World Premiere Musical
Part of the Family Series

A world premiere play with original music, Pancakes, Pancakes! is a delightful tale for all ages inspired by the beautiful and iconic book by Eric Carle. Featuring original songs and a stunning design, Pancakes, Pancakes! explores the process of cooking and celebrates the joy in the labor and in the final feast. Adapted from Eric Carle's beloved book of the same name, this new play is written by Alliance favorite Kenneth Lin.

This play is presented in conjunction with the High Museum of Art exhibition I See a Story: The Art of Eric Carle.

Alliance Rendering 1

The Alliance Theatre has released final design renderings of its theater transformation, which is scheduled to begin in the summer of 2017. This is the first major building reinvention for the theater since its construction in 1968 as part of the Woodruff Arts Center campus. The Alliance Theatre will perform its 2017/18 season in 12 different locations in the metro Atlanta area, bringing live theater out into the community it serves. The Alliance plans to return to its new theater space for its 50th anniversary season in the fall of 2018.
