“The Alley Partnership Program enhances the creative writing curriculum and provides Reagan High School students with invaluable opportunities and exposure to professional writers and actors. This is our sixth year in partnership with the Alley and the programs have put Reagan on a national stage through Slam Poets @ Alley Theatre and allowed our students to showcase their creative talents throughout the city of Houston. The programs offered not only support essential TEKS, but also helps educators in their own craft.”

Tap into to the resources of a professional theatre with an Alley Theatre School Partnership!
With the guidance of the Alley Theatre’s Education Department, you will craft an arts education experience that complements the academic work done in the classroom. Partnership schools have access to the broad slate of workshops that the Education Department offers, as well as exclusive partnership school programs ̶ including Playwriting 360° and Slam Poets @ Alley Theatre. If you are interested in designing your own arts education curriculum, the Alley will work with you to craft a program that specifically addresses your needs.
The Alley will also have deep personal involvement with your school. Alley staff members will visit your school for monthly check-ins to discuss the progress of your partnership. Other benefits include discounted tickets to select Alley Theatre performances, backstage tours and a Partnership Dinner to conclude the school year.
Many teens from our partner schools have gone on to participate in audition-only programs at the Alley like the Alley Conservatory. When you decide to become an Alley Theatre partnership school, you are enhancing the cultural and artistic life on your campus as well as cultivating a life-long love of theatre for your students.
