When She Had Wings
Theatre for Young Audiences, imagination stage,
A 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.
