Tickets are $20 for adults, with discounts for seniors, students and CCT members, and may be purchased (for cash only) at the CCT box office prior to each show, which opens 45 minutes before curtain.  For reservations, email: eileencct@gmail.com; for more information or directions to CCT, visit our website: www.cct.vi.

This play tells the true story of 19th-century astronomer Henrietta Leavitt who 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 believe in both, and their dedication changed the way we understand both the heavens and Earth.

When Henrietta begins work at the Harvard Observatory in the early 1900s, she isn’t allowed to touch a telescope or express an original idea. Instead, she joins a group of women “computers” - charting the stars for a renowned astronomer who calculates projects in “girl hours” and has no time for the women’s probing theories. As Henrietta, in her free time, attempts to measure the light and distance of stars, she must also take measure of her life on Earth, trying to balance her dedication to science with family obligations and the possibility of love.

“…sheer magic [is] in Lauren Gunderson’s SILENT SKY…Gunderson [writes] economically and with bursts of smart, infectious humor.” —San Francisco Chronicle.

“…SILENT SKY could act as a simple reminder of what a pleasant, thought-provoking evening at the theater ought to look like. It’s a lively, funny, accessible play that’s alive with interesting ideas.” —ArtsAtl.com.

“[SILENT SKY] is a startling, entertaining true story of a brilliant, history-making woman—hitherto unknown to many of us.” —AtlantaInTown.com.

“Lauren Gunderson’s luminously beautiful play SILENT SKY is an intellectual epic told on an intimate scale. Bottom line: Heavenly.” —Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

This play is not recommended for children under age 13. All performances are held at the Caribbean Community Theatre at #18 Estate Orange Grove in Christiansted, St. Croix.

CCT productions are jointly supported by a grant from the Virgin Islands Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts. This show is also co-sponsored by Christiansted Apothecary Hall, Marshall & Sterling Insurance, Bush Tribe Eco Adventures, Crucian Gold, Caledonia Communication Corporation, and MOMosa Monday on WSTX AM 970.

Masks are no longer required for entry to CCT but are highly recommended for use during the show and throughout the theater.

 

CCT utilizes an HVAC air cooling system that delivers sterilized, HEPA-filtered outside air directly into the auditorium at a rate that forces the inside air to be expelled through roof vents, delivering fresh, clean, germ-free air to the building every two minutes.

CCT — bringing live theater to St. Croix for 38 years and counting!
