South Side Stories
Embedded in the concrete of South Side's city steps are testimonials of teenage mischief, steel mill toil, and townie haunts. This is a neighborhood where parking chairs mark territory and "paradise" is one turn off of 26th Street. Tami Dixon's play based on interviews with real Pittsburghers is an audience favorite. Matt Morrow directs.

Time: 3:00 pm

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)
