Space Rental

Kelly Strayhorn Theater and KST’s Alloy Studios
Two unique venues, conveniently located in Pittsburgh’s East End

Thank you so much for your interest in renting space at one of our two venues. As you know, Governor Tom Wolf and Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine ordered 67 Pennsylvania counties to be under stay-at-home orders until April 30th, 2020. In addition, Gov. Tom Wolf has ordered all nonessential business activity end in Allegheny County.

Because of this mandate, Kelly Strayhorn Theater (KST) will be postponing all event and rental activities through the end of May. However, at this time, we are accepting rental inquiries for the Fall. Like everyone, we are closely monitoring the situation, but for now, the theater and KST’s Alloy Studios are not in full operation.

We will keep you posted when we will be able to accept rental inquiries for your upcoming events and programs.

Thank you for your support.


Kelly Strayhorn Theater and KST’s Alloy Studios are two professionally – equipped venues located in the heart of the Penn Avenue Arts district. These spaces play host to a collection of exciting events throughout the year and can accommodate a wide range of events such as concerts, dance performances, theater productions, lectures, and meetings—all at competitive market-based rates.
