Frequently Asked Questions
Where are we located?
All public and student matinee performances will be produced at the New Hazlett Theater Center for Performing Arts 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do we have "Chat Sessions"?
For public performances
We have audience discussions with special guests at selected performances each season. Check the Events page to see what we have planned for you and your family.
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 theatrical experience.
Is Prime Stage accessible to patrons with disabilities?
