When She Had Wings

Buy ticketsBy Suzan Zeder

March 17 – April 2, 2017
Gaddy-Goodwin Teaching Theatre (General Admission Seating)

Part of the 2016-2017 Youth Series.

When She Had Wings is presented with support from PNC


Fairy Tale. A young girl dreams about taking flight in the makeshift airplane that she has built in her backyard. After a huge storm, she finds an elderly woman who looks and sounds like a bird, but who just might be Amelia Earhart. The mysterious lady has taken up residence in the cockpit. Using live sound and puppetry, this play reminds us that, with a little imagination, anything is possible.

Director: Patrick Torres
