Education at PMT

The Richard E. Rauh Conservatory offers the finest training in the Pittsburgh area in dance, music, and theater. We are particularly proud of our educated, talented, and accomplished Resident Artists.

In the Teen, Pre-teen and Broadway Jr. programs, students ages 4 - 18 have a unique and amazing opportunity to work in a professional environment with their peers. Their singing, acting and dancing skills develop in a disciplined classroom atmosphere. The students then test these skills in performance. The audience applause strengthens their self confidence and positively reinforces their hard work.

The Pittsburgh Musical Theater's Pre-College Program has served as a pathway to Broadway, feature films, and University training. Graduates have matriculated at Yale, CMU, NYU, Boston Conservatory, Florida State University, Penn State, Point Park and many others.

Pittsburgh Musical Theater holds an annual open house, where you and your student can tour the facility, have questions answered, and even take a few sample classes. This year, our open house dates are:
