Susan Classen, and Wendy Sue Knecht

The Invisible Theatre continues its acclaimed 52nd season with “Come Fly With Me!”—a performance in which Wendy Sue Knecht shares her life as a Pan Am flight attendant in a joyous afternoon celebrating Pan Am, the people, the places and the glory days of aviation, held at 2pm on both March 2 and 3. These special performances are planned as “Fun-Raisers” with proceeds benefiting the nonprofit theatre.

Knecht always had a passion for travel, even as a little girl. After pursuing her degree at the University of Arizona, she became a flight attendant for the world’s most iconic airline, Pan Am. Her rich and amazing career included many humorous adventures, observations and life lessons. Her story is a mix of hilarious, seat gripping moments and inspiring tales of heroism. A love of writing compelled her to share her story of an era like no other in aviation history.

In addition to her long career in travel, Knecht also became an inventor, on-air spokesperson and product entrepreneur, appearing on QVC and other networks hundreds of times for the line of travel bags and other products she designed.

The show runs for 80 minutes without an intermission and is rated PG. VIP seating for this special event is $150 per person and includes “First Class” seating, a reception and a signed copy of Knecht’s award-winning book, Life, Love and Hijacking – My Pan Am Memoir. Companion tickets are $100 and general admission is $40.
