Almost Astronauts

A Musical Theater Production presented by Auburn Public Studio

Our play is based on the story of the Mercury 13, a group of American women who underwent some of the same testing as the male astronauts who were selected by NASA and became known as the Mercury 7. Though the women largely passed the first phase of testing with flying colors, ultimately they were not part of NASA’s astronaut program, never flew in space and never had the opportunity to meet as a group. This play is our attempt to share part of their story with all of you.
