Can you believe it?
We’re drawing near to the close of this season’s children’s theater series put on by the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust. I know our family has had an amazing time exploring the upside-down world of Leo, the messages of acceptance and friendship in Your Alien, and the mad talent that was on display at The Hip Hop Nutcracker.
But do not worry–the season isn’t over yet! We’ve still got one more show for the age 3+ crowd in the Citizens Bank Children’s Theater Series and then another in for families with kids ages 7+ in the EQT Bridge Theater Series.
Today’s ticket giveaway is for the 3+ crowd.
Emily Brown and the Thing
Emily Brown and the Thing is a beloved children’s book. If you really want to get the kiddos excited for the show, you can get a copy of the book to introduce to your home library prior to attending.
Here’s everything you’ll need to know about the show, including a preview from Tall Stories, the company who will be performing in Pittsburgh on May 16-19, 2019 at the August Wilson Center. View available seating here.
Something monstrous is keeping Emily Brown awake…
One evening, Emily Brown and her old grey rabbit Stanley hear a Thing crying outside their window. He just can’t get to sleep. Emily Brown and Stanley set off on incredible adventures to the Dark and Scary Wood, the Whirling Wastes and beyond, to find the Thing’s cuddly, his bedtime milk and his medicine… But nothing seems to help him settle. What’s really troubling the Thing–and will anyone ever get to sleep? Find out in this magical, musical show based on the much-loved book by Cressida Cowell (writer of ‘How to Train your Dragon’) and Neal Layton.
Content Information: Best for ages 3+ This show features acting, puppetry, music, and movement. The theater will be darkened for the performance with light and movement occurring on stage.
I’m making this one a little longer for you guys as it’s the last one for this age group (though be sure to check back next week for the 7+ age bracket!) This one will be running through May 6, 2019, so be sure to use the extra time to rack up extra entries!
The prize, by the way, is four (4) tickets to any one of the available showings of Emily Brown and the Thing with the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust between May 16 and May 19, 2019. You’ll get to pick which one.
Best of luck! Tell your friends!
