Pittsburgh Musical Theater
June 2, 2011

My daughter started at Pittsburgh Musical Theater in 2009 after seeing a pre-teen production at the New Hazlett Theater and declaring that she too wanted to do that! She started in their Broadway jr program for children ages 4-7yrs and loved it from the very beginning. The teachers are kind and make the class fun for the children. They even got a chance to show off their talents in the bi-annual showcase performed by the children at The Byham Theater. How thrilling that was for the kids!

This past fall, my daughter moved up to the pre-teen program and decided to do the whole day program on Saturdays. She is there from 9:30am until 4:30pm and loves every minute. It was a very smooth transition, the teachers and staff are superb at knowing how to help the newer children navigate their classrooms and just overall deal with the changes. New this year, in addition to performing in the Showcases, my daughter got to audition for and then perform in the pre-teen show! It was so exciting, first to get to audition which was a fun, low stress event, then to rehearse and put on a show. It was an amazing experience.

My overall experience of Pittsburgh Musical theater has been tremendous. The staff are all friendly and helpful and I've also enjoyed volunteering some time in the costume shop, helping make the costumes for the shows. They don't require help, but, I really like contributing and feeling more a part of the whole process.

A+++ to PMT!

My daughter is in the Broadway jr's class and she loves it. The teachers are amazing and everyone is so relaxed. I've also seen many shows at the Byham and New Hazlett theater. They put on amazing performances! I'm in awe of the talent and how well the shows are put together.
