Prime Stage Theater's goal to bring literatur to life is evidenced by their play selections and subsequent productions. I have attended their productions over the past 10 years and have never been disappointed by their professionalism and interpretation of the literature; they have always provided an exceptional experience. The educational outreach to the underserved communities thorugh their "Adopt a School" Program and student matinees provides an invaluable experience to these students which will last a lifetime. Their Teen Board and Mentor Program is an extension of their dedication to youth in the community with an interest and love for literature and theater.
Prime Stage's productions feature strong casts, excellent direction, and an intimate setting. I enjoy seeing theater up close. I can see an actor flex his jaw muscles; I can feel the air shake when someone shouts or cries. Prime Stage really lets you experience the play.
Prime Stage provides valuable services to underpriviledged youth in the Pittsburgh region through their education programs. I truly believe in their mission to entertain, educate, and enrich families, students, and educators in the discovery of theatre and literature.They address adolescent literacy with theatrical adaptations of literature,new plays, and educational programs. Their Adopt-a-School Program, along with Resource Guides, Student Matinee Program, “Chat Sessions,” Teacher Workshops, and Technical Theater Mentor Program and Teen Board help make theater and literature relevant, comprehensible, and enjoyable to middle school and high school educators, students, and their families.
