Eat dinner with the dancers. Mingle with artists before the show at our pre-show Picnic in the Park! Head to the VIP tent for wine and dinner by DiAnoia’s Eatery, voted one of Pittsburgh’s best new restaurants by Pittsburgh Magazine. Tickets, which cost $60 for adults and $20 for kids, benefit repertory, scholarships and community education programs.

Or, pack your own picnic. Whether it’s wine and cheese or a full supper spread, Hartwood Acres is the perfect place to enjoy a picnic with your performance experience. If you prefer to travel light, visit one of Hartwood Acre’s featured food trucks and bring a bite back to your blanket.
