Rosie Revere, Engineer

Rosie may seem quiet during the day, but at night she's a brilliant inventor of gizmos and gadgets who dreams of becoming a great enginee.  When her great-great-aunt Rose (Rose the Riveter) comes for a visit and mentions her one unfinished goal--to fly--Rosie sets to work building a contraption to make her aunt's dream come true.  In the process, Rosie learns the only real failure for an inventor is giving up.  (ALL PERFORMANCES OF ROSIE REVERE - SOLD OUT).
