Home from Kitty Hawk
May 5 – June 13, 2014
It’s one thing to read about the thrill of the Wright brothers’ first flight. It’s quite another to have Wilbur and Orville tell you about it themselves. Three actors step into the roles of Orville, Wilbur and their sister, Katharine. From the porch of the Wright family home — now in Greenfield Village — they fascinate your students with the dramatic tale of their experiments, struggles and, finally, the triumph of their first flights on December 17, 1903.
