Attention students in the Edmonton area! Walterdale Theatre is holding a free student preview night for their upcoming production of Silent Sky! (Based on availability. Must show student ID).
October 1 at 8:00pm
10322 – 83rd Avenue NW
The true story of 19th-century astronomer Henrietta Leavitt, Silent Sky by Lauren Gunderson, explores 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. Social progress, like scientific progress, can be hard to see when one is trapped among earthly complications. Henrietta Leavitt and her female peers believed in both, and their dedication has changed the way we understand both the heavens and the Earth.
