"The training I had at Point Park prepared me for the rigor of real life. The facilities that you get to train, rehearse and perform in are absolutely incredible. It is truly top of the line." 

Jeff Gorti '16, performing in Chicago on Broadway

Point Park University's award-winning Pittsburgh Playhouse announced over 30 performances across a multitude of arts disciplines for the 2022-23 season.

At the Playhouse, Conservatory of Performing Arts students have the unique opportunity to work in a professional setting while learning their craft. 

"The training I had at Point Park prepared me for the rigor of real life," said Jeff Gorti '16, who is performing in Chicago on Broadway. "The facilities that you get to train, rehearse and perform in are absolutely incredible. It is truly top of the line." 

"The education, training and experience I had as a student was truly exceptional," said Dara Schlesinger '21, associate performer for Missouri Contemporary Ballet. "In addition to working with the incredibly talented dance faculty, I trained with a variety of guest artists and choreographers from different backgrounds."
