Our Accessibility Contact is Connie Brinda, Operations Director
Prime Stage and The New Hazlett Center for the Performing Arts are committed to making all events at the theater as inclusive as possible. We continually evaluate our environment and our staff to make enhancements so all patrons enjoy a welcoming, inclusive experience.
The New Hazlett Theater offers a limited number of handicapped parking spaces. On the east side of the building, you will find a wheelchair accessible ramp that will take you into the lobby. A level pathway will take you from the lobby into the theater. For seating, multiple spaces in the front row of our seating banks can accommodate wheelchairs and companions.
With 48 hours prior notice, ALD services can be made available. If you would like more information, have any questions, or would like to discuss special arrangements, please call Tyson Schrader at 412.320.4610.
For Student Matinees, please email Mary Windstein, the Prime Stage Education Box Office Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org when making your reservations to request what is needed.

Where are we
All public and student matinee performances will be produced at The New Hazlett Theater in Allegheny Center on Pittsburgh's North Side near the Pittsburgh Children's Museum.
Are the shows
suitable to all ages?
All of our shows are appropriate for youth from middle school through high school, plus adults, families, and educators. If you have any questions, you may call the Administration Office at 724-773-0700 or email the Artistic Director at email@example.com.
are "Chat Sessions"?
For public performances
Our “Chat Sessions” immediately follow our Saturday Night public performances and all Student Matinees.
On Saturday nights, you and your family can have Desserts with the Director and chat about the performance.
Look for discussion prompts in the playbills that you, your family and friends can talk about on the way home.
For Student matinee field trips
Our “Chat Sessions” immediately follow all Student Matinee performances. Chat sessions usually last about 15 minutes. They provide students and teachers with an opportunity to ask the cast and crew questions about what they saw and felt during the play, about the literature on which the play is based, and about live theatre.
Our goal is to extend and deepen the experience for young people.
Is Prime Stage
accessible to patrons with disabilities?
"The arts are a right, not a privilege...No citizen should be deprived of the beauty and insights into the human experience only the arts can impart."
- National Council on the Arts, 1973 Facility Access
