Experience the thrill of man’s first powered flight as Rainbow Puppet Productions presents "The Wright Brothers." The show follows the brothers from early childhood until the moment they make their first powered flight in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina.

Orville and Wilbur were successful in part because they grew up in an environment that valued and encouraged reading and they had great faith in their own abilities. The show includes nine original musical numbers including "Open a Book" where Wilbur and Orville’s mother explain all the treasures that can be found within the pages of a book.
