Pittsburgh Musical Theater performs thrice a year as part of our educational programs. In the fall, our annual collaborative production backed by the talented CAPA Orchestra, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat takes place at the Byham Theater. Over the holiday season, the students of the Richard E. Rauh Conservatory perform A Lyrical Christmas Carol in the New Hazlett Theater. In the spring, the students perform their teen and pre-teen shows - this year, the teens are doing Rock of Ages High School Edition, and the pre-teens are doing Bye Bye Birdie - Young Performers Edition, both at our very own Gargaro Theater.

The irresistible family musical about the trials and triumphs of Joseph, Israel’s favorite son. One of the most enduring shows of all time, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is a reimagining of the Biblical story of Joseph, his father Jacob, eleven brothers and the coat of many colors. The magical musical is full of catchy songs in a variety of styles, from a parody of French ballads (“Those Canaan Days”), to country-western (“One More Angel in Heaven”) and calypso (“Benjamin Calypso”), along with the unforgettable classics “Any Dream Will Do” and “Close Every Door.”
Joseph... is a special presentation by the students of the Richard E. Rauh Conservatory, backed by the talented CAPA Orchestra, and fully produced by the professional artists of Pittsburgh Musical Theater.
