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.
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.
For more information, please check out the following sites:
“Come Together” Beatles Review! A Beatles tribute act will perform the Beatles biggest hits. The band plays everything live and uses costumes and multimedia content to bring the music of the Beatles to life. The money raised goes toward producing 12:52 The Mike Webster Story.
The show dates are January 31, February 1, 7, and 8.
Doors open at 7:00 pm. Shows begins at 7:30 pm.
All tickets are only $10.00.

We have an amazing season planned for you. In June 2020 we will be performing 12:52 The Mike Webster Story, 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. This play is performed at the New Hazlett Theater on the North Side.
Then in July 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.
Our September/October play, Over the River and Through the Woods 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. 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.
We finish our season with School of Rock The Musical, with music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, lyrics by Glenn Slater and a book by Julian Fellowes. This very funny story is about a wannabe rock star who decides to earn an extra bit of cash by posing as a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school. There he turns a class of straight–A pupils into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mind-blowing rock band.
Season tickets for the 2020 season go on sale beginning in January 2020. Thank you for your support.
