Silent Sky Cast

A.G. Sweany (Henrietta Leavitt)
A.G. is delighted to be performing in their first production with Chamberlayne Actors Theatre. They previously acted in RIPPLES IN THE WATER with the Richmond Fringe Fest (though sadly, the festival was cancelled due to the events of early 2020…) and Vera in THE METAL CHILDREN at the Shafer Alliance Laboratory Theatre at VCU. They studied Theatre Performance for one year at VCU before shifting focus to a career in field biology and conservation. Off stage, you can find A.G staring at plants, birding, and making terrible jokes. They would like to thank the wonderful cast and crew for their playful professionalism, and their friends and partner for all the support.
