Passion and Community
Our Mission: The mission of Prime Stage is to bring great literature to life through the transformative process of live theatre – to entertain, inform, enrich and inspire audiences with engaging programs that deliver long-lasting benefits to the students, educators, youth, families and theatregoers of our region.
Vision: Prime Stage employs the engaging immediacy of live theatre to enrich the lives of children, youth and adults, fostering empathy and community connection, opening the mind to new perspectives, and instilling qualities of imagination, creativity, curiosity and wonder. Within our theatre-based educational programs in the school system, we partner with dedicated teachers to foster literacy, critical thinking, interpersonal communication, and the love of reading as a lifelong pursuit.
In the Community: A hallmark of Prime Stage is how we consistently enrich the artistic and educational productions with community-wide programs presented alongside local partners.

Volunteer Opportunities at Prime Stage
Prime Stage Ambassadors
They encourage conversations with patrons which will result in continued patronage and support and promote Prime Stage Theatre throughout the Pittsburgh region.
Teacher Advisory Council (TAC)
We believe that literacy and the theatre can lift people up, inspire opportunities, and present new ways of seeing the world in positive ways. Effective teachers help students connect literature to their own world. Students discover literature, enjoy reading and vicariously "live in" the literature. Talented artists bring stories from the pages to life by providing multi-sensory experiences. Our adaptations of literature and historical figures and programs are selected and produced to meet those goals.
Teen advisory board (TAB - (ages 13 - 18)
The Prime Stage Teen Advisory board is a group of young adults who are passionate about theatre and the arts, who have the desire to uphold the mission of Prime Stage, to serve and engage the Pittsburgh community, to connect to and encourage the minds of youth, and prioritize social relevance in the arts.
