WICHITA - Auditions for Wichita Community Theatre’s Silent Sky, directed by Mary Lou Phipps-Winfrey, will be held Saturday, Feb. 17 from 11am-1pm and Sunday, Feb 18 from 2-5pm at the theatre, 258 N. Fountain. Rehearsals begin in early March for the show that runs April 19-29.
Needed are one man in his 30’s and four women, two in their 30’s, one in their 40-50’s, and one in their 50-60’s with Scottish accent.
Silent Sky tells the true story of 19th-century astronomer Henrietta Leavitt, exploring 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. Leavitt and her female peers changed the way people understand both the heavens and Earth.
