Amelia Lives invites the audience to look into the world of Amelia Earhart through events, stories, letters and quotes from the aviatrix who was the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. Amelia was 39 when she disappeared over the Pacific Ocean in 1937, while trying to navigate the globe.

The set for Amelia Lives is in the basic shape of an airplane, in which Emily Greco as Amelia moves about and pulls out hidden props to create new environments on stage. She transforms Amelia into a 6-year-old child, a teenager, a young woman, and finally, the pilot on her last flight. This one woman play dresses Emily in period costumes that resemble clothing Amelia wore for her last flight, a checkered shirt and khaki pants.
Emily Greco has appeared in many Portola Valley Theatre Conservatory productions, including roles as Puah in Puah's Midlife Crisis, Hodel in "Fiddler on the Roof, and Peter in Peter Pan. She has performed Amelia Lives to rave reviews at the 15th annual theater festival at Notre Dame de Namur and the Portola Valley Theatre Conservatory.
The play was written by Laura Annawyn Shamas and directed by local director Karen Byrnes.
