Sally Ride is glued to the classroom television as astronaut John Glenn blasts off into space. “I want to do that,” she quietly says to herself, only to be reminded that girls can’t be astronauts. They can’t be shortstop for the LA Dodgers either, another early aspiration, and she soon sets her sights on tennis, learning teamwork and good sportsmanship.

Her insatiable curiosity leads to a passion for science, and children will join in Sally’s discoveries through fun, interactive experiments, all of which they can do again at home. As she matures, she studies the wonders of the universe and finally, when girls can, she becomes America’s first woman astronaut and a passionate advocate for STEM. Her compelling story will ignite students’ curiosity and inspire them to dream, dare and develop their own gifts and talents to the fullest.

This show is the younger version and is only appropriate for audiences K – 5. Sheryl Faye attended Emerson College, in Boston, and received a BFA in Acting.

She currently stars in 11 one-woman shows throughout the Country, performing for a variety of organizations for children and adults. She has been the recipient of many awards for both stage and film and has performed all across the United States

All meetings are free and open to the public. For more information, please go to our website or contact Joyce at joycekel@aol.com.

“This program is supported in part by a 2023 grant from the Watertown Community Foundation.”
