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.

The Alley has been working at my high school all year. The Alley has sent teaching artists to teach my acting class, they performed a one woman show, and they conducted a playwriting contest and chose one of our student's plays to read at the Alley. They invited 60 of our students to attend plays at the Alley. This has been a thorough Alley experience for Reagan.
