This production based on Amelia’s life and legacy as one of the most famous female aviators in history is taking off this fall. You may think you know her story, but you haven’t seen anything yet!
A curious reporter begins to uncover the story of Amelia Earhart’s mysterious disappearance, and what he finds along the way pieces together the thrilling life story of one of America’s most fascinating heroines. Witness Amelia’s journey inside and out of the cockpit as stories of her life, love, ambition, and determination come to light onstage. Amelia’s perseverance against all odds as she chases her dreams is an inspiration for young hearts yearning to reach beyond the horizon in the pursuit of excellence. Just as the world was inspired by one young woman’s courage to dare the impossible, this show will inspire young audiences to undertake their biggest, wildest dreams.
