About Prime Stage Theatre

Prime Stage Theatre is committed to entertaining, inspiring and enriching the lives of Pittsburghers by bringing literature to life through a proprietary combination of professional theater productions and a wide and diverse range of educational programs.

Prime Stage is the only organization in southwestern Pennsylvania that presents plays based on works of classic and contemporary literature. Last season (2016–2017), Prime Stage celebrated its 20th season by presenting plays based on Harper Lee's "To Kill a Mockingbird, "George Orwell's "1984" and Steven Chbosky's "The Perks of Being a Wallflower."

During 2007–2008, in addition to "All Quiet On the Western Front," the organization will present stage adaptations of Maya Angelou's "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings" and "The Diary of Anne Frank."

Since the organization was founded in 1996, the work produced by Prime Stage has been essential to the cultural life in Pittsburgh and surrounding regions, reaching more than 12,000 people each year and measurably improving literacy among audiences and participants.
