Cast: 2m. (4 m. or w.) In 1903, Orville and Wilbur Wright made history with their first sustained flight over Kitty Hawk, N.C., in their heavier-than-air contraption nicknamed the Wright Flyer, now recognized as the first airplane. Who were Orville and Wilbur Wright, and what motivated them to attempt such a momentous feat, which guaranteed them a page in American history books forever? This 20-minute show is ideal for schools and competitions where varied cast sizes are preferred.
