Pittsburgh Musical Theater is filling its 2019-2020 season with classic musical theater and bringing back a cult favorite.

The 28th season continues production at both the Byham and Gargaro Theaters.

The Byham Theater Series will include two family-friendly shows.

“Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,” as part of the annual collaborative with the CAPA orchestra, will be presented Oct. 24-27.

The ever-popular “The Sound of Music” runs March 5-15, 2020.

Now in its third year, the Rockin’ West End Series at the Gargaro Theater brings back “Evil Dead the Musical” to kick off its season Sept. 27-Oct. 19.

“Hair” will take theater goers back to the 1960s from Jan. 23-Feb. 2.

The season closes with a local regional premiere, the musical adaptation of the Shakespeare classic, “Twelfth Night,” April 30- May 10.

The annual season preview, “Broadway at the Overlook” at the West End Elliot Overlook, is planned for 7:30 p.m. Sept. 4-8.

Free and open to the public, this event features both Pittsburgh Musical Theater’s professional artists and Richard E. Rauh Conservatory students.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail.
