Developed in partnership with Washington Women in Trades, the performance will be held in the museum’s William M. Allen Theater and features the story of a young girl named Rosie who begins working at Boeing after her brother joins the army during a period of time when women were first joining the workforce. Afterward, guests are invited to attend a Q&A with the creative team and several local real-life “Rosies.”
Producing director Bill Berry explained:
“For so many of these children, this performance is the first experience they’ve ever had with musical theater. The impact theater and the arts have on a child’s development is irreplaceable, and with the cuts we’re seeing in arts education, this program has become more important every year.”
The performance is free for all Museum of Flight ticket-holders.
