Every spring, the Philadelphia Children’s Festival comes to Penn’s Annenberg Center. While face painting, games and food trucks are available on the plaza, the thrust of the festival is exposing kids to performance art. Jugglers, dancers and mimes are common participants. Inside, on the Annenberg’s stages, child-centric theater and other performances rotate throughout the festival. This year, the Polobolus dancers will be offering a workshop with kids interpreting the book “Giraffes Can Dance” through movement. There will be a play entirely performed by shadows created by the stage set and actors. Air Play, another entirely original act, harnesses air flow and gravity to put on what looks like a fascinating show. Lots of other theater and musical events are happening, as well. This event runs May 2-4, so order tickets asap! For more information, click here.
