About Alleyway

Alleyway Theatre Inc. is a non-profit corporation founded in September 1980 by Neal Radice (pictured above).

The company is steadfastly dedicated to the development and production of new plays and musicals and makes its home in a beautifully renovated 33,000 sq. ft. former bus depot in the heart of Buffalo New York’s historic Theatre District.

The company offers a continuous season of live stage plays and musicals in its intimate, convertible theatre each September through May, the fifth longest running U.S. production of A CHRISTMAS CAROL, and special events throughout the year.  The corporation provides theatre education to adults and students through its Theatre School of WNY.
Alleyway Theatre sponsors the annual Maxim Mazumdar New Play Competition. Audience services include discounted rates for students, Pay-What-You-Can performances, group rates, post-performance discussions with artists, and preview performances for community service organizations. Structured volunteer programs and student internships are available.

The facility also features Alleyway Cabaret, a 65 seat theatre which presents varied programming throughout the year and Alleyway Theatre complies with federal regulations regarding accessibility to the handicapped.

In addition to presenting our own full season of theatre, we welcome a number of other theatre companies, including Buffalo United Artists, to the Alleyway Theatre complex.
