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 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.

We LOVE the Alley Theatre! We have been season ticket patrons for many years and we really enjoy the diversity that is offered. Year after year we have watched the very talented cast grow as performers. We are so fortunate to have the high quality live theatre that the Alley provides for us year after year.

We really enjoyed seeing the holiday performance of a Christmas Story at the Alley this year. We found it to be well produced & entertaining & the characters all came to life in the familiar story.

During frequent visits to Houston, I've had several opportunities to attend performances at the Alley Theatre. I've enjoyed the variety of performances offered, both on the smaller Neuhaus stage aswell as the Hubbard stage. I've enjoyed some of the holiday shows too, and especially enjoyed looking at the wonderful Christmas trees on display in the Theatre over the past couple of years. What a wonderful tradition.

It's always a treat when we visit the Alley during Houston's Annual Theatre District Day. It's an opportunity to purchase tickets for family shows at reasonable prices. It's a welcoming venue for all.
My 12 year old daughter joined the Young Performers Studio this fall and is receiving
professional lessons in multiple aspects of theatre at a reasonable rate also. She wants to be a writer and I hope that one day she can come back to the Alley and give back to those that are giving her so much.

The Alley Theater is a long standing well respected major cultural arts center for the people of Houston Texas. I know that when I bring my family or friends to a show it will be a magical experience. I can rely on the Alley to always have top notch performances and design talents. My sister took acting lessons there in the 1960's when it was the Theater in the Round, and I have watched it grow over the years to world renown status all while keeping its intimate and charmed atmosphere. The Alley Theater is a true Houston gem.

Our family has a tradition of attending Christmas Carol at The Alley Theater every year. It is a wonderful start to Christmas and we truely enjoy it. Party of the fun is the atmosphrere created with all of the beautiful Christmas tree's in the lobby area. We have enjoyed taking pictures in front of the tree's for our Christmas card. I was honored when I was invited along with other Houston area designers to decorate one of the trees in 2010. It was so much fun and exciting to be part of the tradition we love so much. This year we also saw a young man propose to his beautiful bride to be in front of the biggest tree, it was so sweet. The production is top notch, location in downtown Houston is fantastic and the volunteers and staff are absolutely fabulous. We look forward to many years of this Christmas tradition. Thank you Alley Theater!

I love going to the Alley Theatre. It is a totally different experience and I always come away with a smile on my face. The intimate setting in the small theatre is my favorite because it makes me feel that I am part of the cast and I am totally enthralled by the experience. Riejan

I think the Alley Theatre is my favorite venue to see a play in Houston. The intimate stage setup is very conducive to feeling a part of the performance. The accoustics are so good, even when I have not been as close as I would prefer. The ambiance, the specific plays, all of it is magical. I took my youngest son and his girlfriend to To Kill A Mockingbird a few years back and it lit the seed of what a live performance can do that a film or a book cannot accomplish. I love The Alley!

Some designers that I know got involved in the Tree Decorating at Christmas--it was a rewarding experience for them and I am so glad The Alley offered that opportunity for them.

Perhaps adding some type of food to intermission experience would be a benefit. Perhaps having an earlier opening time would be helpful to some that are coming from the suburbs.

I think this organization is a huge asset to Houston. Katy ISD has a partnership with the Alley Theatre and the Wood group, which makes many workshops, back stage tours, Playwriting 360, and the A-Team opportunities available to our students.

My son is a student at Morton Ranch HS and has been in the theatre dept. there for 3 years. For the last 2 years, he has been exposed to "life at the Alley" through performances, back stage tours, demonstrations, Q&As, and meetings with the directors and actors. This behind the scenes glimpse is something that few have the opportunity to experience and it has been priceless for our kids. The staff is always great and offers honest answers to the kids questions.

It would be wonderful if it were possible for more students/schools to be involved in the priceless piece of theatre education.
