Pittsburgh Irish and Classical Theatre are running an online photo contest through their website for the upcoming production of Joe Orton's ribald sex farce "What the Butler Saw"!

Email your picture (300 dpi or better) to on or before June 14th. Finalists will be chosen to go on to the "open voting round", and between June 17 and 25th you and your friends, neighbors, PICT patrons - anyone who wants to - can go to the "What the Butler Saw" page on our website and follow the voting instructions which will be posted there.

Grab your camera & go for it! Winner receives bragging rights, 4 tickets to any PICT show in the 2009 season, an enlarged copy of their photo (also displayed in lobby for closing weekend), and either a show poster or their photo signed by the "Butler" cast.

Renaissance City Choirs
Gays and lesbians creating change through the power of music

Rock' n' roll by Tom Stoppard at the Henry Heymann Theatre May 7th-30th.

“Rock’n’roll wasn’t just music to us, it was kind of life itself.”
Rock’N’Roll by Tom Stoppard, May 7-30, Henry Heymann Theatre

It’s 1968 and Russian tanks are rolling into Prague. Jan, a Czech student, lives for rock’n’roll. Max, his Cambridge professor and mentor, lives for Communism. Syd, the Piper, disappears from public view at the height of his fame while Esme, the flower child, gets high…and a shaggy-haired rock band, The Plastic People of the Universe, comes to symbolize resistance to the Communist regime. By 1990, the tanks are rolling out, the Stones are rolling in, an absurdist playwright is in Prague Castle, and utopian idealism has hit a wall.

Four-time Tony Award winner Tom Stoppard’s sweeping and passionate play spans two countries, three generations, 22 turbulent years, and one heck of a lot of great rock’n’roll. Directed by PICT Artistic Director Andrew S. Paul.

Single Tickets: $48 - $36 ($17 Under 25)

Looking for more theatres/theatre groups in Pittsburgh

I've been making up a list of theatres and theatre groups in Pittsburgh and putting them up on the profile page and was wondering if everyone could take a look at it and see if there are any that are maybe not included? I'm especially wondering about smaller theatre groups, there has to be more I would think.

And if you could, invite your friends who you think would like to join the group.

Joan of Arc led an army, crowned a king and saved a nation from certain demise. After the battles are over and she is no longer politically useful, what's to be done with her? Will the men who preside over her trial make her a sacrifice, a martyr or an example?
