HISTORY OF ALLIANCE THEATRE
Alliance Theatre, Inc. (AT)
was
established in 1978 as an independent,
non-profit, multicultural and ethnically
diverse Theatre in Community, dedicated
to the development of young people in the
performing arts.  The company offers
theatre opportunities to a diverse
population of performance artists and
undeserved audiences in Greater New
Haven.
 AT held the rights to Black Nativity
for over 20 years.  
In 2004,
AT was selected, along with 11
other New Haven organizations, to
participate in the PACK (Parents And
Communities for Kids) initiative which
promotes family learning. ACT remains a
PACK affiliate. During its 33 year history,
AT has been the subject of several
documentaries and news articles.  It has
received numerous awards recognizing
the quality of its programs.
 
Alliance Children’s Theatre (ACT)
is a
subsidiary of
AT, created to provide a
regional program for children ages 7-18 in
a culturally diverse setting at no cost to
the participants.
 ACT produces a season
of plays by and for young people, and
tours to libraries, community centers, and
churches.  In addition to numerous
musical productions,
ACT offers summer
camp and school vacation camp programs
for Greater New Haven children.  
Participants are involved as actors, play
directors, and technical crew. Through
theater involvement, children develop
interpersonal, leadership, and literacy
skills.  
AT is dependent on grants and donations
to offset the cost of operating the theatre
programs. Your generous contribution
paves the way for making the organization’
s programs available to all who love the
performing arts.
