Wild Swan Theatre Has Announced A COUNTDOWN TO CODING TO THE MOON Pre-Launch Party
For forty years ago, the award-winning Wild Swan Theater has made and sustained theater that entertains, engages, and challenges audiences of all ages and abilities. In our fourth decade, we are tackling new themes and forging new partnerships that celebrate women and science.
A Countdown to Coding to the Moon Pre-Launch Party on Wednesday, February 5, 2020 from 5:30-7:30 at the Circ Bar in Ann Arbor offers a "first look and listen" of our upcoming production, Coding to the Moon: Margaret Hamilton and the Apollo Missions. Pre-Launch Party guests will enjoy selected scenes and music by playwright and director Hilary Cohen, composer Erik Santos, and the Wild Swan Theater Company. This new, original play features the brilliant work of the NASA scientist who led the team that wrote the computer code that guided the Apollo astronauts to the moon and back. By joining us at Countdown to Coding to the Moon, guests will help us bring a story to the stage that provides positive role models, challenges stereotypes, and inspires young girls and boys with a more inclusive and diverse picture of those who work in math and science.
Tickets for this exciting preview are $20 and include one drink ticket, light appetizers, and a Q &A session with the director, composer, and cast. Learn more and purchase tickets at https://wildswantheater.thundertix.com/.
