Best of the Arts 2009: Annenberg Center

As 2010 approaches, I’ll be posting “Best of the Arts 2009” entries for several arts institutions and hubs across campus. First up: The Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts.

Highlight of the year: Celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Philadelphia International Children’s Festival (April 28 – May 2, 2009), says Nicole Cook, the Annenberg Center‘s Director of Marketing and Communications. The festival is the oldest of its kind in the country, and offers Philadelphia-area families an “easy and affordable way” to experience the arts. This year, more than 7,000 children and their families attended the Annenberg Center’s festivities, which included music, dance and theatrical performances, outdoor activities, and arts and crafts.

What’s coming in 2010: “An incredible lineup,” Cook says. That includes performances by fiddling sensation Natalie MacMaster, jazz singer Dee Dee Bridgewater and dancer/illusionists MOMIX, along with a production of Romeo and Juliet staged by The Acting Company and the Guthrie Theater.
