Annie Jump and the Library of Heaven
A play for all audiences about finding your place in the universe and intelligent life in your hometown.The AU Theatre and Performance Design & Technology Departments present a student production of "Annie Jump and the Library of Heaven," written by Reina Hardy and directed by Visiting Instructor Eliza Beckwith.
Annie Jump is a 13-year-old science genius whose alien-obsessed father is the laughingstock of Strawberry, KS. One night in August, a meteor falls, and Annie meets Althea, an intergalactic supercomputer that manifests itself in the form of a mean girl with really great hair. Althea is here to help Annie take humanity from the earth to the stars, but being the Chosen One isn’t all glory. What is Althea hiding? And what will Annie have to sacrifice to fulfill her destiny?
Join us at the Stull Observatory for an outdoor performance; seating will be limited to maintain social distancing guidelines. More details about ticketing will be released at the beginning of the fall semester.
