UNION – Premiere Stages at Kean University announces “Play Factory 2012,” the annual summer family series presenting Pushcart Players, New Jersey’s renowned touring theatre for young audiences. “Stone Soup…and other stories” will be on Wednesday, July 18 at 11 a.m. and “Little Red Riding Hood” plays on Wednesday, July 25 at 11 a.m. in the Wilkins Theatre.

“Stone Soup” is a familiar brew of favorite tales from around the world will delight audiences from all walks of life, at all ages,” said Ruth Fost, the co-founder and artistic director of Pushcart Players. “It’s a charming, well-seasoned blend of folk tales that emphasize the joy of reading.” Dynamic, participatory and filled with zesty entertainment, “Stone Soup…” is on the gourmet menu list of “not to be missed” family audiences everywhere.

“In this fast paced, frenetic world, isn’t it comforting to know that some things never change?” posed Fost when asked about Little Red Riding Hood. “One of them is the joy and enchantment of stories that begin with ‘Once upon a time.’ The timeless tales of ‘Princess and the Pea,’ ‘The Emperor’s New Clothes,’ ‘Red Riding Hood’ and ‘All’s Well That Ends Well’ are dressed with a twinkle, a grin and a contemporary spin in this enchanting production.”

Pushcart Players is an award-winning professional theatre and arts-in-education company for young audiences. Pushcart programs offer the finest artists and arts educators available in the field, bringing the best of theatre arts to young viewers in schools and local theatres with 38 years of excellence in theatre arts programming for young audiences.
