Theater Alliance was founded in 1993 as a community theater and made the transition to a professional company in 2001. Theater Alliance began with the distinct goal of producing work that would illuminate the experiences, philosophies, and interests of DC’s diverse populations. For a decade, Theater Alliance’s home and performance space was the H Street Playhouse.
In 2012, under the new leadership of Producing Artistic Director Colin Hovde, Theater Alliance began a new chapter with a refocused mission: to develop, produce, and present socially conscious, thought-provoking work that fully engages our community in active dialogue. The company moved from H Street to became the resident theater company of the Anacostia Playhouse, presenting its first full season there in 2013.
MISSION: To develop, produce, and present socially conscious, thought-provoking work that fully engages our community in active dialogue.
VISION: A catalyst for innovation and diversity, Theater Alliance is among DC’s pre-eminent theater companies, one that consistently produces thought-provoking and socially pertinent work, successfully uniting audiences of all backgrounds through the power of creative presentation and participation.
VALUES: Integrity, Diversity, Excellence
