Nancy Hasty’s one woman show, “The Flight of Jackie Cochran,” tells the story of a brilliantly gifted – though mostly forgotten – aviatrix and her improbable mystifying life. With only a second grade education, Jackie was the recipient of honorary doctorates; growing up barefoot in a flour sack, she was later named one of the “Ten Best Dressed Women in America;” born in obscurity and poverty in the Florida backwoods, she became a friend to presidents and royalty. Her life also a life of dazzling accomplishments and many firsts: the first woman to break the sound barrier, fly a bomber, and later a jet, over the ocean; make a blind instrument landing, take off and land on an aircraft carrier. She commanded the WASPs in World War II and set more speed, distance and altitude records than anyone, man or woman, in the history of aviation. She was also beautiful, and made other women beautiful too. Her cosmetics company, Wings to Beauty, was so successful she was hailed as Business Woman of the Year – twice — and she lectured at Harvard.
Nancy’s previous plays have been produced in NYC in numerous theaters, including off-Broadway and Broadway, as well as internationally. She has toured cross-country with her one woman show, “Florida Girls,” and a Broadway production of another of her plays is currently in the works.
All proceeds from the show are being donated to the Scranton Cultural Center to assist in their building restoration and ongoing operation. Doors will open at 6 pm and the show will start at 7pm!

Johnny is a big fan of school but that all changes when the new kid, Gabe arrives. Gabe doesn’t speak any English, and that doesn’t stop Johnny from going out of his way to be unkind. What will Johnny do when Gabe starts to make new friends? Will he join in the fun of making a new friend or turn the other way?
