HIDDEN HEROES is based on the book Hidden Human Computers: The Black Women of NASA. By Sue Bradford Edwards and Duchess Harris. Published by ABDO Publishing, Minneapolis, MN. Copyright © 2017

“It doesn’t matter what you look like, what your size is, what your color is. You can be anything you want to, but you do have to work at it,” says Annie Easley’s mother to her young daughter. In the 1950’s and 60’s the black women of NASA fought against racial and gender discrimination for a place on the leading edge of math, science and technology. Be inspired this spring, as we tell the stories of how these women were influenced as young girls to eventually make critical contributions that launched US astronauts into space and returned them safely back to Earth.

With the help of new friends, Mary learns that with tender care and love, even the saddest, most forsaken things can bloom and thrive again with full life and beauty.

The Secret Garden’s script and lyrics are by the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Marsha Norman with music by Lucy Simon.

“This show, this cast, embodies what I love best about theatre, “said director Foy, “that special alchemy that happens when performers and material come together to make magic that is greater than the sum of its parts!”

If you could send a message out to the universe just to tell them our world was here, what would you say? What would you share?

Join Sandbox for an intimate aural and visual event celebrating NASA’s Voyager Golden Records. The Golden Record Project is part art installation, part performance, part interactive museum. It’s a search for connection, a hopeful call to other worlds, and a declaration that we are here.

In 1977, a NASA project led by astronomer Carl Sagan, and writer/producer Ann Druyan, launched time capsule discs they called Golden Records into deep space aboard two NASA Voyager satellites. President Jimmy Carter called them, “a present from a small, distant world, a token of our sounds, our science, our images, our music, our thoughts and our feelings. We are attempting to survive our time so we may live into yours.”

In Sandbox’s Golden Record Project, a multi-disciplinary collection of twin cities artists, along with our audiences, will explore the cultural, historical and current significance of the original Golden Records, and through this exploration, create a new record of our own.

How has our world changed? What would you send out today?
