Stuck
It all began when Floyd got his kite stuck in a tree... He throws his shoe to shift it, but that gets stuck too. So he throws his other shoe and that gets stuck along with…the cat, a ladder, a pot of paint, the kitchen sink, an orangutan and a whale, among other things! With original music and audience participation, this new story by Oliver Jeffers is produced by the team behind Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus and The Way Back Home. (50 minutes, ages 3-10)

Wicked
When last seen Pittsburgh in 2011, Wicked broke box office records and sold out in record time. Winner of 35 major awards, including a Grammy and three Tony Awards, Wicked is Broadway's biggest blockbuster, a cultural phenomenon and was just named "the defining musical of the decade" by The New York Times. Long before Dorothy arrives in Munchkinland, two girls meet in the land of Oz. One - born with emerald green skin - is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. See how they became the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good.
