Mission Statement

At the Kelly Strayhorn Theater we encourage diverse, inclusive and high quality, artistic, cultural and educational activities. By nurturing these pursuits, we contribute to cultural understanding, quality of life, as well as economic development in community, county, city and region. The Kelly-Strayhorn Theater is a unique and vibrant community performance arts center located in the heart of East Liberty, one of Pittsburgh’s most historic neighborhoods. Drawing audiences from throughout the city, the theater offers original and eclectic programming year-round.

Description

As the last of nine theaters from the 1950s heyday of East Liberty, the Kelly-Strayhorn plays a key role in the transformation of East Liberty into a welcoming and dynamic town-within-a-city by using the arts as a catalyst for continuing community revitalization.

The Kelly-Strayhorn Theater is an intimate, professionally-equipped, 350-seat multiple-use performance venue. With a commitment to support the burgeoning arts community in the city of Pittsburgh, the theater serves as an ideal place for emerging local artists, regional artists and arts organizations to take risks and present new work.

In addition to serving as a quality arts rental facility for up-and-coming small arts organizations, we will also begin to offer first-rate programming of our own, with a particular focus on interdisciplinary collaborations that showcase diverse and contemporary artistic ideas and practices. In addition, we will further enhance our commitment to artists and small arts organizations, providing programming and services dedicated to artists and the creative process.

Please join us and experience first-hand the cultural renaissance of East Liberty, where the next great talents live, breathe, work and thrive among us!
