Have You Experienced the Alley Theater?

September 11th, 2009


The Alley Theatre began in 1947 when high school teacher Nina Vance sent out 214 postcards to friends and neighbors.  The postcard read: “It’s beginning!  Do you want a new theatre for Houston?  Meeting.  3617 Main.  Bring a friend!  Tuesday, October 7, 8 p.m.”   More than 100 “members” attended and the Alley was born.  The Alley Theatre is located at 615 Texas Avenue.



Over the course of its first 60 years, the Alley Theatre has grown, struggled, persevered and triumphed. At times stretching its capabilities, it has always exceeded expectations. From its humble beginning in a dance studio to its current position of national and international prominence, the Alley Theatre has made its downtown home a cultural nexus in Houston’s performing arts, social and business communities.


If you enjoy attending the Theater, then consider this an invitation to experience something extraordinary.   I’ve been ushering at the Alley since 2004 (oh gosh, where does the time go!)  It’s just fun and I hope I see you there very soon.
