Experience the Pride, Power and Passion!
In lieu of the recent announcement from WGI and other circuits announcing their plans for a very limited virtual to no performance opportunities, as well as lack of facility availability, we have made the difficult decision that Pittsburgh Performance Project will take the 2021 season off from performing. Covid 19 may be stopping us from performing this year, but it will not keep us down for long. The staff will be taking the season off to spend time restructuring the Pittsburgh Performance Project. We are planning great changes for our 25th season of performing and look forward to seeing everyone at auditions for the 2022 season! Look for audition dates to come out in the summer of 2021. Pittsburgh Performance Project would like to thank you for your support over the past twenty-four years!
