SEATTLE, April 11, 2011--Seattle's acclaimed 5th Avenue Theatre brings its Adventure Musical Theatre Touring Company (AMT) to The Museum of Flight for a special performance of a new musical, "Rosie the Riveter," on April 23 at 2 p.m. The show tells the story of the heroic women in the World War II workforce who built the airplanes that helped win the war, known collectively as "Rosie the Riveters." AMT musicals are written by Northwest writers and composers - many with Broadway credits - and are created to entertain and spur the imagination with song, dance and stories. There will be a question and answer session with former Rosies after the performance, followed by an autograph session with them in the Museum lobby.
