FEATURED EVENTS

Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre + Dance Theatre of Harlem

When Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre and Dance Theatre of Harlem joined forces in 2017 for a sold-out run at the August Wilson Center, the Post-Gazette called it “a pas de deux of voluminous proportions.” Audiences called encore. In March, the companies will reunite for a mixed repertory production, featuring repertoire signatures from both companies and a collaborative staging of Stanton Welch’s expressive Orange, a sweeping contemporary ballet set to music by Antonio Vivaldi.

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee - Comtra Theatre

An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming "ding" of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box.
