The Big Apple series at the Byham Theater continues Pittsburgh Musical Theater’s tradition of providing quality, affordable, family entertainment.
Pittsburgh Musical Theater performs twice a year in the Byham Theater. In the fall, our Byham Educational Show features the student performers of the Richard E. Rauh conservatory and the student orchestra from CAPA High School. In the spring, our professional company produces the largest scale show of our season, guaranteed to entertain the whole family.
Originally built in 1903 as the Gayety Theater, The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust purchased this 1300-seat venue, then called the Fulton Theater, in 1988. The Trust renovated and reopened the Fulton Theater in 1991. The theater was renamed the Byham Theater in 1995, in recognition of a gift from William C. and Carolyn M. Byham.
