The Performance Collaborative

The Performance Collaborative organizes opportunities for performance students to work their craft such as workshops, staged readings, and student-organized productions. The organization acts as a vehicle for utilizing, promoting and learning from the myriad resources available in the Theatre Arts Department of the University of Pittsburgh, and it increases undergraduate involvement in the decisions made by the Theatre Department.
