Current Project

Palefsky Collision Project

The Alliance Theatre’s Palefsky Collision Project will be coming to the National Center for Civil & Human Rights this July. For over a decade this innovative program has been challenging metro Atlanta teens to "collide" with a classic text and make it their own. Guided by the Alliance's Mellon Playwright in Residence Pearl Cleage, director Patrick McColery and assistant director Rodney Williams, participants are encouraged to find and claim their own voices within a judgment free zone of creativity and community. This year's catalytic text will be Congressman John Lewis' graphic novel March. As a young student activist, Congressman Lewis was inspired by the 1958 comic book Martin Luther King and the Montgomery Story. Now he brings the Civil Rights Movement to life for a whole new generation.

The wholly original piece participants will write and shape together after encountering and exploring March is guaranteed to inspire audiences at the two free performances these young artists will offer at the National Center on July 28th at 7 p.m. and July 29th at 2:30 p.m.

We've officially hit summer here in Atlanta, and while temperatures are rising outside, we're staging the hottest dance party inside: The Dancing Granny. But with all there is to do this season, why should you grab the kids and come see the show?

A little known fact about the Alliance?
"We are the largest producing theatre in Georgia and if you break out our education department and its shows, that would be the second."

What is your hope for the future?
"For myself, I want to be happy. Motivation to succeed. For humanity, I wish for there to be more understanding, without disregard or hate."
