The Pittsburgh International Children's Festival

(From Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Monday, February 16, 2009)

The Pittsburgh International Children's Festival, presented by The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, will host the U.S. premieres of four productions and will offer one more show than last year when the 23rd annual event takes place May 13-17 at sites throughout Oakland.

The festival will feature a production from Spain:
• "Kraft" by Bambalina (Spain) at Bellefield Hall Auditorium.
Kraft paper becomes an instrument of nature, creating the sounds of crashing waves, rustling leaves and the crackling of flames in a world where an object's conventional use is transformed into something magical in a lesson on recycling.

The festival grounds -- on the University of Pittsburgh's Cathedral of Learning lawn, Schenley Plaza and the Carnegie Library Bosque -- are free to the public and will complement the featured performances with hands-on cultural and educational activities, roving artists, booths and exhibitors. The Target Community Stage returns this year as the center of outdoor festival activities.
Single performance tickets are $8, with discounts for multiple shows. Special rates are available for school groups and groups of 10 or more. Advance tickets can be purchased by calling 412-456-6666 or by visiting pghkids.org or the Box Office at Theater Square.
