All IRT patrons attending public performances must continue to show a photo ID and proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 PCR test (administered no more than 72 hours prior to the performance), in addition to wearing a mask. This is consistent with the commitments we have made with our artists, staff, and audiences to ensure their safety. 
For Steel Magnolias, we will allow concessions in the Theatre, and the balcony seating area will now be a mask-optional area. Please see our full Health & Safety information and policies on our FAQs page.

This show was first class all the way, with wonderful, delightful child actors (the two adults were engaging as well)! Although IRT is synonymous with quality, this youth production was endearing and rewarding. The two Potter siblings (pictured above) were worth twice the price of admission alone.

I had the most wonderful afternoon! It was lovely, funny and great fun for all ages!!! AND the show opened with the magnificent Millicent Wright engaging us all to eat our vegetables (how can you refuse when this fabulous actress extols us on vegetable virtues) HA!! Bring your children and grandchildren. It is well done, indeed!

My five year old daughter and I absolutely loved the performance!

Very well done. It was so cute. My 5 year old granddaughter was delighted. The cast did such a good job and it was fun to see the children perform...and so well.
