Join us for a special night at the opera in support of our star, Cortez Mitchell!

MAKE YOUR CONNECTION
Eight complete strangers find they have more in common than they think. Stranded overnight at an airport, they meet a refugee forced to call the terminal his home and soon realize they need each other to get to their destinations. Inspired by a true story, Jonathan Dove’s Flight is a touching, charming, and deeply human dramedy all about what it means to make a real connection.
Performed in English with English captions projected above the stage.
Approximately two hours and 20 minutes with one intermission.
