Fun for the little ones

The Philadelphia International Children’s Festival returns to the Annenberg Center for the 2015 season, held May 7-9. The Festival attracts more than 10,000 children and families annually, and this year’s lineup includes performances that run the gamut from dance and live music to acrobatic tricks and dramatic theater.

On the 2015 schedule will be Pilobolus Dance Theater, a renowned dance troupe that uses gymnastics, technology, and playful props in their work; the Catherine Wheels Theatre Company, which will present the play “Lifeboat”; Daniel Bernard Roumain, who will perform the show, “Orchestra of Life,” a tribute to Bob Marley; Playing By Air, which is a mix of music, juggling, and circus; Circo Comedia, which includes acrobatic tricks, students, and magic; and a screening of the movie “Watermelon Magic.” Tickets to the Festival include admission to the FUN ZONE, which features interactive performances and activities on the Annenberg Center’s outdoor plaza.
