The Stars at Noon

By Emily Engeman

"I really would have liked to be the first woman in space... anyone who's spent as much time in the air as I have is bound to yearn to go a little bit farther..."

In this world premiere production, The Stars at Noon takes audiences back in time, to the Space Race, and tells the incredible true story of thirteen women pilots who gave everything for the dream of Spaceflight.

The Mercury 13 were a group of female pilots who passed the same series of astronaut tests as the Mercury 7, America's first astronauts. They were intelligent, experienced, passionate. They had all the "right stuff", but were the wrong sex.

Singing everything from Musical Theatre to Joni Mitchell to Jazz, Jerrie Cobb, Jackie Cochran and Eileen Collins - Emily Engeman tells their stories in a musical celebration of women who dared to reach for the stars.

Based on the true story of the Mercury 13 – a group of American female pilots in the 1960s who undertook and passed astronaut tests at great personal cost.
