Sussex County Community College's (SCCC) Visual and Performing Arts Department presents "Silent Sky" by Lauren Gunderson. SCCC's production of "Silent Sky" is directed by Allison Ognibene, stage managed by Lisa Geerhart, technical directed by Tim O'Connor and lighting designed by Jake Jackson. The cast includes Jacqueline Mull as Henrietta Leavitt; Samantha Masih as Margaret Leavitt; Dominic Chiocchi as Peter Shaw; Isabella Cruz as Annie Jump Cannon; and Alexis Borowic as Williamina Fleming.
The true story of 19th-century astronomer Henrietta Leavitt explores a woman’s place in society during a time of immense scientific discoveries, 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.
Show dates are Thursday, May 5, at 7:30 p.m.; Friday, May 6, at 7:30 p.m. On Saturday, May 7, the show will begin at 7 p.m. with a discussion with the cast and SCCC Theater History II class immediately following.
