"...regardless of your age, this visually appealing, refreshing tale, will put you in a sunny mood, whether you're 8 or 80."
- Aaron Krause, Florida Theatre On Stage

"When She Had Wings is attractive whimsy for the whole family!”
- Hap Erstein, Palm Beach ArtsPaper

A story told in sound, movement, and words about 9-year-old B - just plain “B”, like the letter - who knows that before she could walk, she could fly. Desperate to return to the sky before her 10th birthday weighs her down for good, B encounters a mysterious stranger, who seems to have fallen out of a summer storm directly into B’s treehouse. Could this possibly be her hero, Amelia Earhart? Together they must help each other remember how to fly … literally and metaphorically.
