Kelly Strayhorn Theater

Kelly Strayhorn Theater


Named for two of Pittsburgh’s most celebrated talents in the last century—dancer Gene Kelly and composer Billy Strayhorn—Kelly Strayhorn Theater contributes to the renaissance of East Liberty and redefines theater with provocative, original programming and a social experience unlike any other venue in the region. KST is approaching its centennial anniversary in 2014, a time to celebrate our role in the vibrant and diverse cultural history of Pittsburgh’s East Liberty.

Through the Alloy School, artSEEDS Student Matinees, and our artist residency programs, KST encourages diverse, inclusive, and high quality artistic, cultural and educational activities. By nurturing these pursuits, we contribute to cultural understanding, quality of life, as well as economic development in our community, county, city and region.
