Express Children's Theatre performs year-round in its 90-seat theater in Northwest Mall, and in other venues, but it also presents a special summer Children's Hilltop Festival at Miller Outdoor Theatre, with a new play being performed at 11 a.m each day for four days in a row ending July 26. The plays cover a wide range of topics, from The Ransom of Red Chief, O. Henry's classic story of a kidnapping turned inside out, to Legends of Wind and Fire, a bilingual retelling of classic Argentinean and Brazilian fables.
Patricia Silver, executive director of Express Theatre, says: ''The plays are all colorful, entertaining and educational — why not see them all?''
