PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — A total of 450 producers, performers and agents from around the world have descended on Pittsburgh, hosted by the Pittsbukrgh Cultural Trust. Performances are being held at the Byham Theater and August Wilson Center, through Saturday.

The theater professionals are in town for the “International Performing Arts Showcase for Youth.”

Association director Boomer Stacey and Pam Lieberman, of the Cultural Trust, brought the performers to Pittsburgh for the third time.

“Pittsburgh is an amazing city,” Liebrman says. “We have a great arts scene locally and we have terrific venues, and we have families who love to come out and see theater.”

Eighteen kid-friendly performances are open to the public, free of charge, through Saturday.

“I think what families will enjoy is it’s a surprise,” Stacey adds. “And no matter when you come out, no matter what you pick, there’s a surprise waiting for you behind the doors.”
