On Stage NOW!
Henrietta Leavitt, a 19th-century astronomer, begins work at the Harvard Observatory but she isn’t allowed to touch a telescope or express an original idea. Instead, she joins a group of women who chart the stars for a renowned astronomer who calculates projects in “girl hours.” As she 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.
Who We Are…
The Winchester Little Theatre is a non-profit, all-volunteer community theater organization housed in the old Pennsylvania Railroad freight station in downtown Winchester, Virginia. Along with the five main theatrical productions we put on each year, we offer a children’s program each summer, frequent Readers’ Theater events, and other events. We invite you to see what we have to offer as a patron, sponsor, or volunteer!
