Who we Are

We are a theater of people, an ensemble of citizen/artists, not an institution.

We exist to make important, challenging, demanding and, above all, entertaining theatre and we have been doing it since 1983.

What we Do

We are committed to taking on “impossible” projects, on stage and in the community. The kind that scare us a little bit and challenge us a lot. We present work that speaks to what is happening in the world now—today, no matter when it was written.

We reach out to the extended community of international theatre-makers, and pass on the torch through learning and community engagement programs. These are  designed to ensure that this very important venture becomes as significant to the next generation of artists, of collaborators, of audiences and of citizens, as it is to us.

What our Audiences are Saying

Just walking into this creative space filled me with energy, reminded me of the need for such spaces in our communities, and caused me to pause and reflect on the"possible." Irondale Center through dialogue invests time talent and resources into a vision of community that is contagious!

...a place where audiences and artists matter.

Beautiful space. Great community driven programming. A gem of a theatre.

We experience a great pleasure every time we have come to Irondale . Irondale is a celebration of the art and humanity.

Our Programs

Irondale offers a variety of learning and program opportunities.  We are constantly looking for ways to bring all of the programmatic pieces, including the various educational programs, into a closer and more unified entity. Much of this can already be seen in our various projects. The school programs, after school classes, the young company, our  program  and the police/community project To Protect Serve and Understand are all led by Irondale actors and artists.

Support our Cause

What happens at Irondale transforms peoples’ ideas about what theater is, what it means and what it does. You know how much we depend on you. You, our audience, our friends, the families of the students we teach, provide the vital fuel we need to keep pushing boundaries-on the stage or in the street.

Whatever you feel comfortable giving goes a long way towards keeping the stage lights lit and the creative juices flowing, Whether you have been with us since 1983 or you just came on board, we are proud to have your support. Come with us into season 39. There are great things in store.
