In June we will perform the world premiere play, The Golden RoseThe Golden Rose, written by London Cain, is an unforgettable story almost too implausible to be true, but it really happened.


The Harmonists were part of a religious utopian society founded by George Rapp. The Harmoist followed a simple, pietistic lifestyle. The turned over everthing they owned to the Harmony society when they became members. They practiced celibacy to purify themselves for the Messiah's second coming, which they expected to happen during their lifetime. Everyone worked together for the good of the society and received, in turn, what he or she needed to live simply and comfortably. However, their society was not as harmonious as the outside world was led to believe. Underneath this harmonious exterior, was a very divided and disgruntled community.


When a man (Count de Leon) who claimed to be the Messiah was invited, along with his entourage, into their so-called heavenly community, all hell would break loose. The Harmonists would have to make a choice. Will George Rapp remain the prophet and leader of this utopian society, or will Count de Leon be accepted as the Messiah, and become the Harmonists new leader?


The decisions they made determined the future of their society and the area we call Ambridge today. Don't miss this incredible play in June 2024 as we kick-off the bicentennial of Old Economy.

We have an amazing 2024 season lined up for you at the Iron Horse Community Theatre.


In June we will perform the world premiere play, The Golden Rose. The Golden Rose, written by London Cain, is an intriguing story about a 19th century religious group called the Harmonists. The Harmonists tried to create a utopian society in the nearby area called, Old Economy. This suspenseful true story will educate, surprise, shock, and entertain you.


Then in August we perform a play called, Painting Churches. Painting Churches, written by Tina Howe, was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.  The play is about the relationship between an artist daughter and her aging parents. 


In October we will be performing, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, written by Simon Stephens. This award-winning play is based on the Mark Haddon novel of the same name. The story is about a 15-year-old mathematical genius with an autism spectrum disorder who tries to solve the mystery surrounding the death of his neighbor’s poodle. 


In December we finish our season with, A Holiday Celebration. It is musical sing-along and a series of three holiday one-act plays that include, “The gift of the Magi” by Thomas Hischak, “The First Night of Chanukah” by Sheri Wilner, and “Starman Wish Me Luck” by Nicole J. Burton. 


 You can purchase a season pass for $70.00. That is a $10.00 savings. Buy them for yourself or get one for someone you know.  Our event passes make the perfect birthday or holiday gift.
