Have you ever wondered what went through Amelia Earhart’s mind before she left on her final flight, or how soldiers in World War I coped with the horrors around them? What inspired Leonardo da Vinci’s drawings of flying machines? At the Museum of Flight, those moments come alive as part of Amazing Skies Theater.

Amazing Skies Theater is a multi-generational drama and living history troupe, comprised of volunteers from across the Puget Sound area. Members present living history programs at venues throughout the museum, including the Personal Courage Wing and the Red Barn.

Be part of the action.

We show our visitors the human side of history. To do this, we’ve engaged people who enjoy communicating with the public. Would you like to join us? No previous experience or theatre training is required – if you enjoy telling stories, you can be a successful living history presenter. We cover over 500 years of aviation history and a wide range of historical figures. No matter where your interests lie, there is something for you here.

Want to help behind the scenes?

Presenting living history is only one way to get involved with Amazing Skies. We have plenty of interesting projects involving costumes, research, writing, stage management, and more!

All you need is a free afternoon.

We plan our living history presentations around your schedule. Come in once a week, or once a month. Shifts are typically 2 or 3 hours. When you become a museum volunteer, you will receive everything you need to get started.
