ABOUT THE SHOW: Bright Star is the story of one woman at two different points in her life: the first, when she is a wild young thing growing up barefoot and carefree in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina; the second, when she is a well-to-do magazine editor in Asheville, 22 years later. Her story is inevitably woven with that of an idealistic young man named Billy, with whom she shares a mysterious connection.

Based on the true story of Henrietta Leavitt, an early 20th century astronomer hampered in her passions because she was born into an age where women didn’t pursue such things.

Peter Shaw (Supporting): Male, 30-40
the head astronomer’s apprentice; reserved; his views have never really been challenged prior to the events of the play. He is in love with Henrietta, as she is with him.
Annie Cannon (Supporting): Female, 30-50

Willamina Fleming (Supporting): Female, 40-65
