Look to the stars!
The beloved Universal Pictures film October Sky is now a new musical. It was 1957, and Sputnik lights up the October sky over the small Appalachian mining town of Coalwood, West Virginia. Homer Hickam, the teenage son of a coal miner, is determined not to end up like generations before him.
Inspired by the world’s race to space, Homer and his buddies begin to light up the starry skies with their homemade rockets and dreams of glory. This rich and emotional story is for anyone who ever dreamed of something better and reached for the stars. From the writing team that brought you HERO, comes the premiere of their new musical OCTOBER SKY, produced in association with Universal Stage Productions (WICKED, BILLY ELLIOT, BRING IT ON).
Directed by Rachel Rockwell.
