“Through this relationship, we’re able to bring some Pittsburgh artists down to West Virginia, show off West Virginia a little bit and also show West Virginians what these Pittsburgh folks can do, and then we’re able to take our West Virginia artists up and enjoy Pittsburgh and show off what our West Virginia artists can do up there,” said Jason A. Young, Co-Founder of the Vintage Theatre Company.

The show is free to the public, with donations accepted for Steel City Shakespeare and merchandise available for purchase.
