Kelly Strayhorn Theater
The mission of the Kelly Strayhorn Theater (KST) is to serve as a catalyst for creative expression and the active engagement of audiences. focusing on the performing and media arts of our time, KST takes a diverse, multi-disciplinary, inclusive and international approach to the presentation and understanding of the arts. KST programs examine the questions that define and inspire us as individuals and communities.
Our mission supports a vision in three parts. We are a leading presenter of innovative works in dance, theater, music, live and literary arts; a community resource for youth education, emerging artist support and community partnership; and a neighborhood destination accelerating the transformation of Pittsburgh’s East Liberty neighborhood as a destination for art, culture and economic opportunity.
