5/16/2019 - The Rutledge Summer Series: A Universe of Stories Presents Sally Ride: Reach for the Stars

On Saturday, June 15, 2019 from 1-3pm, in the Kingsley Room, join us as our space-themed summer series continues with this in-character program about Sally Ride by Sheryl Faye Presents Historical Women.

Join us to welcome the return of Sheryl Faye as Sally Ride. In this new version of the program, Sheryl begins by portraying Sally Ride as an adult and takes the audience back to her childhood. She details Sally Ride’s love of tennis, and where she discovered science. Then continuing on with her studies at Stanford, and on to her becoming the youngest astronaut and the first American woman to go into space. She will also discuss Sally Ride’s role on the investigative boards of two shuttle disasters. Sally had a love of science and her passion for that took center stage when she created Sally Ride Science. Join Sheryl Faye with this look at a fascinating woman as she brings her to life right before your eyes.

Sheryl Faye started acting lessons at seven years old at the Harwich Jr. Theater in Cape Cod, and performed in her first show, Cinderella, at age nine. She earned a BFA in Acting from Emerson College in Boston and has traveled the United States as a full-time actress. She now has eight one-woman shows that tour throughout New England. She also writes and performs with StageCoach Improv, has voiced characters in Sony PlayStation games, and works on films, television, and theater throughout Boston and New York.
