Ballet Under the Stars sets the stage for Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre’s 50th Anniversary Season with a free, al fresco performance on Sun., Aug. 18, at beautiful Hartwood Acres park. Here are 5 ways to maximize your Ballet Under the Stars experience.
Early birds have the most fun. Soak up some fun in the sun before kicking back for Ballet Under the Stars. Festivities begin at 5 p.m. with food trucks and free family fun, including craft and dance activities, photo ops with costumed dancers, a ballerina dress-up station and more! Plus, spread your blanket, set up your chairs and claim a prime performance spot!
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 drinks and dinner. 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.
Don’t be afraid to dance along. Sit back, relax and let the music move you. The combination of fresh air, open sky and inspiring art never fails to bring audience members to their feet – or get them swaying in their seats!
