In August we perform the off-Broadway hit musical, The Mad Ones. 

Mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved...
18-year-old Samantha Brown sits in a hand-me-down car with the keys clutched in her hand. Caught between a yearning for the unknown and feeling bound by expectation, she telescopes back to a time before her world had fallen apart. As she relives her senior year, we meet Sam’s well-intentioned helicopter mother Bev and her high school sweetheart of a boyfriend Adam, but it’s her painfully alive best friend Kelly that haunts her. Kelly was everything Sam is not – impetuous and daring. She pushed Sam to break rules and do the unexpected. When Kelly is killed in a car wreck, Sam loses not only her best friend but also the part of herself that was learning to be brave. Now, Sam has to make a decision: Will she follow her mother’s dreams for her, or will she summon the courage to drive away from her friends and family into a future she can’t imagine?

Currently, COVID-19 mitigation measures have been lifted in Pennsylvania. This allows us to open our theatre and seat at full capacity (60 seats). However, there are some things we all need to be aware of. Being in crowds like in restaurants, bars, fitness centers, or theaters puts you at higher risk for COVID-19. To lesson the risks, the Iron Horse Community Theatre allows for fresh air to circulate as often as possible by opening all windows and doors before and after every show. To block out any outside noise and to air condition the theatre, all windows and doors are closed during the show. Although we have a good ventilation system, we added two heavy-duty air purifiers in the theatre and set them to run before, during, and after every show. The following protocols are also currently in place at the Iron Horse Community Theatre:

•    If you are fully vaccinated, you do not need to wear a mask in the theatre. However, keep in mind that you are in a theatre. The CDC still advises people to wear a mask while in any crowded indoor space, even if you are fully vaccinated.  We are allowing patrons who are fully vaccinated to make their own personal choice in regard to this matter. 
•    If you are not fully vaccinated, you are required to wear a mask while inside the theatre.
•    If you are fully vaccinated and have a condition or are taking medications that weaken your immune system, you should keep taking steps to protect yourself, like wearing a mask. Talk to your healthcare provider about steps you can take to manage your health and risks.
•    We would like to ask all patrons to please wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. We provide soap and hand sanitizer for all patrons at the theatre. 


As official health and safety guidelines evolve regarding COVID-19, the Iron Horse Theatre Company may need to change some or all of the above protocols. Please check back the day of the show to see if any protocols have changed. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding in following these guidelines.
