PLOT (True Story):
The year is 1957. The United States and the Soviet Union are locked in a battle to see which country will be the first to place a satellite into orbit. Rocket Girl is the heretofore untold story of how Mary Sherman Morgan, a poor farm girl with only a high school diploma not only rose to become America’s first female rocket scientist, but provided the crucial technology that launched America into the Space Age.
A humorous, fast-paced re-telling of the story. Guaranteed to delight.
NOTE: Some actors may play multiple roles which is always fun for all!
The PLAYWRIGHT will be attending certain performances!
