Because of you...

...we have spent our pandemic producing and planning. And now, we're back!

Please help us keep the work going by with a donation to Alleyway Theatre. Your gift doesn’t stop at these doors—it bolsters an entire community of living playwrights, actors, designers, and artists.

As you consider your gift, we ask this year that you become a sustaining member. Seeing your support every month helps us to continue planning for this year, next year, and forty more years of Alleyway.

Thank you for being a part of this community, supporting bold, innovative new works.
