8 ticket giveaway for the Pittsburgh Children's Museum!

We are fortunate enough to have one of the countries best children's museum right here in Pittsburgh!

The Pgh Momtourage is excited to be partering together with the Children's Museum of Pittsburgh this year in promoting not only their many great hands-on play areas, but their traveling exhibits as well.

We recently had a Momtourage playdate at the Museum and our kiddos had so much fun - so hard to drag them away!

You must check out their current traveling exhibit before it's gone!

We didn’t invent the wheel, we made it more fun in this new exhibit created by Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh. Climb and clamber through tires that are seven feet tall. Test your riding skills on scooters, balance bikes, rickshaws, pump cars and more. Build a wheel with wooden rims and bungee cords. Climb on a vintage Harley Chopper or use a treadmill to set tires spinning overhead. Construct a vehicle with roller blade wheels and magnetic blocks or take the wheel yourself and go on a virtual tour of the Museum in our Smart Car.

We were also pleasantly surprised to find a new exhibit - Makeshop.
MakeShop is a space for building and tinkering hands-on with old and new technologies, exciting projects and cutting-edge media. Do-it-yourself with electronics, sewing machines, animation stations or woodworking PLUS make alongside some of the coolest indie crafters, hackers and inventors in the city! Visit the MakeShop blog.


O course there is also the multimedia art Studio, the Garage,
Waterplay ( be prepared!), the Nursery and oh so much more!

DISNEY’S BEAUTY AND THE BEAST

PNC Broadway Across America – Pittsburgh
announces

DISNEY’S BEAUTY AND THE BEAST
The smash hit Broadway musical plays Pittsburgh’s Heinz Hall
April 3-8, 2012

Pittsburgh, PA: The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust and PNC Broadway Across America – Pittsburgh announce NETworks Presentations, LLC will bring the award-winning worldwide smash hit Broadway musical, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast to Heinz Hall from April 3 through April 8, 2012. This is a presentation of The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, Pittsburgh Symphony and Broadway Across America.
Disney’s Beauty and the Beast features the animated film’s Academy Award®-winning score with music by Alan Menken and lyrics by the late Howard Ashman, with additional songs with music by Alan Menken and lyrics by Tim Rice. The book is written by Linda Woolverton.
The original creators of the Broadway production are together again for this new touring production. The play is directed by Rob Roth and choreographed by Matt West, with costume design by Ann Hould-Ward (Tony Award® winner for her work on Disney’s Beauty and the Beast), lighting design by Natasha Katz, scenic design by Stanley A. Meyer, sound design by John Petrafesa, Jr., and music supervision by Michael Kosarin.
Director Rob Roth: “It has been wonderful to bring the entire original design team back together to work on this new production of Beauty and the Beast. As a director, it is rare to have the opportunity to revisit your work fifteen years later. Hopefully I’ve grown and developed as an artist, along with my collaborators, and we can bring 15 years of experience to this new production. We have remained very close as a team over the years of producing the show around the world, and it has been so much fun getting together to re-explore and re-invent the show for this new NETworks tour. The theme of ‘Beauty’ is about seeing past the exterior into the heart of someone, and this is reflected in the design for the show, which is about transparency and layers, seeing past one thing and into another.”

Disney’s Beauty and the Beast is the classic story of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped in a spell placed by an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and he will be transformed to his former self. But time is running out. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity.
Disney’s Beauty and the Beast has become an international sensation that has played to more than 35 million people worldwide in 21 countries.
Disney’s Beauty and the Beast performance dates and times are
Tuesday, April 3, 7:30 p.m.
Wednesday, April 4, 7:30 p.m.
