What do the Wright Brothers, Thomas Edison, and Rosa Parks have in common? They’re masters of innovation — people who learn by doing, stand up for what they believe, and transform the world with their curiosity, problem-solving, and perseverance. This stage adaptation of the award-winning television show inspires young audiences with entertaining, educational stories of visionaries like Henry Ford, Bessie Coleman, Abigail Adams, and George Washington Carver. The performance highlights major turning points in the past and present that influenced the fields of science, technology, engineering, math, the environment, and social justice.
