quo – and changed the world. This is the kind of life-affirming play that makes you wanna explore the world around you, tackle something big and make a difference!
