The New Hazlett Theater, 6 Allegheny Square East, is turning 10 this year, and to celebrate they are throwing the best 10-year-old’s birthday party you’ve ever seen with adult-sized games from City of Play, pizza and hot dogs from Wood Fired Flatbreads and Franktuary, specially themed cocktails, and yes, even a giant bouncy castle.

The party will take place on Friday, September 16 and begins at 7 p.m.

The New Hazlett wouldn’t be here without the community. Together, they’ve touched the lives of actors, musicians, dancers, performers, and everyone in between.

In addition to the festivities, the New Hazlett is asking the community to send them photos of themselves holding up 10 fingers like the folks in the photos above. Tweet the photos @newhazlett with the hashtag #10Candles or post them to Facebook.
