corporate opportunities

Support from corporations allow the Alley’s artistic and outreach programs to thrive. The Alley is Houston’s flagship theatre, serving as a magnet for regional tourism and entertainment with an annual economic impact of $34.5 million.

As a not-for-profit organization, our work is made possible by the outstanding support of Houston's philanthropic community.  We are proud to acknowledge the extraordinary generosity of our corporate contributors by offering unparalleled entertainment and engagement opportunities.

Benefits of Sponsorship

  • Association with Houston’s premier Tony Award-winning theater
  • Connection to an educated, cosmopolitan audience with a high annual household income
  • Production of more than 400 performances a year, greater than any other performing arts venue in the Theater District
  • Entertainment of nearly 200,000 patrons a year reflecting the growing diversity of Greater Houston
  • Involvement of more than 67,000 students through our Education and Community Engagement programs

By aligning with the Alley, our corporate sponsors demonstrate a commitment to civic leadership and gain access to the theater’s unique opportunities for brand exposure, client entertainment and employee engagement. Sponsorships are customized to help achieve marketing and philanthropic objectives through production underwriting, education and community engagement programs, artistic initiatives and special events.
