Pittsburgh Musical Theater
February 10, 2010
My daughter has been with the program since she was 5 years old. There is nothing like this program in the area for promoting the youth to a theater arts program. All instructors have experience performing as well as teaching children and young adults. All kids are included in the audition process for any conservatory shows as well as professional shows. If awarded a role for a professional show they perform on stage with professional actors and learn the demands of performing on stage. Conservatory shows also have the same demands and all kids learn how to work and learn with their peers. The staff at PMT are also very professional and fair. The director, Colleen Petrucci of the conservatory runs the school very well and she is the "rock" of the school seeing that every aspect runs smoothly. The founding director, Ken Gargaro's passion to see that the youth are exposed to the theater is one of a kind. When anyone new comes to see a PMT production they are "blown away" at the talent that both Ken and Colleen bring to the show. I can't say enough about this program and only hope that they are rewarded for their contribution to the Pittsburgh Arts Community.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
seeing my daughter perform on stage and take these skills she has learned in other areas of her life.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
obtain its own building to expand more classes, smaller class sizes and a larger lounge area for students and parents. As well as space for sets and costumes. Also use funds to market the school and the programs they provide.
