World premiere Kennedy Center commission
While the countdown begins for the launch of Apollo 11 in 1969, three children of key NASA employees watch from different perspectives. As the historic flight unfolds, the kids dream a collective dream of looking back from the spaceship on the moon to see a majestic earthrise.
Lauren Gunderson’s immersive, original play commemorates the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, featuring music and lyrics by Kait Kerrigan and Brian Lowdermilk. Using projections, songs, and real audio and video footage of astronauts, interviews, and President Kennedy, EARTHRISE captures the breathtaking feat of the first lunar landing. As the kids dream of voyaging to the moon and back, their journey highlights the power of science and new perspectives on one another, Earth, and life.
Most enjoyed by age 5 and up. All patrons, regardless of age, must have a ticket.
