Join us for the 2023 Alley Ball, Bordering On The Fantastic: Alley Theatre Salutes Sherlock Holmes, on Saturday, April 22, 2023 at The Post Oak Hotel at Uptown Houston. This special evening will be filled with theatrical mystery, delectable cuisine, and one-of-a-kind auction items as we honor the incredible contributions of Cynthia A. Petrello and celebrate the inspiring work of Alley Theatre. We promise a night that will be anything other than “elementary!”

Celebrations like these ensure that the best live theatre continues to thrive in our city and the proceeds from the evening will sustain the Theatre’s artistic, education, and community engagement programs.
