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 and 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.
Pittsburgh Musical Theater is thankful for the generous individuals, foundations, corporations, and government partners who support our mission with their philanthropic investment. Please make sure to note that your donation is for the Capital Campaign.
Without your help, and the help of our generous foundations, PMT would not be in the wonderful position we are today. PMT would like to take a moment to thank the generosity of the following:
