Hickam’s book adapted into an award winner, Huntsville Times

“The “Rocket Boys” story is really going to be rocking thanks to a group of directors and producers from New York and New Jersey, who decided to adapt local author Homer Hickam’s best seller, “Rocket Boys” (made into the hit movie “October Sky”) to the stage. The play is called “Rocket Boys, the Musical” and producers hope to eventually get it on Broadway. It’s already received numerous awards, including being one of three to receive the Academy for New Musical Theatre’s Search for New Musicals Award in Los Angeles and the ASCAP/Disney Musical Theatre Workshop in New York.”
