Australian-based theater company Polyglot Theatre brings its renowned Paper Planet  to PIFA. Paper Planet  is a spectacular forest of tall cardboard trees inviting kids and adults to fill the world with fantastic paper creations. Each of the individual pieces that form the complete work are interactive engagements that draw upon the imagination and action of children and families to play, explore, invent and encounter through touch, action and drama. Each experience has at its core the belief that children must be given open-ended opportunities that allow them freedom, agency, and a space to engage imaginatively without mediation.

Recommended for ages 3 - 8.

Student matinee performances are available Apr 13 and 20. Interested teachers and school groups can request tickets here.

Kids who attend Paper Planet enjoy an Honest Kids juice pouch courtesy of Honest Tea!

Paper Planet is generously supported by PECO, Norman and Suzanne Cohn, and Johnson & Johnson.

This will be the Philadelphia Premiere of Paper Planet.
