The Playhouse Jr. Theater in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is the second oldest continually running children’s theatre in the United States. The theater has produced a play for children based on the "Hans Brinker or the Silver Skates" story, that is a the musical dramatization of Mary Mapes Dodge’s tale of the race for the silver skates. The play will run from March 13 through April 4, 2004. Performances of Hans Brinker or the Silver Skates will be on Saturdays and Sundays at 11:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Tickets cost $7 USD and are available by phoning the Playhouse box office at 412-621-4445.

Written in 1865 by American author Mary Mapes Dodge, "Hans Brinker or the Silver Skates" is the story of a championship ice skating race on the frozen canals of Holland, with a pair of silver skates as the prize. As allegory, "Hans Brinker or the Silver Skates" extols the values of generosity, patience, compassion and responsibility -- and shows that virtues can be rewarded through ways other than money.

Playhouse Jr.’s production of "Hans Brinker or the Silver Skates" is directed by Penelope Miller Lindblom, who is including actual skating with the staging. It is a musical adaptation, with book by Gayle Hudson and music and lyrics by Bobbe Bramson.

Playhouse Jr. productions are crafted to be family friendly for little ones through middle schoolers.

More information about the play, Playhouse Jr. and the Pittsburgh Playhouse of Point Park University is available by phoning 412.621.4445 or by visiting the Playhouse web site at PPC.edu - Playhouse
