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.
Dear Steeler Nation,
In June 2020, The Iron Horse Theatre Company will perform the play
12:52 The Mike Webster Story and donate half the proceeds to the Webster family. The other half will go toward production costs of the play, and to support the many free children’s programs, and other theater
productions and events provided by the Iron Horse Theatre Company; a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization.
Mike Webster, who died in 2002, was the first N.F.L. player to receive a diagnosis of chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or C.T.E. This degenerative brain disease is linked to repeated hits to the head.
Mike gave so much of himself to the Steeler organization, the city of Pittsburgh, and to Steeler fans everywhere. We are looking for Steeler Nation to come together to help the family of one of our fallen stars.
Won’t you please help keep the memory of“Iron Mike" alive by ensuring his important story gets told. Again, half the proceeds from this play will go to Mike's former wife and children. Please consider donating $52.00 (in honor of "Iron Mike's" number 52), or any amount that you can, to this worthy cause. Your donation is tax deductible. Any amount you give is invaluable and very much appreciated.

In December 2019 we finish our season with an exhilarating, profound, and hilarious play called Greetings! by Tom Dudzick. Greetings! is a play about the Gorski family; a sweet Catholic mother, a sour Catholic father, and an intellectually disabled younger son named Mickey. Set in a working-class Pittsburgh neighborhood, the family awaits the Christmas visit of eldest son Andy. Andy, a cynical New York advertising type, brings home his fiancée, Randi, for the first time. In the Gorski household, arguing seems to be as hallowed a holiday tradition as the nativity set, and Randi’s introduction that his fiancée is not only Jewish, but an atheist - sets the stage for this very funny and heartwarming play.
The show dates are as follows: December 6, 7, 13, 14, 15, 20, 21. All show times start at 7:30 except the Sunday matinee on December 15. The Sunday Matinee show time is 2:00.
Tickets: $15.00 / $13.00 seniors and students
Art, Music, Dance, and Acting classes
