Alley Conservatory 2022 is a 5-week program for high school students (rising freshmen through recently graduated seniors). Students will study with some of the best actors, directors, and playwrights the Alley Theatre has to offer. Together with other talented young artists, students will take classes and create a theatre piece that culminates in a public performance. 

Tuition for Alley Conservatory is $1,750. Limited scholarships are available, and applications are accepted during the audition video submission process. 

Alley Conservatory 2021 will be held July 11 - August 13, in-person at the Alley Theatre: 615 Texas Avenue, Houston, Texas 77002.

Conservatory Showcase: SHIFT/CHANGE

A bold theatre piece devised by Conservatory students.
FRIDAY, August 12 at 7:00 P.M. 
sATURDAY, AUGUST 13 AT 2:00p.m.

Both silly and moving, Shift/Change explores the importance of our past - and how critical it is for our future. 

This show is the culmination of Alley Theatre’s five-week Conservatory, which led 25 students through the process of devising a work of theatre. Over a five-week period, students explored the questions, “Whose shoulders do I/we stand on?” and, “Which of their lessons have I/we forgotten?” Additionally, they honed their skills in classes lead by an array of professional theatre makers – allowing them to grow as performers and ensemble members.  

For group of 10 or more, please contact Elena Valladolid-Rivera to finalize your reservation.
