Iron Horse Theatre Company's Mission:

 

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. 

A letter to Steeler Nation:

Dear Steeler Nation,
 

In September 2021, The Iron Horse Theatre Company will perform the play 12:52 The Mike Webster Story and donate half the proceeds to the Webster family. 
 

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 and help keep the memory of“Iron Mike" alive by ensuring his important story gets told.

 

Please consider donating $52.00 (in honor of  "Iron Mike's" number 52), or any amount that you can, to help us produce this important play.  Your donation is tax deductible. Any amount you give is invaluable and very much appreciated.

Please lend a helping hand 

 

Last February we did a “Come Together” Beatles Review at the Iron Horse Community Theatre.  Based on what is happening in the world today, we could not have chosen a more appropriate theme.

 

Unfortunately, the current social distancing conditions due to the coronavirus, have caused us to put on hold all of our children's programs, events, and shows for our 2020 season. Like any business that is forced to shut down because of this crisis, we are going to struggle. The fact is, we may have little or no opportunities to create revenue for our community theatre in 2020 and beyond. I am deeply saddened and concerned that we may lose all that we worked so hard to create.  

 

Won't you please consider donating to our nonprofit theatre company? Your donation will help keep our programs, events, plays and musicals alive through these difficult times.

 

Thank you so much for your consideration and support.

 2021 Season

 

We have an amazing season planned for you. In June 2021 we will be performing Over the River and Through the Woods. It is a warm-hearted, boisterously funny, and touching story about intergenerational relationships, deep familial love, and the inevitable little heartbreaks that occur as time passes and children grow. The play is about a young, carefree, single bachelor in New Jersey named Nick. He spends nearly every Sunday afternoon visiting and dining with either of his two sets of grandparents, who are ethnic Italians. 

 

Our September play, 12:52 The Mike Webster Story, written by Ross Howard,  is a very touching story about friendship and courage. If ever there was a story that captures the grit, determination, and strength of the human character this is it.  This play is performed at the New Hazlett Theater on the North Side.

 

Then in November we will be back at the Iron Horse Community Theatre performing The Boys Next Door. It is a two-act comedy-drama about four intellectually disabled men who live together in a small apartment — and Jack, the caring social worker who is on the verge of career burn-out.

 

We finish our season in December with a holiday musical (to be announced at a later time. 

 

Season tickets for the 2021 season go on sale beginning in January 2020. Thank you for your support.
