irondale's 40th anniversary gala



Every year we celebrate people whose work and values reflect our own as a company and inspire us to do better.
The presentation of the M. Edgar Rosenblum Award is our way of acknowledging these individuals who make our world a little more beautiful.

We are Inspired. And because of that we hope to Inspire others.

IRONDALE EXISTS AT THE INTERSECTION OF ART, EDUCATION AND SOCIAL JUSTICE.

Your support helps us move forward with programs such as:

YOUR SUPPORT MAKES IT POSSIBLE

SUPPORT

Your gift will support: the next big Ensemble production, our Youth Programs and To Protect, Serve and Understand - the groundbreaking program where police officers and civilians learn to communicate through theatre. And because we believe that art is so necessary to the life and health of a community we will make all tickets as close to being FREE, as we possibly can. New York City budget cuts have taken a chunk out of our budget and the only way we can make them up at this point in the year is with your help.

Please make a tax-deductible donation to Irondale today.
