LEGENDS of the SKIES theatre is performing a series of short plays highlighting the roles of Australian legends of aviation.

The not-for-profit community theatre gives audiences a “tasting platter” of stories of adventure, heroism, courage in adversity, and visionary people whose legacies have affected our lives.

Artistic director Maggie Morrison says the nine 10-minute stories are delivered with music, fun, drama and participation, as the audience is moved around the “theatre” to different backdrops enhanced by planes and placards.

The performances are at the National Australian Aviation Museum, 16 First St, Moorabbin “with many in the audience not even knowing that this little gem exists on our doorstep”, Ms Morrison said.

The event marks the anniversary of the Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation which was instrumental in Australia’s defence during World War II. It also has a display in the museum which is open 10am-4pm weekdays and 10am-5pm weekends.

The shows are at 8pm, Thursday 27 to Saturday 29 April and Thursday 4 May to Saturday 6 May.
