When asked how to create plays for children, Constantin Stanislavski, the great master of Russian drama reportedly replied: “The same as for adults, only better.” Why does children’s theater need to better?  For one thing, children make up the most demanding audience, requiring perfect honesty.  If they don’t like what they are seeing, there won’t be any polite applause.  Instead, there will be a lot of extra wiggling, loud whispering, and multiple trips to the bathroom. 

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....


Follow the heartwarming and comic adventures of Zelda the swan, who thinks she's a duck when she's not. Unwanted by the duck family who hatched her egg, Zelda leaves their pond to try to find a place for herself in the world. She meets the beautiful and stately Hortense, Queen of the Swans, who takes a mysterious liking to her, Timothy Turkey, the clumsiest, wackiest bird in the forest, who wants to be anything but a turkey; and a cunning hunter, whose favorite pastime is eating birds.Through charming and beautiful songs, comedic dances, and exciting adventures, children are taken on an odyssey of hope and friendship where growth is to be prized, not feared. As Zelda learns more about the world, she learns more about herself, and by the end of the play she is truly proud to be who she really is. This delightful musical is perfect for ages 3 and up.

Tickets are $12 for Adults and $8 for Children under 12.
