The Aviatrix Announces '30 Days: 30 Women With Wings' Social Media Campaign

This week, the upcoming virtual musical The Aviatrix launched the social media campaign, "30 Days | 30 Women With Wings," intended to highlight and support the growing woman-identifying aviator community. For the entire month of January 2021, the hybrid theatre/film musical will use their social media to shout out current women pilots, flight attendants, engineers, mechanics, and more.

"As theatre makers stepping into the aviation community, we felt a great responsibility to take Harriet Quimby's story and use our show to establish a relationship with present-day female aviators," says Aviatrix Director Ellie Handel. "We've been welcomed into this community with open arms, and in return, we hope to highlight, support, and salute as many women as we can."

"We hope '30 Days | 30 Women With Wings' will build a bridge between the theatre and aviation communities," remarked Becky Abramowitz, the show's Associate Producer. "All we need are 30 submissions, but if we get more than 30, we'll keep posting them! The more we can use our platform as a basis for community, the better."

Are you interested in submitting to 30 Days | 30 Women With Wings? Contact The Aviatrix on Instagram at @AviatrixMusical, and send the following: a picture of you as an aviatrix, a short caption about yourself, and the answer to the question, 'Why did you start flying?'

The Aviatrix marks one of the very first musicals to be created, rehearsed, and fully produced during the pandemic. With the use of green screens and the latest recording software, the entire musical was filmed remotely without anyone ever meeting in the same room. The Aviatrix features a book and lyrics by Lily Dwoskin, music by Casey O'Neil, and direction by Ellie Handel. The show will premiere for four days only, January 28-31, exclusively on Vimeo on Demand.
