Who: Aftershock was founded by Carnegie Mellon University alumni to create high-quality art that is relevant to the city’s constantly evolving population. You can be a part of the organization too by volunteering.
What: The mission of Aftershock Theatre is to use innovative arts management best practices and fiscally responsible management to create powerfully resonant theatre for Pittsburgh’s increasingly diverse population and send aftershocks of inspiration and enlightenment throughout the city.
When: The theatre is set to present its inaugural season in 2017. In the meantime, smaller events are in the works. Join our mailing list to stay up to date.
Where: Aftershock Theatre will be housed at the old Slovenian Auditorium building in Lawrenceville. We are currently renovating the space; discover below how you can participate in the exciting process!
