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.

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)

Recipes Our Mothers Gave Us: The 2014 Glue Factory Project
Corningworks' Glue Factory Project presents an American, an Asian, & a French/Swede exploring societal recipes that season one's life. Lines we were fed, words we imbibed, the recipes … tried. 'RECIPES' for success, for failure, for nutrition, for starvation — the world intrudes, the ingredients reinterpreted. Created & performed by Beth Corning, with award-winning guest artists Maria Cheng & Francoise Fournier and music by Mary Ellen Childs. A complimentary "tasting event" with a local guest celebrity chef follows each performance.

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.
