Mission, Vision, & Values
To transform lives through art that engages, enriches, enlightens and entertains
Point Park University's Pittsburgh Playhouse sits at the crossroads of education, art, and community. Uniquely positioned in Downtown Pittsburgh on the campus of Point Park University, the Playhouse is Point Park University's learning laboratory where the arts and education coincide. We leverage the extraordinary resources of the award-winning Pittsburgh Playhouse to engage and showcase the finest and most innovative regional, national, and international artists.

Ultimately we seek to become among the most vibrant, vital and relevant cultural institutions in Pittsburgh.
