Weston Cultural Council presents Delvena Theatre Company’s “Where ‘Ya Been, Amelia?” at the Weston Community Center on Saturday, December 11, at 1:00 PM.

The Delvena Theatre Company will be presenting Where Ya Been, Amelia? at the Weston Community Center, 20 Alphabet Lane, Weston, on Saturday, December 11, at 1:00 PM.

Amelia Earhart disappeared over the Pacific Ocean while attempting to make a circum-navigational flight of the globe in 1937. Fascination with her life continues today with many theories as to her disappearance. This edutainment production, which has been incorporated into a 1940’s radio show – complete with commercials – offers three creative scenarios as to what may have happened to Amelia, as well as a dramatic overview of her life. At the show’s conclusion, audience members are encouraged to enter into discussion regarding Amelia Earhart’s life and mysterious disappearance. The show, written by Fran Baron and directed by Joseph Zamparelli, Jr., will feature Lynne Moulton and Fran Baron in multiple roles.

The Delvena Theatre Company was founded in 1992 and has performed at various venues, most often at the Boston Center for the Arts.  The company was nominated for five Independent Reviewers of New England awards.  Its production of ‘Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?’ was on Theatre Mirror’s Best List for acting, directing and production.  Presentations of ‘Anna Weiss’ and ‘Beyond Therapy’ were included on Theatre Mirror’s best play list and ‘Blue Heart’ was placed on Aisle Say’s best list.

Where ‘Ya Been, Amelia? is supported in part by a grant from the Weston Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency. For more information, contact the Council on Aging at (781) 893-0154.
