The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on our venues and events. The safety of our guests, staff, and artists is of paramount importance, and in continued response to Governor Wolf's order, effective March 19, 2020 until further notice, to prohibit the operation of all businesses that are not life-sustaining, we have come to the extremely difficult decision to suspend Pittsburgh Cultural Trust events, extending through June 14.

As a result, The EQT Children's Theater Festival, and all performances of Origami Tales have been cancelled. Ticket buyers were contacted by email on April 20, 2020. Please check your email for ticket options from the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust (noreply@trustarts.org). We appreciate your response within two weeks. If we have not connected with you, please Contact Us.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Thank you in advance for your understanding and patience as we process a large number of requests.
