Upcoming Events


We’re so much more than a beautifully restored building. We’re an incubator of the arts in Pittsburgh – and we’re passionate about providing a space for creative minds to develop, collaborate, and grow. We provide artists with technical, moral, and financial support, so they can make their magic. Because making art requires both imagination and significant resources, please support us with a charitable contribution.

Your financial gift directly supports the work of the artists at the New Hazlett Theater by allowing us to keep their share of the facility costs rock-bottom affordable. With your help, we can remove barriers and our artists can create the work you enjoy so much.


The Richard King Mellon Foundation has made a generous offer: for every new donor we bring in, they will match the donation 100%.  It’s an amazing show of faith and support for the New Hazlett Theater.  One that is only matched itself by the generosity of our local community.

Watch the video below to learn more about how your donation to the Theater is making a difference by supporting local artists.
