Theater: The Hollywood Special Effects Show, Byham Theater

PITTSBURGH CULTURAL TRUST ANNOUNCES

THE HOLLYWOOD SPECIAL EFFECTS SHOW:
DANGEROUSLY EXCITING

FEBRUARY 5 | 7:30 PM | BYHAM THEATER

PITTSBURGH – The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust announces a theatrical experience like no other, The Hollywood Special Effects Show, will play at the Byham Theater, 101 6th Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15206, on February 5th at 7:30 p.m. The Hollywood Special Effects show is presented as part of the Cohen & Grigsby Trust Presents series.

Audiences will be able to get closer to the action than ever before as this interactive and explosive family show goes behind the scenes of many favorite blockbuster films to discover the science and secrets of creating movie magic. Live on stage, the show’s team will give revealing insight into the world of special effects, taking families on an exciting journey as they feel the heat of an onstage inferno, marvel at gruesome sci-fi monsters, are blown away by apocalyptic weather and hold on tight through huge explosions.

The Hollywood Special Effects Show uses more pyrotechnics than any other touring theatre show, and for some sequences, the audience is protected by bullet proof glass placed across the stage. The animatronic dinosaur that appears in the show was built by specialists in Japan, and the large air cannon used in the finale is capable of firing a projectile over an incredible 1500 feet!

Tickets (starting at $25) are available at the following official Pittsburgh Cultural Trust ticket sources: online at TrustArts.org, by calling Guest Services at 412-456-6666, or in person at Theater Square Box Office, 655 Penn Avenue.

Pittsburgh Cultural Trust
The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust has overseen one of Pittsburgh’s most historic transformations: turning a seedy red-light district into a magnet destination for arts lovers, residents, visitors, and business owners.  Founded in 1984, the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust is a non-profit arts organization whose mission is the cultural and economic revitalization of a 14-block arts and entertainment/residential neighborhood called the Cultural District.  The District is one of the country’s largest land masses “curated” by a single nonprofit arts organization.  A major catalytic force in the city, the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust is a unique model of how public-private partnerships can reinvent a city with authenticity, innovation and creativity.  Using the arts as an economic catalyst, the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust has holistically created a world-renowned Cultural District that is revitalizing the city, improving the regional economy and enhancing Pittsburgh’s quality of life.  Thanks to the support of foundations, corporations, government agencies and thousands of private citizens, the Trust stands as a national model of urban redevelopment through the arts. www.TrustArts.org
