In an effort to provide our theatre students with as many performance and design opportunities as possible, the theatre program offers a diverse schedule of performances throughout the year. These events typically take place in the Lindenwood and Emerson Black Box Theater's, and tickets are available at the Scheidegger Center Box Office. All Lindenwood University students, faculty, and staff, receive two complimentary tickets to any event produced by the School of Arts, Media, and Communications.

Silent Sky (Nov. 6-8)

Silent Sky (Nov. 6-8)

When Henrietta Leavitt 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.

Seven years later, this and other snippets of pop culture (sitcom plots, commercials, jingles, and pop songs) have become the live entertainment of a post-apocalyptic society sincerely trying to hold onto its past. Seventy-five years later, these are the myths and legends from which new forms of performance are created.
