AWOL to see Hidden Figures 1/14

AWOL (Adventurous Women Out Late) to see Hidden Figures

Sat, Jan 14 | Carpool from church 6:30pm or meet at theater (TBA).

As the United States raced against Russia to put a man in space, NASA found untapped talent in a group of African-American female mathematicians that served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in U.S. history. Based on the true life stories of three of these women, “human computers,” we follow them as they rose the ranks of NASA specifically tasked with calculating the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, and his safe return. Dorothy Vaughn, Mary Jackson, and Katherine Johnson crossed all gender, race, and professional lines while their brilliance and desire to dream big, beyond anything ever accomplished before by the human race, firmly cemented them in U.S. history as true American heroes.

Directed by Kasey Cox

Assisted by Danny Austin

Steel Magnolias is the poignant story of a close-knit group of deeply-Southern women. The talk of the town is the upcoming wedding of Shelby, the beautiful and fragile daughter of M’Lynn, an intelligent, compassionate career woman.  Truvy owns the beauty parlor which is the female epicenter of the town. Regular customers keep the banter and bickering going as the group gathers each week at Truvy’s. It’s here that they find comfort and strength in each other while they discuss relationships and loneliness, happiness and loss. A heartwarming, hilarious, and bitter-sweet story about the special bond that enables these women to find their ways past life’s obstacles using humor, compassion, love…and a lot of hairspray.
