FOR IMMEDIATE RELASE: Kelly Strayhorn Theater welcomes Pittsburgh audiences home to our venues this fall

EAST LIBERTY, PA, August 20, 2021 – After nearly two years apart, Kelly Strayhorn Theater is excited to welcome all lovers of the arts back home to East Liberty this fall for an unforgettable series of dance, art, theatrical, and musical performances. 

Masks will be required for both vaccinated and unvaccinated guests. “With the uncertainty of the pandemic, our community’s health and safety come first for us at KST. Moving forward into our 2021-2022 season, we will continue to closely follow the CDC and Allegheny County Health Department’s guidelines to make sure that all of us can enjoy the performing arts without fear or unease. All our performances, workshops, and classes will be masked and physically distanced because to us, you can’t have a great show without an audience who feels safe and at home,” said Joseph Hall, Executive Director of Kelly Strayhorn Theater. 

Taking inspiration from the cultural tradition of Black homemaking, KST is affirming itself as a home for artists and a site of resistance, birthing community-centered arts where all are valued, with particular care and nurturance for historically resilient folks. 

Season events take place at both the Kelly Strayhorn Theater, located at 5941 Penn Avenue, and KST’s Alloy Studios, at 5530 Penn Avenue, unless otherwise noted. 

Tickets are now on sale at kst.imagebox.dev or can be purchased in person at the event. Pricing is Pay What Makes You Happy!, a sliding scale of accessible price points in order to truly welcome all to enjoy the arts.
