Romeo and Juliet Written for the Kirov Ballet more than 70 years ago, Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet is considered one of the most beautiful pieces of music of the 20th century and is as timeless as Shakespeare's play. One of the greatest compositions created for the ballet stage, Prokofiev's sublime work captures the spirit and essence of literature's most popular romantic tragedy.
Professor Nicolas Petrov, who is retiring after more than four decades at Point Park University, first choreographed Romeo and Juliet for the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre in October 1971 at Heinz Hall. It was the first American production of Sergei Prokofiev's work. Petrov concludes his remarkable tenure at the university with another memorable production of the famous ballet.

The Alchemists' Lab Under the master tutelage of seriously funny playwright, filmmaker and storyteller, Gab Cody, Point Park students are creating a work never before seen anywhere. Ever. This amalgamation of wild characters, intricate storylines and stand-up humor is loosely based on Ben Johnson's comedy, The Alchemist, written in 1610, and twisted into a more contemporary satire. The wildly creative mind of Cody, a Point Park alum, fuels a theatrical experience not to be missed.
