PMT's Capital Campaign

Imagine a student-centric performing arts center in the West End Village and help make that dream a reality.

Inspired by the vision of providing a welcoming and inclusive home for professional-level musical theater instruction and performance, Pittsburgh Musical Theater and the Richard E. Rauh Conservatory have been an anchor for the West End Village for more than 10 years.

Transforming the James Centre for our students and our community is the commitment to sharing the joy of musical theater with everyone regardless of age, ability, cultural background, or financial circumstance.

In 2010, PMT initiated a three-phase purchase and renovation plan to transform the James Centre from adequate to a modern, one-of-a-kind arts education center. This vision will reach and inspire more students and adults by providing access to the best of the world's musical theater education and performance.

Dramatic improvement is ahead. With the acquisition ands stabilization of the building completed, this former elementary school will soon feature new, expanded classrooms, and intimate theater for student and community use, and street spacing that will enable it to become the gateway to the West End Village for generations to come.

Phase Two is on the horizon. With your help, this world class performing arts school and center will soon have the environment that matches the music already inside.



Phase Two

  • Create enhanced teaching, learning, and performance spaces for students, faculty, and parents
  • Enhance the functionality of the Gargaro Theater, a unique, multi-purpose performance space
  • Create a unique and recognizable exterior that adds to the functionality of the building while preserving the historic elements of the original structure
  • Improve the building and theater entrance by opening the lobby and creating a lounge and reception area immediately adjacent to the entry
  • Provide comfortable, light-filled interior and exterior spaces for events, gatherings, patron and student connections, helping to realize the potential of PMT to build community through the performing arts.
