ARTfully UPlifting is a newly developed show uniting themes of hope, acceptance, and inclusion for sensory-friendly audiences. In a first-of-its-kind for Point Park University, the Conservatory of Performing Arts students will create a variety of live performances—singing, dancing, poetry, and more—showcased in a concert style format. 

With a diverse offering of the sensational talents of our COPA students, each variety act will range from 90 seconds to 2 minutes in length. Audiences can expect a full-length showcase featuring something for everyone, and most importantly, anyone. There will be two acts with one 15-minute intermission. Each act will offer 40 minutes of entertainment. 

Audience members are encouraged to bring personal comfort items such as noise canceling headphones, fidget toys, snacks, and weighted blankets. Patrons are welcome to exit and enter the theater as needed. A quiet room will be available off the grand lobby.  

The Pittsburgh Playhouse is proud to partner with Autism Connection of Pennsylvania, ESTEEM Group, Inc., and Achieva. Special thanks to our sponsors, Giant Eagle, Two Men and a Truck, Forbes Tavern, Wrecking Crew Media, Sandy Mervosh & Women in Industry, Dorene Ciletti, and Amanda Bolea-Munsch.
