Named after 20th century entertainment legends, Gene Kelly and Billy Strayhorn, both natives of Pittsburgh's East Liberty neighborhood, the Kelly Strayhorn Theater (KST) is reflective of the passion that its founders had for the arts. The mission of the Kelly Strayhorn Theater is to serve as a catalyst for creative expression that brings diverse communities together. Focusing on the performing and media arts of our time, we take a multidisciplinary and inclusive approach to presenting contemporary performing arts. Our programs examine the questions that define and inspire us as individuals and communities. Our mission supports a vision in three parts: a leading presenter, a community resource, and a neighborhood destination.
