Aladdin's Luck

The clever street urchin Aladdin falls madly for the Princess Leilah when they meet by chance at the bazaar. Determined to impress her, he embarks on a search for fortune and instead finds a dingy oil lamp. But this is no ordinary lamp; it houses a magical genie who helps Aladdin masquerade as a grand emir to win the Princesses’ hand. Leilah, however, fell for the street urchin, not the grand emir. Frustrated that Aladdin won’t admit who he really is, she gives the lamp to an unscrupulous magician and ends up his prisoner. Aladdin must travel across the desert to rescue her by doing the thing that scares him the most…being himself.  WRitten by Janet Stanford, this wonderful play with music is perfect for all ages.

Opens April 6 through May 11, 2019

TICKETING POLICY CHANGE

We have a change in our ticketing policy.  In order to alleviate the potential for cancelling a show at the last minute, tickets purchased in advance will be at a 20%-35% discount from tickets purchased at the door. Although we prefer to offer our patrons the flexibility of making last minute plans, we find ourselves in the position too frequently of having to disappoint those very same patrons with a cancelled performance.  Thank you for your understanding.





Theatre for Young Audiences tickets at the door will now be $15/Adults and $10/children under 12.


Cabaret Series tickets at the door will now be $30.


If You Give a Mouse a Cookie

When a generous boy shares a cookie with a hungry mouse, it is the beginning of a chain of events that keeps the boy busy all day long, and might keep him busy for days to come. Based on the award winning book by Laura Joffee Numeroff and Felicia Bond, this delightful show is perfect for ages 3 and up.

Opening February 2 through March 9, 2019. Every Saturday at 10am and 1pm.

TICKETS ARE NOW ON SALE!!!






This beautiful show by Lizzie Allen returns to Pittsburgh again this holiday season! That idyllic other world of make believe is explored with evident relish in this two hander for children aged 3 to 6. It's an intimate show, and as resourceful and imaginative as small children themselves can be when they're off in a world of their own....the adventure begins looking for Florrie and Todd's ideal home. Lizzie Allen's play for the under-sixes is rather like Beckett for beginners, a wonderfully concrete and yet infinitely playful meditation on the meaning of home. When bag lady Florrie enquires, ‘Where are we?’ and Todd replies, ‘We are here’, it is a triumphant reminder of their survival against the odds....





Don't Count Your Chickens Until They Cry Wolf

Aesop was never so charming as in Don't Count Your Chickens Until They Cry Wolf, a tour de force of Aesop's world. This musical, with optional participation elements, involves every age in tuneful pleasure, making audiences into actors. Filled with ancient wisdom and today's wit, clever lyrics and singable modern music, it is an irresistible attraction confected by Carol Lynn Pearson and J.A.C. Redford. Highlights include: the famous race of tortoise and hare ("You got to keep on keeping on"); a soft-shoe number by the fox ("Flatter them, and you'll walk away with the cheese"); a rousing peasant dance in the bundle of sticks ("The trick is to stick together"); a chorus line of sheep ("If he's got fleece but the wrong kind of nose, maybe he's simply a wolf in sheep's clothes").

Opens October 25 through November 23, 2109

The Imaginators

Using moving boxes and other objects found in the garage, Nina takes an eager Tim and a reluctant Anne on a great make-believe adventure. The three battle the child-eating monster, the Mooklecratz. The children discover their own strengths, the value of cooperation and the unlimited power of their imaginations as they figure out how to defeat the beast  Written by Dwayne Hartford, this imaginitive tale is perfect for all ages.

Opens September 7 through October 12, 2019

Sleeping Beauty


In this twist on the beloved fairy tale, a traditional storyteller reading from his all too well known book of Sleeping Beauty is quickly usurped by the story's feisty villain, the evil Griselda.  With a magical spell, she literally turns back the hands of time to show what really happened to "Sleeping Betty." Fortunately, two good fairies and a magical frog help set the story straight, and make sure eveyone lives happily ever after.

"A lot of creative twists and turns... Sleeping Beauty is a keeper for the younger crowd, a nice romp through fairytale land that offers plenty of fun without all the sugar that most similar productions throw in."  Sun Gazette (Virginia)


Opens June 15 through July 27. NO SHOW on June 22.
