Books Come Alive!

This unique library-based program provides musical dramatizations of best-loved children’s books and brings them to life with professional theatre artists, colorful costumes, props and incredible story telling techniques. The result is an exciting, professionally produced performance that sparks interest in books, stimulates imagination and encourages reading. Currently the program has expanded and now serves libraries in Westmoreland, Fayette, and Allegheny Counties. Performances utilize the talent of Stage Right! students and are featured as part of the summer reading program with Hempfield and Greensburg Salem School Districts. For more information and to book a performance, call 724-832-7464. Shows are $200/performance, and multiple show discounts are available.
