Welcome to THE ALLEY THEATRE COMPANY:
a part of all that is Central Christian Church in Anderson, Indiana.
NOTICE: For the safety and health of our AUDIENCE and ACTORS; because of COVID-19 we have adjusted the 2021-2022 Season. WHEN WE DO HAVE LIVE PERFORMANCES (planned to begin January 2021) please know that we will take all social distance precautions for BOTH the audience and actors – while still providing quality performances. These are strange times, but YOUR health and safety is our priority, at THE ALLEY THEATRE.
HOW WE BEGAN
THE ALLEY THEATRE began with a production of MACBETH, at the ANDERSON MUSEUM OF ART (across the street from CENTRAL CHRISTIAN CHURCH). Since then, the theatre company has continued to perform classic scripts in it’s own JAKE HOOVER STUDIO THEATRE.
OUR REGULAR SEASONS
We are a FALL-TO-SPRING Company, with one production the middle of each month (November-March). Our aim is to provide quality productions of classic, somewhat familiar, scripts for the audiences of Madison County, Indiana.
THE JAKE HOOVER STUDIO THEATRE
The JAKE HOOVER STUDIO THEATRE, named after our generous benefactor Jake Hoover, houses THE ALLEY THEATRE. It is a “hybrid-black-box-proscenium” space that can accommodate one-hundred patrons for intimate productions configured in “proscenium”, “thrust” or “theatre-in-the-round” performances.
Tickets ($10) may be purchased by calling the
BOX OFFICE MESSAGE CENTER: 765.643.0701 , or in person at the
CENTRAL CHRISTIAN CHURCH OFFICE at 923 Jackson St., downtown Anderson, Indiana
Auditions are open to the GENERAL PUBLIC. Anyone with or without theatre experience is encouraged to audition. Auditions are held over a weekend, and the entire following season is cast from those auditions.
Those auditioning should prepare to deliver a comic monologue and a dramatic monologue. There are roles for all ages (from Middle School age to mature adult), all genders, all ethnicities.
OUR MISSION STATEMENT
We believe that, in our effort to restore God’s reputation in the world,
the beauty He inspires & creates should be first
represented and celebrated by the artists of His Church.
In that light, THE ALLEY THEATRE will present
plays that are integral, artistic, entertaining, provocative,
good, beautiful & true.
