Irondale Ensemble


About the Organization
Irondale is a theatre company – essentially, a performance think tank — that brings together artists who collaborate over long periods of time, who speak a common performance language and who believe that theatre can educate as well as entertain. Our theatre can become a classroom and classrooms we enter can become theatres. Through our performances and programs we ask questions and continually question the answers. We ask our audiences to come with us to unaccustomed, difficult or even uncomfortable places. The journey to those places can range from Brecht to Marx (Groucho, not Karl), from history to myth and from the rigorous disciplines of the artist to the disciplined improvisations of the child.

About the Program

Junior Company is back in session!  Our middle school ensemble, for ages 10-13, is a junior version of our teen ensemble, Irondale’s Young Company.  Students will learn the essentials of theatrical stagecraft, including: character development, relationship building, improvisation, acting, movement and space work, design, playwriting, directing, and game play. Each session will culminate in a final project: tailored to the group’s interests and unique dynamics.
