Target demographics: Pittsburgh Musical Theater’s mission statement provides the basis for its artistic vision. PMT is committed to providing quality musical theater at an affordable price, to educating youth, and to developing and promoting local talent. Thus, artistic decisions are made with PMT’s student and audience demographics in mind. Our goal is to combine local seasoned professionals and career-oriented younger artists to produce quality musicals.  Accessible materials with compelling themes that play well to our middle and working class audiences are a driving force. As well, musicals that provide opportunities for our high school and college age students, and musicals that support educational goals in the public schools demand attention.  Overall, we see artistic value in leveraging what is best in our professional company to support our educational programs. Maintaining a pricing point that allows all citizens to experience the joy of a musical performed in Pittsburgh’s Cultural District continues to inspire our vision.

Mission:
PMT is committed to its mission of providing quality, affordable musical theater to the Pittsburgh region, to educating youth in the arts and to employing and developing local talent.  
Results:
PMT considers the youth of our organization to be our most valuable asset. Placing their education at the center of our programming has enabled a philosophy of “continuity of training that is tested regularly in performance’” to gain traction. This philosophy has proved effective in producing disciplined, prepared individuals. A small staff with a strong commitment to our mission provides a foundation of focus and flexibility. This allows PMT to meet challenges with an eye for quick action to adapt. PMT is considered the home away from home by most of our students and graduates. Because of our small size there has been a ‘family’ feel to our culture, where young talent is nurtured and graduates return regularly to act, direct, and teach.

Seeing 1200 students completely focused on a live theatrical production and cheering at its conclusion confirms our mission. This happens regularly over the course of the season. Watching our young talent mature into seasoned performers ready to excel in either higher education or the professional world is a measure of PMT’s success. Knowing that the majority of our students will apply the discipline, heart, and knowledge they have gained through their association with PMT to a wide range of professions validates the basic PMT process as a builder of good citizens. Seeing dozens of our graduates from the 90s building careers on Broadway, film, and TV validates PMT’s musical theater education as a promoter of the next generation of theatrical artists.  Seeing grandparents with their grandchildren and large families attending a cultural activity on a regular basis validates PMT’s mission to provide high quality, affordable musical theater to the Pittsburgh community.
