OUR SEASON

NOTICE: For the safety and health of our AUDIENCE and ACTORS; because of COVID-19 we have moved our previously-planned first two shows of the REGULAR SEASON to the 2021-2022 Season, and  adjusted the rest of our season to accommodate our audience and actors. 

WHEN WE DO HAVE LIVE PERFORMANCES (planned to begin March 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.
