Deck The Trees

A season of Giving

2017 CO-Chairs: Roger D. Aksamit, Maria Wyckoff Boyce, and Mark Allan Smith

Holiday Trees displayed November 24, 2017 through January 2, 2018

This year the Alley Theatre presents Deck the Trees . . . A Season of Giving.  While Deck the Trees has been a favorite Houston holiday tradition for the past decade, we have expanded the event to serve as both a recovery and sustainability event supporting the renovation of the theatre while also funding the Alley’s educational and artistic endeavors.

  This annual tradition brings new and longstanding supporters together to celebrate the myriad of gifts that the theatre infuses into the lives of young people and those young at heart.  The Deck the Trees Celebration will transform the Alley Theatre lobby into a winter wonderland of trees, festively decorated by Houston’s leading designers and sponsored by generous businesses and individuals.

So please join us for this very special Season of Giving as we Deck the Trees at the Alley Theatre for the 11th consecutive year!
