Iron Horse Theatre Company’s first play of the season is Terrence McNally’s Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune. It is a warm, romantic and humorous story about the promise of a relationship beyond a "one-night stand."
Cain is middle school reading teacher at Moon Area School District where he heads the drama program. Cain said he was inspired by the book Rust Belt Boy, written by Paul Hertneky, and determined that Ambridge, with its rich history in industry, culture, and diversity would be the best place for the community theatre. “It is a great location off of 4 th Street and very close to Ohio River Blvd. that allows the residents of Ambridge, Moon, Coraopolis, Sewickley, Leetsdale, Baden, and other adjacent communities easy travel to the theatre."
"You do not have to be a member of the company to attend, volunteer, help produce, and perform in any of our theatrical productions" shared Cain added.
Cain shared why Iron Horse and said , “The name is symbolic. It represents the hard-working and ‘iron-willed’ people who have lived in this area for generations. We want to create theatrical experiences that celebrate the grit, determination, and strength of the human character. That is something the people in this part of the world can relate to.”
