See also

Point Park University’s Playhouse Jr. kicks off its 65th anniversary with productions of a musical take on the much-beloved children’s story, Kenneth Grahame, and the contemporary tale, Hush: An Interview with America.
Both shows run on weekends, May 10-25, at the Pittsburgh Playhouse (222 Craft Avenue); The Wind in the Willows is in the Rockwell Theatre; Hush is in the Studio Theatre.
Public performances will begin at 2 p.m., Saturday and Sunday, and 7 p.m., on Saturday. Tickets are $7 and can be purchased by calling the Pittsburgh Playhouse box office at 412.392.8000 or by visiting www.pittsburghplayhouse.com. Special performances for school field trips begin Wednesday, May 7, and run through Friday, May 30. For more information about field trips, call the Pittsburgh Playhouse box office at 412.392.8000.
With music and lyrics by Douglas Post, The Wind in the Willows is Kenneth Grahame’s classic Victorian tale of friendship and adventure set on the banks of the River Thames in England, featuring Mr. Toad, Badger, Ratty, Mole and other wonderful creatures.
James Still’s Hush: An Interview with America is a beautiful and surreal play about Maggie Parks, a pre-teen who can see things that others cannot. When her story becomes national news, she quickly learns about growing up, individuality, and the perils of celebrity.
To celebrate the 65th anniversary of Playhouse Jr., there will be a birthday party following the performances of The Wind in the Willows and Hush: An Interview with America on Saturday, May 10 at 2 p.m. in the Playhouse lobby. There will be crafts, mingling with the cast, and treats provided by Dunkin’ Donuts.
Save a Bavarian cream for me.
