Our May 20 lineup:
Headliner: Matt Wohlfarth - Matt is a 32-year veteran of stand-up comedy. He has written for many national comedians and his work has been featured on Broadway, in the Los Angeles Times, Reader's Digest and Forbes.

She has performed in the Whiskey Bear Comedy Festival, Charm City Comedy Festival, Lookout Festival, World Series of Comedy, Burning Bridges Comedy Festival and is a regular at the Arcade Comedy Theater.
Feature: Shannon Norman - John Fetterman in long pants. Shannon is a comedian and tv personality who is a member of the "race to the coffin" comedy tour. That tour was put together by him and a few other guys in town who all have edgier and less-than-healthy persona's on stage at least, if not also in real-life. Shannon has become one of the few tried and true comedians to come out of the Pittsburgh scene, and numbers among those who don't just call Pittsburgh home, but live here still.
Host: Amanda Averell - Born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Amanda Averell is a stand up comedian, writer, producer, co-owner of the Burning Bridges Comedy Club, actor, educator, coach & improviser. Her quick wit, unique perspective & self deprecating sense of humor have made Amanda a rising comic to watch and a festival favorite.

You don’t want to miss our next concert of the 2022 Iron Horse Theatre Company Concert Series. On May 21 we have a true soul R&B songstress from Boston, Kim Tavares!
Last March, six of her songs were on Amazon’s U.K. Top 100 New Releases, and her album was number four on Amazon’s U.K. Hot New Releases R&B album chart. A few of her singles even hit the charts in November 2020. You may already have heard of Tavares: in 2018, a video of her and fellow Boston Officer Stephen McNulty singing God Bless America in “cop pool karaoke” went viral. Since then, Tavares has sung the national anthem at numerous local sporting events, and was even invited to appear on Good Morning America and to sing with Brad Paisley at his local show.
So, come out and enjoy the smell of fresh flowers and the candlelight ambiance at the beautiful Iron Horse Community Theatre. Enjoy a glass of wine and enjoy the amazing voice and music of Kim Tavares! This concert will be another relaxing, romantic and memorable concert event will leave you singing and wanting more.
COVID-19 PROTOCOL AT THE IRON HORSE COMMUNITY THEATRE
Currently, COVID-19 mitigation measures have been lifted in Pennsylvania. This allows us to open our theatre and seat at full capacity (60 seats). However, there are some things we all need to be aware of. Being in crowds like in restaurants, bars, fitness centers, or theaters puts you at higher risk for COVID-19. To lesson the risks, the Iron Horse Community Theatre allows for fresh air to circulate as often as possible by opening all windows and doors before and after every show. To block out any outside noise and to air condition the theatre, all windows and doors are closed during the show. Although we have a good ventilation system, we added two heavy-duty air purifiers in the theatre and set them to run before, during, and after every show. The following protocols are also currently in place at the Iron Horse Community Theatre:
• If you are fully vaccinated, you do not need to wear a mask in the theatre. However, keep in mind that you are in a theatre. The CDC still advises
people to wear a mask while in any crowded indoor space, even if you are fully vaccinated. We are allowing patrons who are fully vaccinated to make their own personal choice in regard to this
• If you are not fully vaccinated, you are required to wear a mask while inside the theatre.
• If you are fully vaccinated and have a condition or are taking medications that weaken your immune system, you should keep taking steps to protect yourself, like wearing a mask. Talk to your healthcare provider about steps you can take to manage your health and risks.
• We would like to ask all patrons to please wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. We provide soap and hand sanitizer for all patrons at the theatre.
As official health and safety guidelines evolve regarding COVID-19, the Iron Horse Theatre Company may need to change some or all of the above protocols. Please check back the day of the show to see if any protocols have changed. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding in following these guidelines.
The mission of the Iron Horse Theatre Company is to provide thought provoking and entertaining theater that will enrich the cultural life in what is now known as the "rust belt" area of southwestern Pennsylvania. We will provide the people of this community the opportunity to not only attend, but also to participate in quality presentations and theatrical works. The symbolic name, "Iron Horse" represents the hard-working and "iron-willed" people in this part of the world. It is in this spirit that we will create theatrical experiences that celebrate the grit, determination, and strength of the human character.
Your patronage and generous donations go directly to supporting this worthy mission. If you would rather give of your time please scroll to the bottom of the page and fill out the volunteering form.
