Determined Spirit: The Story of Amelia Earhart, A One - Woman Show
Aviator Amelia Earhart was a woman of inspiring courage and incredible zest for life. In her lifetime she accomplished many amazing feats, including: becoming the first woman to fly across the Atlantic Ocean, the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans and the first woman to fly solo from Los Angeles to Mexico and Mexico to Newark. Before her mysterious disappearance somewhere over the Pacific Ocean on her ill-fated 1937 round the world flight, she had established herself as more than just a great aviator; she was a revered pioneer for women with a determined spirit to seize every opportunity life granted her. Determined Spirit: The Story of Amelia Earhart is a chance to know Amelia Earhart in a true and personal way and perhaps find yourself touched by her enduring message of bravery in pursuit of dreams.
During the 40 minute performance, Amelia will recall the events of her life from her earliest years until her infamous final flight. Audiences will meet the aviator America called “Lady Lindy” and discover a woman of integrity, humor, and inspiring courage.
