How do I become a sponsor of an event, reception, or entire series?

Put our national award-winning public relations, marketing, and special events team to work on your behalf. Whether it's a company, organization, family, or individual, we can develop a partnership that will prominently display your name in written media, Rock Magazine, websites, playbills, radio, television, and signage. Depending on the level of donation, we can even name the series for you. Call the Director of Special Events at 724-738-4499 to set up an appointment.

Are young children allowed at the performances?

Every attendee must have a ticket, no matter the age of the child. We ask adults to supervise their young children closely and request that they leave the "house" area if a child becomes fidgety or noisy.

Are you handicapped accessible?

The University Union is an older venue that has been modified to accommodate wheelchairs. We have a limited amount of wheelchair spaces. To increase the likelihood of obtaining these seats, we encourage you to call early and clearly identify your needs. We also have reserved front row seating for our visually impaired patrons. At this time we do not have the equipment to assist patrons with hearing difficulty.
