From Shakespeare to Shaw and Beckett to Wilde, PICT Classic Theatre strives to create a culture of enlightened entertainment that exceeds expectations year after year. With the support of donors like you, PICT can keep bringing you the classic productions you love, whose memories stick with you long after the curtain falls. Those who join the PICT family as donors and sponsors do so because they have come to Expect More from Pittsburgh’s only classics-focused theatre. As our promise to you, we pledge that even if you can only give a little, you can expect a lot.
