Our Mission

Off the Record is a collaboration of unionized members of Southwestern Pennsylvania’s media and theater worlds, who aim to benefit the community while making it laugh.

Held at the Byham Theater since 2001, the annual musical-comedy satirizes local news and newsmakers while focusing on the unique culture of the Pittsburgh region. The Pittsburgh Newspaper Guild/CWA 38061 and Pittsburgh SAG-AFTRA co-sponsor the event, which has raised over $325,000 for the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank.

Other beneficiaries have included the two unions’ scholarship funds, pediatric AIDS research, Hurricane Katrina relief, Gwen’s Girls, Highmark Caring Place and The Pittsburgh Promise.

To donate corporate, foundation or personal funds, or to join our fundraising committee, please contact Emily Pontarelli at emily@dickersongrouppgh.com or 412-201-2331.

Of course the most entertaining way to contribute is to buy tickets and reward yourself with a guaranteed good time laughing at this city we love. Buy tickets here.
