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.
We have an amazing season planned for you. In September we will perform the play, 12:52 The Mike Webster Story at the New Hazlett Theater on the Northside (6 Allegheny Square E, Pittsburgh, PA 15212). The play is written by Ross Howard. It 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.
Then in November we will be back at the Iron Horse Community Theatre 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.
We finish our season in December with A Holiday Cabaret! This show will feature local singers, dancers, musicians and comedians. The cabaret will be a very fun and entertaining way to finish out the year. It is sure to bring joy and laughter to everyone who attends.
Season tickets for the 2021 season go on sale beginning in January 2020. Thank you for your support.
