About This Show

MERCURY is the courageous story of Geraldyn Cobb, who fought for her right to join NASA and travel into space before Alan Shepard or John Glenn ever did. This incredibly shy woman did not back down, and took her fight all the way to Congress. Join us for a journey to the moon and back!

about the artist

SABINA PETRA is an actor, singer and composer, and MERCURY is her first full-length musical. At the age of nineteen her biggest dream was to become an astronaut, but joining NASA as a citizen from The Netherlands seemed impossible, so she chose to act like one instead. Favorite performances include: Beauty and the Beast (Mrs. Potts), Billy Elliot (Dead Mum), Forest Boy (NYMF – Individual Performance Award), Memorare (Sister Maria Celeste), Convicted (Bound For Broadway Festival), Homicide City (ID Channel) and playing Jerrie Cobb in Mysteries At The Museum (Travel Channel).
