Teen Ensemble

The Alliance Theatre Teen Ensemble is a group of 18-20 high school juniors & seniors from all over Metro-Atlanta, who are interested in performance, writing, and theater production. The goal of the Teen Ensemble program is to give Atlanta area high school students an inside look into the work being done at the Alliance Theatre, and provide opportunities to create world class theater experiences with a teen perspective. The group is selected by audition and interview in the spring of each year and, throughout the following season, members attend 1st previews and Meet & Greets with the cast and crew of all Alliance Theatre productions, write reviews for every show in our season, attend monthly workshops with Alliance Theatre Teaching Artists and Guest Artists from all over the country, and work with Alliance Staff and Guest Artists to create both traditional and experimental theater pieces.

Current Teen Ensemble:
We have just completed the season for the 2018/19 Alliance Theatre Teen Ensemble. Last year's group was made up of 25 members from all over metro Atlanta. Teen Ensemble interests vary from acting to music to writing and everything in between! 

Last year's group participated in two performance opportunities:
A Brief History of Fire by Phillip DePoy, directed by Richard Garner. The 2017/18 ensemble started developing this piece with Richard and Phillip in summer 2017 and members of both groups performed in the final piece this August in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Woodruff Arts Center, who’s origin story this play explored.

This spring, the 18/19 Teen Ensemble worked with the High Museum of Art’s Teen Team and guest artist Samantha Provenzano to develop an interactive performance piece inspired by two sections of the High’s newly reinstalled permanent collection. 

We are currently holding auditions for next year's ensemble. Please see above for audition information.
