PELLA, (11/13/2013)(readMedia)-- Freshmen Emma Simmons, a native of Davenport, and Dionne Riley, a native of Bettendorf, will participate in Central College's theatre production of "Legacy of Light".

"Legacy of Light" is a time-traveling comedy, which intertwines the stories of two female physicists from different eras. The legacies of Emilie du Chatelet, an 18th-century French scientist, and Olivia Hasting Brown, an astronomer in Princeton, N.J., collide in this play about the search for self-discovery, love, motherhood and scientific immortality.

Student and senior citizen tickets are $3, and admission is free with a Central ID. Tickets are available at the Maytag Information Booth, by calling 641-628-9000.
