    From the folks who brought you the Inhuman Festival, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, and Point Break Live comes another sure-fire favorite. 

    And this time, you can bring the kids.

    The Alley Theater for Young Audiences presents This is Not a Pipe Dream, a fantastical tale of a young boy who escapes from his discouraging childhood into the whimsical world of his paintings.

    Loosely based on the early years of Belgian artist Rene Magritte, the play blends comedy and inspiration as Rene is encouraged by his mother to pursue a career as an artist, something his father considers a “pipe dream.”

    The play is being produced in partnership with the Speed Art Museum, where all performances will take place.

    This is Not a Pipe Dream opens Friday, May 18 at 7pm, and continues through June 3 at various times, and is recommended for children ages 8 & up.

    Tickets, which include admission to the Speed Art Museum, are $10 for students 12 & under, and $15 for adults. They may be purchased online or by calling the Alley Theater box office at 502-713-6178.
