This week in Pittsburgh: Lozziwurms, singing orphans, and little mermaids

As usual, this week at CLP we have a plethora of things for you to come and do –

watch a movie about terrifying earthworms,

play in a video and card game tournament,

create songs, films, graphic art and more at a Labs location,

sew your own creations,

draw comics

the list goes on and on.

Going to a library program is one thing you can do to complete your TSR activity list – don’t forget to turn yours in so you can go to our End of Summer Reading festivities!

In the wider world of Pittsburgh there are also some things well worth mentioning –

1. The Lozziwurm, “a colorful, twisting, tubular play sculpture designed by Yvan Pestalozzi in 1972” is open for play at the Carnegie Library Museum of Art. It’s part of the upcoming 2013 Carnegie International, and part of their current Playground Project exhibit.

You’re never too old for a playground, so go play on the Lozziwurm and learn about competing schools of thought in playground design and theory (yes, it’s a thing!)

(Taking a photo at a museum is also something on the TSR activity list, hint hint…)

2. Are you an actor, singer, dancer, or all three? Do you want to be?

There are several open auditions going on this week

oliver!

The Heritage Players in Bethel Park is auditioning for a production of Oliver! – the classic tale of a hungry orphan. Bring a song of your choice.

(Hint: The library has librettos, cds, and sheet music for many, many, musicals. Checking a book out of the library is one activity to do on your TSR Activity List!)

Gemini Theater in Point Breeze is auditioning for a production of The Little Mermaid – they’re asking for a 1-2 minute a capella song and cold reading.

and finally, The Junior Mendelssohn Choir is looking for singers for all voice parts. Click the link for audition requirements and dates.
