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.

Irondale was born out of a dream that started with Jim, Terry and Barbara, but it has grown much further than that. It affected other artists and collaborators, it got the attention of donors and foundations and, most importantly, it has reached you – our audience! We are humbled to see that the art we create still makes sense to you as it does to us. And we can't wait to see where the future will take us!

While we are still creating such a future, watch this video to hear what our founders and directors Terry and Jim have to say about how and why Irondale came to be what it is today - and what has been for the past 40 years. 
Don’t let us stop now! Donate today and keep supporting this grassroots ensemble theatre company.

NEWS & EVENTS

What's on Jim's Mind
