Lee Theatre to Present Virtual Performance


Although the coronavirus has limited Lee University Theatre’s ability to perform with an in-person audience this semester, it will hold a livestream virtual performance, “When She Had Wings,” beginning Friday, Oct. 9 at 7:30 p.m. Additional shows will be held October 10, 16 and 17 at 7:30 p.m.

“When She Had Wings” tells the story of B, a girl who desperately wishes she could fly, and A, a creature who seems to fall out of the sky, but just might be a long-lost historical figure. While helping A find her path, B is able to move past her own roadblocks and discover the beauty of flights of fancy. The story is about the power of imagination and belief and is designed to entertain the whole family.

“We are excited to bring this magical story to life on stage and bring it to our audiences via livestream,” said Dr. Christine Williams, professor of theatre. “It does what all great theatre should do – spurs the imagination and makes us feel connected to those around us.”

According to Williams, this show was chosen specifically because actors could rehearse and produce it with safety protocols in place, like social distancing and mask use. The costume designer, Khristina Scoggins, created unique ways to integrate masks into the costumes of the show.

Tickets are $5 for one streaming ticket or $10 for multiple people viewing on one device. Tickets can be purchased online at showclix.com/event/when-she-had-wings.
