GOLDEN CHAIN THEATRE
Laura Gunderson, playwright
Based on the true story of Henrietta Leavitt, an early 20th century astronomer hampered in her passions because she was born into an age where women didn’t pursue such things. The play blends humor and romance in a riveting exploration of her life and how she fearlessly asserted herself in the male-driven, turn of the century world of science and academia.
Henrietta Levitt (Lead) Female, 30-40 brilliant, determined, a dreamer, hard of hearing (wears a period hearing aid), has never much cared for the “status quo.”
Margaret Levitt (Supporting) Female, younger than her sister but over age 20) a homebody, genuine, sweet-natured, realist. (Ability to sing and play the piano a plus.)
Peter Shaw (Supporting): Male, 30-40
the head astronomer’s apprentice; reserved; his views have never really been challenged prior to the events of the play. He is in love with Henrietta, as she is with him.
Annie Cannon (Supporting): Female, 30-50
a leader; tough, sure, grows into a firebrand for the suffrage movement.
Willamina Fleming (Supporting): Female, 40-65
Scottish; intelligent, witty, warm, and outgoing; the first of her kind, smart as a whip and fun. (Role requires a Scottish accent.)
Auditioners will be reading from a provided copy of the script.
