Education & Community Engagement

Rob Askins visits HSPVA


Applied Theatre at the Alley’s Middle and High School programs use theatre as a tool to challenge students’ understanding of current events, create teen-citizens capable of empathetic understanding and multiple points of view, and explore and embrace fundamental questions with which we all wrestle. We are able to offer an array of exciting and impactful workshops and residencies that are designed for distance and online learning.

Opportunites include:

♦ First Draft (personal Narrative)
♦ Monologue 360
♦ Playwrighting
♦ Shakespeare
♦ Slam Poetry
♦ Acting with the Resident Acting Company
♦ Workshops with Alley Production Staff
♦ Customized programming to fit your needs

Virtual Slam

Featured Program

Slam Poetry in the Virtual World

Your students have something important to say. Help them find their voice.

Led by some of the region’s most talent Slam Poets, we help students learn essential writing skills, explore the art of performance, nurture their dynamic voices, and explore empathy. Lessons are conducted via live Zoom classes and asynchronous videos - and each residency culminates in a Poetry Slam competition customized for your school.

Contact us to find out how we enhance your curriculum and provide students with an unparalleled experience.
