For Educators

The Alliance Theatre and its educational programs provide teachers with resources for integrating the arts into their classrooms and engaging students as artists and patrons. The Alliance Arts for Learning Institute provides in-school residency programs and teacher professional development across the state of Georgia. The Alliance Theatre’s school day performances offer students the opportunity to see professional theater productions through their schools. Teen Audience Fusion is a unique program that creates intergenerational dialogue between the teens in the Atlanta community and its local arts patrons. For three weeks each summer, the Palefsky Collision Project assembles a diverse group of 20 teenagers from metro Atlanta to explore and unpack a classic text under the guidance of a professional playwright and director.

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."
