Decision Height, Student Play
December 16th, 2017 15:00pm
The National Museum of the Pacific War will welcome students from Boerne High School on December 16th at 3:00 pm in the Admiral Nimitz Museum Ballroom. They will perform their Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival winning play Decision Height.
Decision Height” tells the story of six Women’s Air Force Service Pilots who trained in Sweetwater Texas to fly aircraft during World War II. Their duties included transporting planes, as well as serving as targets for live ammunition training. Their contributions helped free male pilots for active combat during the war. Under-recognized for their service and experiencing personal struggles, the play explores the deep bonds and friendships formed by these women. With a cast of nine vibrant female characters, Decision Height offers a look into an under-recognized subset of American heroes and revises history into HERSTORY.
This play is free and open to the public. The play is expected to last one hour. For more information please visit www.pacificwarmuseum.org or call 830-997-8600.
