Sally Ride and her astronaut friends take kids on the ride of their lives in this dynamic performance about space exploration! What can we learn about the issues facing our Earth from an astronaut’s unique perspective? Why are we so drawn to exploring space? Through music, audience participation, and narrative, this performance will ignite excitement for science and inspire questions. Using Sally’s example, students learn they can accomplish anything through curiosity, teamwork, and perseverance.
Founded in 2016, Curious Theatre Collective creates original educational theatre programming to tell the stories of remarkable women. Highly interactive performances encourage young audiences to use their own voices and movement to take part in the storytelling. Students leave feeling inspired to follow their curiosity, persevere through obstacles, and embrace teamwork. Curious Theatre Collective was founded by four women who together have decades of experience in acting, composing, directing, playwriting, teaching, and arts administration.
