Destinations of Distinction:
Kelly Strayhorn Theater & The Alloy Studios


Two of Pittsburgh’s most unique event rental spaces, conveniently located in the heart of the East End.

Kelly Strayhorn Theater is an intimate, professionally-equipped, 350-seat multiple-use performance venue. A celebrated architectural treasure approaching its centennial in 2014, the Kelly Strayhorn upholds a strong commitment to emerging artists in Pittsburgh and provides a stage for local artists, regional artists and arts organizations to take risks and present new work. The theater and lobby space at 5941 Penn Avenue are available for performances, screenings, meetings, and other special events.

The Alloy Studios are newly renovated performance studios designed to accommodate exclusive public performance events, classes, workshops, rehearsals, and much more. Located in the historic Showroom Building at 5530 Penn Avenue (across from Salt of the Earth), the Alloy Studios offers two unique spaces for your event. Studio I, on the ground, floor features a newly installed LED theatrical lighting plot, professional sound, and sprung dance floor. Studio II, on the third floor, is a spacious dance studio bathed in natural light with banks of windows that overlook Penn and Stratford Avenues. Both studios are wheelchair accessible.

Our active rental service brings exciting and unusual events to the East End. Beautiful facilities are professionally-equipped to accommodate a wide range of performing arts events such as concerts, dance, music, theater, and other disciplines at competitive market-based rental rates. Services can include box office, house managers, concessions, and technical production crew.
