SEATTLE, March 19, 2018--On April 5 at 6 p.m., the 5th Avenue Theatre's Adventure Musical Theatre Touring Company presents "Rosie the Riveter," a fast, funny and stirring family musical about the women who made the nation's airplanes during World War II. The show will be part of the Museum's Free First Thursday programs from 5 - 9 p.m. Admission is free, seating is on a first-come, first-served basis, and a couple of the bombers Rosie made are always on display at the Museum.

Rosie the Riveter

During World War II, manufacturing plants that produced munitions and war supplies were in desperate need of workers. As many men were off at war, women, who typically worked in other trades or in the home, were asked to join the factory workforce to help the U.S. with the increasing demand of supplies. "Rosie the Riveter" became a cultural icon representing the female worker--loyal, efficient, and patriotic. The 5th Avenue's fun and inspirational musical shows the can-do spirit of the Pacific Northwest in the 1940s. Follow the adventures of young Rosie as she goes to work in a Seattle aircraft manufacturing plant to assist with the war effort and pursue her own dreams.
