This May, the EQT Children’s Theater Festival will celebrate 32 years of bringing kid-friendly theater performances from all over the world to our beloved city of Pittsburgh. We will be making our first official trip as a family of six – Mama and Evan got to take in some of the event in 2014 and loved what we experienced. We’re delighted to be partnering up with The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust to bring you the details on this year’s event!
2018 EQT Children’s Theater Festival
Our kiddos love getting to both watch and be part of the theater, usually impromptu in our living room! This spring, they’ll be getting the chance to experience theater in Pittsburgh’s Cultural District and Mama is pretty sure they’re going to be amazed. (PSST! Be sure to read all the way to the bottom to find out how you can WIN tickets!)
Our friends at Pittsburgh Cultural Trust shared some details with us and we hope that you’re as excited as we are!
