BREAKDOWN
Synopsis: Flying Lessons is a new musical about a young woman, Isabella, who along with her friends is given a school assignment to choose and research a historical figure. While struggling to decide who to talk about, Isabella is visited in a dream by Amelia Earhart and Frederick Douglass and learns first hand about their struggles, perseverance, and their overcoming adversity. With their help along with her teacher, friends, and mother Isabella learns about herself as well and her place in this world.
