During the summer of 2009, I interned with the Education & Community Engagement department. In addition to administrative duties, I assisted with the HYPE (Houston Young Playwright Exchange)and YPS (Young Performers Studio) programs. The quality of both of these programs is excellent. The student playwrights involved in HYPE were supported by highly qualified one-on-one mentors and benefited from guest artists before seeing their works staged for the community. The younger students involved in YPS had excellent, dedicated teaching professionals who guided them through a variety of teambuilding and skillbuilding activities such as improvisation, drama incorporated with music, shadow puppet construction, as well as many other activities. From the start, I felt welcomed by all members of the Alley and appreciated their collaboration and support for one another. I would love the opportunity to work with the Alley again!
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
friendly, knowledgeable, and highly qualified.
