What do you do when you are the most brilliant person in the room and are seen but not heard? As Henrietta works as a “computer” all day long she longs to be recognized and is challenged to bring her theory of Cepheid Variables to light. How do you balance your passion for astronomy while being pulled by your family, science, faith, and romance? Experience the incredible true story of Henrietta Leavitt, the American astronomer who paved the way for modern astronomy’s mapping of the universe.
Please Note: Weather permitting, the Williamson County Astronomy Club will be on hand for telescope viewing just outside the theater after all Friday and Saturday performances; and at 2:00 p.m. before Sunday performances, Physics professor and Fountainwood Observatory Director Dr. Mark Bottorff will host a lecture titled “A Heartbeat in the Heavens: Henrietta Leavitt’s Grand Discovery.”
September 28-30 and October 12-14
Friday and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 3:00 p.m.
