Show Description -
You'll fly back to 1986 and train with teachers Christa McAuliffe and Barbara Morgan as they prepare to go where no civilian has gone before - space! From the "vomit comet" to the interview room and the space shuttle itself, you'll explore the heights of friendship, what it means to take risks, and our place in space with this all-woman ensemble as they become teachers, astronauts, engineers, and more. Never shying from the ultimate fate that media, politics, and technical malfunctions portend, this feminist re-telling of the Challenger disaster story is a passionate love poem to those who dared to go, their families, and their vision for the world through movement, song, and memoir.

Producer bio -
Rocket Theatre Lab is an experimental devising collaborative. We strive to tell the untold stories from science in innovative new ways that inform and inspire. Our inaugural show, "Challenger" was originally devised by students at Central Washington University as a class and an experiment, and Rocket Theatre Lab is the natural extension of the powerful project that we began. We're devoted to continuing the creation of important works by using the same process and drawing upon local Seattle artists, dancers, scientists, storytellers, historians, actors, poets, writers, and more.
