The Impact of Your Gift
This spring, our actors and teaching artists toured more than 36 Houston-area schools with Oskar and the Thunderous Thingamabob, a play that we commissioned in response to Hurricane Harvey and its impact on the community. This high-energy Alley production told stories of grit and resilience, teaching more than 25,000 students K-5 how to cope with stress and bounce back after crisis.
“The most gratifying feeling is watching kids have fun while learning. We hope that after every show, the kids walk away with the building blocks necessary to help build the future we all want for them.”
-Gabe Regojo, actor in the 2017-2018 Oskar Character Education Series
