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. School Programs Manager Andrew Hager 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 and HYPE ROADSHOW. Others have served as ushers or members of the A-Team Youth Council (now the Alley Youth Company). 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.
For the 2013-2014 school year, the Alley Theatre’s official Partnership Schools are:
Carnegie Vanguard High School (Houston ISD)
Humble High School (Humble ISD)
Lee High School (Houston ISD)
Reagan High School (Houston ISD)
