They Promised Her the Moon

Many people know the history of the space race and the Mercury Seven. But few have ever heard the ill-fated story of Jerrie Cobb and the Mercury 13: a group of women who underwent the same rigorous psychological and physical astronaut training as their male counterparts but were ultimately denied entry into the space program based on their sex. "They Promised Her the Moon" is a highly theatrical, stunning look at the forces that keep women grounded, for better or worse.

Kent Thompson directs a cast of CU Boulder Department of Theatre & Dance's talented student performers. Don't wait to purchase tickets! Due to limited seating, tickets sell fast. But in the intimate Loft Theatre, every audience member gets a front row experience to this performance.

"They Promised Her the Moon" is a 2021-22 Roe Green Production. The Department of Theatre & Dance is grateful to donor Roe Green. The Roe Green Visiting Theatre Artist fund allows them to invite a professional guest artist to campus each year to work with students. The department welcomes Kent Thompson as this year's Roe Green Visiting Artist.

"They Promised Her the Moon" was developed and produced by Miranda Theatre Company in 2017. "They Promised Her the Moon" was developed at TheatreWorks Silicon Valley as part of their New Works Festival. "They Promised Her the Moon" received its West Coast premiere on April 11, 2019 at The Old Globe, Barry Edelstein, Erna Finci Viterbi Artistic Director, and Timothy J. Shields, Managing Director

They Promised Her the Moon

Apr 15-24, 2022

They Promised Her the Moon

Many people know the history of the space race and the Mercury Seven. But few have ever heard the ill-fated story of Jerrie Cobb and the Mercury 13: a group of women who underwent the same rigorous psychological and physical astronaut training as their male counterparts but were ultimately denied entry into the space program based on their sex. "They Promised Her the Moon" is a highly theatrical, stunning look at the forces that keep women grounded, for better or worse.

Kent Thompson directs a cast of CU Boulder Department of Theatre & Dance's talented student performers. Don't wait to purchase tickets! Due to limited seating, tickets sell fast. But in the intimate Loft Theatre, every audience member gets a front row experience to this performance.

"They Promised Her the Moon" is a 2021-22 Roe Green Production. The Department of Theatre & Dance is grateful to donor Roe Green. The Roe Green Visiting Theatre Artist fund allows them to invite a professional guest artist to campus each year to work with students. The department welcomes Kent Thompson as this year's Roe Green Visiting Artist.

"They Promised Her the Moon" was developed and produced by Miranda Theatre Company in 2017. "They Promised Her the Moon" was developed at TheatreWorks Silicon Valley as part of their New Works Festival. "They Promised Her the Moon" received its West Coast premiere on April 11, 2019 at The Old Globe, Barry Edelstein, Erna Finci Viterbi Artistic Director, and Timothy J. Shields, Managing Director
