We're coming back.
After more than a year of being dark, we're thrilled to announce our return to the stage with August Wilson's How I Learned What I Learned. In this one-man show, Wilson takes us on a journey through his days as a young poet: his first few jobs, a stint in jail, the support of his lifelong friends, and his encounters with racism, music, and love as a struggling writer in Pittsburgh’s Hill District.

THE STATE OF THE 5 & DIME
The 5 & Dime is returning to its nomadic roots.
There’s no doubt about it: COVID-19 has impacted all of us in so many different ways. As we’ve continued to monitor the situation, it’s clear that The 5 & Dime must evolve to meet the unique needs of our new reality. Thankfully, we are no strangers to transformation, and our resolve to press on is as strong as ever.
With these facts and our mission in mind, we’ve determined that the best way to move forward in these unprecedented times is to return to our roots as a nomadic theatre company while continuing to plan for our eventual return to a more permanent space when the time is right.
When we reflect on the core of who we are and what we feel called to do, we are confident this is the right decision. We all must rise to meet this moment and this is how our small, nonprofit community theatre with big hopes and dreams can begin to do that. To be honest, we see this as an exciting opportunity to express even more creativity and have a bit more fun with our shows and settings!
We look forward to your continued partnership as we enter this new, yet still familiar phase of our story.
