Mission: We are Houston's Alley Theatre, infused with the city's spirit of freedom, its drive to break new ground, its ambition to excel and its belief that nothing is impossible. We exist to bring artists and audiences together to experience the powerful stories that deepen our understanding of ourselves, one another and the world we share. And we believe that the power of those stories is enhanced by our deep commitment to the art of Theatre, to the artists who make it and to an impact that is invariably meaningful.To build upon the success of the Alley's first sixty years, we will assemble the most outstanding and complete creative community under one roof in America by our 70th Anniversary. Our Acting Company, playwrights and directors will be second to none, and they will be attracted in part by the production resources made available to them by outstanding designers, dramaturgs and artisans. The Alley will be a model for theatrical exploration of contemporary ideas and a catalyst for social discourse. We will be recognized internationally for interpreting existing plays boldly and with insight and for bringing forth new writers and plays destined to be the classics of tomorrow. We will be the collaborator of first choice for artists and arts organizations, and we will learn from those exchanges while exporting our work to the nation and the world. In these ways, the Alley will earn recognition as the leader in American Theatre.

You're missing out if you don't see the Alley's plays: a wide variety of classics, new debuts, hilarious, drama, historical, modern, timeless, musical, and just plain weird - all well acted and staged in creative imaginative ways. As an usher I feel privileged to get to meet and greet Alley patrons and enjoy a top show to boot.

I feel honored to have the opportunity to support the Arts in Houston by ushering at the Alley Theater. The Alley is an institution integral to making Houston the world class city it is today.

My son took part in The Alley's Young Performers Studio last summer and he had a fabulous time, made lots of new friends and was part of a spectacular performance at the end.

The productions at the Alley are wide-ranging and always fantastic. The Volunteer Usher program is a great way to work with a great group of people, and stay connected to the Theatre.

The Alley Theatre provided a scholarship to my disabled daughter so she could participate with her peers in their summer enrichment program. My daughter grew so much from her experience and had a good time as well. I was amazed at how caring and giving the staff at the Alley were and impressed with their very organized enrichment program. We can't wait to do it again next summer.
