A New Artistic Adventure

Welcome to the IRT’s 51st Season! We are looking forward to celebrating this season with Margot Lacy Eccles Artistic Director Benjamin Hanna and Managing Director Suzanne Sweeney at the helm. We look forward to welcoming our community of audiences, donors, volunteers, staff and artists, while also extending our reach to welcome new audiences to our work.

help support IRT For Generations To Come

As a nonprofit theatre, the IRT relies on generous donors to cover nearly half of our production and programming costs. Donations of all sizes allow world-class theatre to continue on the IRT’s stages.

"I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing at least 20 different shows at the IRT. From hilarious farce comedies that bring laughter for days to heavy and poignant dramatic episodes that make you ponder… each and every performance is memorable in its own way."
