Directions to Theatre @ UH


Workshops can take place at the Alley Theatre or on your school’s campus. In addition to all grade levels, we can also lead workshops for churches, community centers, or any group interested in learning about theatre. Workshops can be as short as an hour or as long as a full day. Residencies are similar to workshops but occur over an extended period of time. Prices range from $85-$125 per class for workshops and residencies.
