Andrew Carnegie Music Hall

Andrew Carnegie Music Hall in Carnegie, Pennsylvania, was patterned after Carnegie Music Hall in New York City. With its wonderful accoustics the Music Hall has been the site of many performances of concerts, musicals and stage plays. It has even been used for the production of musical recordings on CDs.

The Music Hall is currently the home of The Pittsburgh Savoyards, Stage 62, and The Carnegie Performing Arts Center.

The Pittsburgh Savoyards

The Pittsburgh Savoyards, Inc. is a semiprofessional, community-based, nonprofit theater company that perpetuates the heritage of Gilbert & Sullivan comic operas and provides an opportunity for people to learn about and experience musical theater. Gilbert & Sullivan operettas amuse and entertain because of their witty lyrics, beautiful music, and topsy-turvy plots. This season the Pittsburgh Savoyards will present two fine productions with full orchestral accompaniment.

  • In "Ruddigore," an English baron labors under a witch's curse requiring him to commit a crime each day. The cast includes a troupe of professional bridesmaids, a sweet young thing, a worldly sailor, a ditsy woman, and ghostly ancestors who come back to enforce the curse. (October 1-3, 8-10, 15-17 - 2004)
  • "The Gondoliers" features two young men of Venice, one of whom may be the heir to the throne of a nearby kingdom. Until the puzzle is solved, they rule jointly and proclaim everyone to be equal. This show, in particular, was a favorite of Queen Victoria. (January 14-16, 21-23, 28-30 - 2005)

Stage 62

Stage 62 is a nonprofit performing arts group that was founded in Bethel Park in 1962. It has performed at the Andrew Carnegie Music Hall in Carnegie since 1990. Stage 62 performs a musical each fall, a children's show in the winter, a drama in the spring and usually a musical in the summer.

  • "Children of Eden" is a joyous and inspirational musical about parents, children and faith... not to mention centuries of unresolved family business. A deeply jumanistic work, "Children of Eden" appeals to both religious and non-religious audiences. The story is freely based on Genesis by the authors of "Pippin," "Godspell," and "Les Miserables." (July 22-25, 29-August 1 - 2004)
  • The annual, fund-raising variety show this year is "Stage 62 Goes to the Movies," and features a program of movie-related musical numbers. (Aug 27-28 - 2004)
  • "Annie" is a popular musical based on the "Little Orphan Annie" comic strip. With orphans, a dog, a billionaire, and a heart-warming conclusion, the show is a fine example of Broadway Americana. (Nov 5-7, 12-14, 19-20 - 2004)
  • The annual children's show is "The Fabulous Fable Factory" in which a number of Aesop's fables and related musical numbers are performed. (Feb 18-20, 25-27 - 2005)
  • The spring show is "Our Town," a well-regarded work about lessons of life experienced in a small town setting in early 20th century America. (May 13-15, 20-22 - 2005)
  • The summer show is "Into The Woods," which recounts the interacting adventures of numerous fairy tale characters. It is an original and entertaining musical which has become a well-known favorite. (July 21-24, 28-31 - 2005)

  • "Peter Pan" is the well-known story about a little boy who didn't want to grow up. (March 18-20 - 2005)
  • Ballet Forte will perform "Rebooting Retro" which is a contemporary ballet program. (April 8-10, 15-17 - 2005)
