Auditions will be held in Pilling Hall at the First United Methodist Church of Germantown, 6001 Germantown Avenue (between High Street and Walnut Lane). Please use the accessible entrance off of the Germantown Avenue Parking lot.

Performances are Fridays and Saturdays, March 9 to 24, at 8:00 P.M.


CHARACTERS:
Note: The action of the play covers many years, but there will be no attempt to age the actors. Ages are, therefore, somewhat flexible.

HENRIETTA LEAVITT (early 30s) a brilliant astronomer, passionate about her studies, frustrated by the limited opportunities for women working at the Harvard Observatory. Never the less, she remains passionate about her research, making revolutionary discoveries while working on her own. She is hard of hearing and wears a hearing aid.

MARGARET LEAVITT (20s-30s) Henrietta’s sister. A talented pianist and composer. When Henrietta heads off for Boston, she stays at home to care for their father, marries and has a son. (Must sing a bit, but need not play piano.)izzie Borden ten years after the murders, now a very wealthy woman with dark secrets and burning passion. She acts out the part of Bridget Sullivan, the BordenÕs feisty Irish maid with a soft spot for Lizzie. Must be able to do (or learn to do) a good Irish accent.

ANNIE CANNON (40 +) a strong minded feminist, demonstrating for women’s rights. She is head of the women’s section of the Harvard Observatory.

WILLIAMINA FLEMING (50 +) a former housekeeper, now working at the Harvard Observatory, she is smart, funny, and speaks her mind. She has a Scottish accent.

PETER SHAW (30s) apprentice to the head astronomer at the Harvard Observatory. He is somewhat uncomfortable around women. He is also (almost) Henrietta’s love interest.

The Drama Group is an all volunteer theatre company.
