WHY THE ARTS?

The arts gets us thinking deeply, makes us laugh, causes us to question the world as it is, helps to build a diverse community international awareness, beautifies our world & nurtures our spirits. These are but a few ways that the arts makes our lives that much richer.

Pitt Night with the Ballet for The Great Gatsby is on Friday, February 15, 2019.
Ticket prices start at $20.
Rediscover the revelry and recklessness of the Roaring ‘20s in Jorden Morris’ poignant restaging of The Great Gatsby. In the summer of 1922 a romance rekindles between two of the Long Island elite: married Daisy Buchanan and mysterious Jay Gatsby. Morris brings F. Scott Fitzgerald’s drama to life with emotive dancing, an original Carl Davis score, and cinematic sets that draw audiences into Gatsby’s exclusive soirees. At the heart of this story is a man who, beneath the glitz and glamor, sees love as his guiding light to the American dream.
