November 12-17th, the Monsignor Doyle Arts Department proudly presents a new production based on the events surrounding the skyjacking of Northwest Airlines Flight 305 in 1971 and the mystery of D.B. Cooper.
“D. B. Cooper is an unidentified man who hijacked a commercial flight in the airspace between Portland, Oregon, and Seattle, Washington, on the afternoon of Wednesday, November 24, 1971. He extorted $200,000 in ransom (equivalent to $1,240,000 in 2018) and parachuted to an uncertain fate. Despite an extensive manhunt and protracted FBI investigation, the perpetrator has never been located or identified. It remains the only unsolved case of air piracy in commercial aviation history.” – wikipedia
“Skyjacker: The True Legends of D.B. Cooper”, written and directed by Doyle’s very own Mr. Kearns, is an immersive and interactive theatrical experience. The show begins by introducing three possible suspects who may have been the infamous DB Cooper. Then, the audience will join flight 305 and experience the flight as it may have happened. In the end, the audience will vote by secret ballot as which of the suspects was DB Cooper. The ending of the show then, is decided by the audience itself.
The 19 member cast of “Skyjacker: The True Legends of D.B. Cooper” has worked incredibly hard for the last two months on both script and improvisation to prepare this theatrical experience. They hope to see you all on board!
