Thank you to all of those who joined us at both the Byham Theater and Gargaro Theater during our 2017-2018 Sing Out Loud Season. Together, we found true love in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, rocked with Queen in We Will Rock You, took a journey under the sea in Disney’s The Little Mermaid and visited the hysterical puppets on Avenue Q. Wow, what a year it has been! We hope that you enjoyed your time with Pittsburgh Musical Theater this year.
Things did look excitingly different this season and came with many new adventures. We are excited to say that our new programming, which included our own Gargaro Theater in the Rockin’ West End, was extremely successful. We are delighted to announce that we will continue to present two shows at the Byham Theater, and three shows in our own Gargaro Theater.

The Rockin’ West End Series will take place in PMT’s very own Gargaro Theater.

This theatrical venue is an exciting new opportunity for Pittsburgh Musical Theater to explore the use of our new space including edgier, more exciting titles for our adult audiences. Pittsburgh Musical Theater is thrilled about these new opportunities, and can’t wait to continue entertaining you in our new home.
