Since 1968, the Alliance Theatre has served as Atlanta's foremost Theatre, working within the local, national and international communities to become one of the leading regional theatres in America. The mission of the Alliance is straightforward and ambitious: As the premier theatre of the Southeast, the Alliance Theatre sets the highest artistic standards, creating the powerful experience of shared theatre for diverse people. From its inaugural presentation of King Arthur, to its Broadway-bound premiere production of The Color Purple, the Alliance has consistently advanced the art of theatre. Over the years, the Alliance has produced more than 50 World Premieres bringing the worlds best resources to Atlanta in one of the nations finest venues. But a great theatre is more than a place to view plays. It also serves the community as an entry into the world of art for children and adults.
