The Gargaro Theater

Originally built in 1915 as the St. James School, The Gargaro Theater was rededicated via a Board of Directors gift in 2015 in honor of our Founding Artistic Director Kenneth V. Gargaro. This theatrical venue is an exciting new opportunity for Pittsburgh Musical Theater to explore the use of our new space including edgier, 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 additional new home.

Pittsburgh Musical Theater will perform five times this year in The Gargaro Theater. Beginning with Evil Dead the Musical (this year's After Hours show - daring, audacious, and gritty!) continuing through the season with two student Richard E. Rauh Conservatory productions and two professional productions!

The 2019-2020 Season productions in the Gargaro Theater:
Evil Dead the Musical
HAIR
Bye Bye Birdie Young Performers' Edition
Rock of Ages High School Edition
Twelfth Night
