101 Sixth Street | 10 am to 4 pm


Participants will experience the historic restoration of the Byham Theater, including the original tile “Gayety” sign on the vestibule floor, clear lamps representing the advent of indoor electricity, faux marble painted columns and period sculptures in the lobbies and auditorium.

Proof of vaccination and photo ID are required for entry to this building, which is owned and presented by the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust.  Please review Cultural Trust guidance for complete details before you arrive.


Originally built in 1903 as the Gayety Theater, The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust purchased this 1300-seat venue, then called the Fulton Theater, in 1988.

The Trust renovated and reopened the Fulton Theater in 1991. The theater was renamed the Byham Theater in 1995, in recognition of a gift from William C. and Carolyn M. Byham.

Today, the Byham Theater is home to a wide variety of performing arts, including dance, music, theater, film, and family-friendly events held throughout the year.
