Prime Stage Theatre Announces Their 2023-2024 Season

“Our 27th season theme of Courage and Discovery will have a profound impact as we bring literature to life on stage. It’s important that each of our productions be a unique and memorable experience for our patrons, partners, and special guests for post-show discussions. This year, you’ll explore the boundaries of the senses, refuse to be told what to do, immerse yourself with memories, and be selected as a juror,” said Wayne Brinda, Prime Stage Theatre Producing Artistic Director. 

In addition to their performances at the New Hazlett Theatre, Prime Stage has several additional events scheduled for this fall:

Prime Stage Cemetery Walk | Homewood. Cemetery | September 30, 2023

Taking place at the Homewood Cemetery, guests will be inspired by historical Pittsburgh legends as we bring their history to life. Experience the history of Pittsburgh’s legends buried at the cemetery as local actors in period costumes portray their incredible lives and their impact on Pittsburgh.

The cemetery opened for business in 1878 and was purposefully situated between enormously wealthy and prestigious neighborhoods. Breathtaking, panoramic vistas typically do not come to mind when thinking about cemeteries. Homewood Cemetery is more than a final resting place; it is a historic landmark with a fascinating history.

Reservations are required and available only online at Events – Prime Stage
