Inspired by the life and mystery of Amelia Earhart, nine-year-old girl named 'B' fantasizes about flying in a makeshift cockpit she has built in a tree. The morning after a storm, B awakes to find 'A', a peculiar, elderly woman who “squawks” rather than talks, sharing her airplane. B believes that A is actually her heroine Amelia Earhart, who was never seen again after taking off across the Pacific Ocean. In exchange for B helping A finish her famous last flight, A promises B that she can and will fly! This story about using your imagination and making the impossible possible combines live sound and puppetry to create striking images and theatrical magic. Perfect for young adventurers and the young at heart. TICKETS>>
