SEASON ANNOUNCEMENT PARTY: AUGUST 27, 7-9pm
The New Hazlett Theater is excited to unveil the 2019/2020 artists for the Community Supported Art series at our Season Announcement Party on August 27. Be the first to hear from our artists about their performances! Join us for a night of celebration to kickoff of our seventh season with live music, light fare, and refreshments. This season’s artists really represent the dynamic range of work that is going on in Pittsburgh’s creative performing arts. This year, we hope to give our community more opportunities to connect with the artists and the work as it develops. This celebration is a great place to get to know our artists as they embark on their creative process. CSA Season 7 is as original as it gets with a range of performances including multimedia, hip hop, theater, puppetry, and soundart.
This event is free but an RSVP is required by August 24
NEW SHAREHOLDER BENEFITS!
This year we are introducing new shareholder benefits! Subscribe before or at the Season Announcement Party and receive a New Hazlett tote bag, the opportunity to reserve your seat for the CSA season, and a drink pin that if worn at each CSA performance will allow you one free drink.
Every year the New Hazlett Theater Community Supported Art program provides five local performing artists with a year-long residency to create new work. We give financial support, technical support, mentoring, and of course, an incredible venue to premiere their work in. Now in our seventh season, we will continue with two-night performances and a student matinee as part of our CSA EDU programming.
The New Hazlett CSA, the first and only performance series of its kind, introduces you to the freshest, most original artists in the Pittsburgh area. On the surface, our CSA seems like a regular subscription series, but underneath it’s so much more. Your share in the CSA doesn’t just pay for a seat at a show. You’re providing the resources these artists need to create professional caliber work. Beyond that, you’re helping to support Pittsburgh’s next crop of groundbreaking artists.
Over the past 3 seasons, the CSA Student Matinée program has hosted 9 schools with over 900 students and educators. You can help expand that reach and inspire the next generation of Pittsburgh artists by donating to the CSA Student Sponsorship Program. Each sponsorship you add to your subscription guarantees five local area high school students a seat at one of the student matinées.
If your school is interested in participating in our CSA program please contact Kristin Helfrich at CSAedu@newhazletttheater.org.
Thank you to our artists, shareholders, supporters, and patrons of our CSA season 6! Here is a look back at the incredible performances we had last season. Check back soon for CSA7 early subscriptions and artist announcements.
