Children's Hilltop Festival
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?''
11 a.m daily. (Legends of Wind and Fire is July 25, and The Ransom of Red Chief is July 26.) Miller Outdoor Theatre, 6000 Hermann Park Drive. For information, call 713‑682-5044 or visit expresstheatre.com. Free.
