Audition Information for

The Fastest Woman Alive

by Karen Sunde

Directed by Alaina Smith

Thursday, August 28 from 7-10 p.m.

Black Box Theatre

Plot: “The need for speed” kept the unrivaled Jackie Cochran soaring through life at a supersonic rate. She was the first woman to break the sound barrier; she battled the military to create WASP (Women Airforce Service Pilots), 1,000 women who risked their lives flying more than 75-million miles while testing and ferrying every military aircraft flown in World War II. She was named Business Woman of the Year, became a soul-mate to both Amelia Earhart and Chuck Yeager, and to this day she holds more flight records than any man or woman who ever lived. Her story will shake up the Black Box Theatre. Plot Details
