Originally built in 1915 as the St. James School, The Gargaro theater was rededicated via a Board of Directors gift in 2015 in honor of our Founding Artistic Director Kenneth V. Gargaro. This theatrical venue is an exciting new opportunity for Pittsburgh Musical Theater to explore the use of our new space including edgier, exciting titles for our adult audiences. Pittsburgh Musical Theater is thrilled about these new opportunities, and can't wait to continue entertaining you in our additional new home.
Pittsburgh Musical Theater will perform three times this year in the Gargaro Theater. In the spring, our professional company will produce 2 professional shows, and additionally one of our new "After Hours" series shows - daring, audacious, gritty, and starting at 10:00pm!
