The Hillman Center for Performing Arts is a multi-stage performing arts venue on the campus of Shady Side Academy’s Senior School in Fox Chapel, a northern suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Featuring dedicated music and vocal practice spaces, the Richard E. Rauh proscenium theater, and the Peter J. Kountz black box theater, the Hillman Center serves as Shady Side Academy’s primary performing arts classroom. Additionally, undertaking the development of a professional performing arts series in the fall of 2006, the Hillman Center also serves the community as a public performing arts venue, whose programming goal is to feature “The Best of Pittsburgh and the World.” The Hillman Center’s artistic niche strives to support not only Shady Side Academy’s curriculum but also the Pittsburgh community. Featuring traditional offerings (such as symphony and orchestral music, classical dance, and opera) and world music and culture performances, the Hillman Center offers globally diverse arts programming to the regional community. International performers celebrate the diverse ethnic and national communities of Pittsburgh and help connect the audience to the rest of the world.
