Silent Sky historical play at Valhalla
The Valhalla Boat House Theatre hosts historical play Silent Sky 2022 starting on Friday. The play features the true story of Henrietta Leavitt and her fellow researchers also known as the “Computers” of the Harvard University Observatory.
The computers set the standard still used today to measure distances in space while discovering thousands of new stars. The play is set prior to women’s suffrage, during a time when the credit of discoveries was taken from women and proclaimed by male astronomers.
Lessons of strength, perseverance and the light that connects us all shines through the voices of Leavitt and her friends. An evening of entertainment fueled by history is guaranteed.
Dates for shows include Friday, June 24, Sunday, June 26, Thursday, June 30, Friday, July 1, and Saturday, July 2.
