A magical retelling of the Cinderella story that's more high-tops than glass slipper and is fueled by the magic of lightning bugs, singing cicadas, and oozing mud. Our young prince, who was raised by an overbearing parent, searches the kingdom for a best friend ready for adventure. Our Cinderella, who has spent countless days pulling her ungrateful stepmother around in her tiny house, fits the bill. Filled with humor and wonder, this is a world-premiere adaptation by Atlanta's own Janece Shaffer with music by Renee Clark.

Inspired by Eric Carle's beloved book of the same name, From Head to Toe invites the youngest audience members to think, observe, and move like their favorite animals. This interactive theatrical experience will allow the toddlers to help "create" the animals in the book, bring them to life, and mimic their movement in a playful retelling of the classic story. Featuring a scenic design that mirrors the wonder of Carle's illustrations and interactive yoga-inspired animal movement, this play moves from "Can you do it?" to "I can do it!" to "We can do it!" From Head to Toe is presented in conjunction with the High Museum of Art exhibition I See a Story: The Art of Eric Carle.
This hilarious one-man show by Dad's Garage's Mark Kendall—also a leader in Atlanta's growing African-American comedy network—shows a performer at war with himself. Dissecting common themes in representations of the African-American experience, Mark makes us laugh and ask ourselves why we are laughing. From race cards to white flight, Aunt Jemima, and even Black Jesus—you will laugh until you cry and cry until you laugh. This subversive show is the reason Atlanta artists are defining African-American comedy today. The Magic Negro and Other Blackity Blackness was developed by the Reiser Atlanta Artists Lab and is the first project from the Lab to receive a full production on the Hertz Stage.
Melville's classic tale of man's obsessive battle against nature comes to life in "a triumph of grand theatrical imagination, deep thought, superb acting, and eye-popping, ingeniously deployed physical daring" (Chicago Sun-Times).

Set sail for an epic adventure with Captain Ahab and his crew in this harrowing quest for the great white whale.

Based on Mo Willems' beloved CAT the CAT series, this play explores the often terrifying experience of making a new friend. Using the rhyming and simple language of the books, this theatrical experience will invite our young audience to identify Cat the Cat's parade of animal friends, mimic their animal sounds, and even learn a new language! When Cat the Cat meets a newcomer on the scene, the audience shares in the nerves and the joy of the experience, and ultimately makes a room full of new friends themselves. Back by popular demand following its world premiere last season, come play the play with Cat the Cat!
Emma becomes an instant outcast—and a national headline—when her high school cancels the prom rather than let her attend with her girlfriend. Sensing a chance to correct an injustice—and maybe get some good publicity along the way—a group of fading celebrities takes up the cause, and invades Emma's small Indiana town. But their bumbling attempts at social activism make the situation far worse than they—or Emma—could have ever imagined. Cultures clash and the town erupts in chaos. The community's reputation, Emma's future, and the actors' careers all hang in the balance, until a true hero emerges to save the day. Uproarious and ultimately uplifting, this new musical proves that standing up for yourself—and inspiring others to accept their differences—can make you the star you were always meant to be.
Daisy is a typical American middle school student, or at least she thought she was before someone wrote a religious slur across her locker. Now Daisy, who has always found it difficult to fit in, faces pressure to become a spokesperson for minorities at her school, and the ideas she has about herself are getting more and more blurred by how others see her and who they want her to be. As she struggles to balance allegiance to her cultural roots, to her school community, and, most importantly, to herself, Daisy asks the crucial question: Are we what society says we are? Or can we be whoever we want to be? An important original play about identity, race, and religion in middle school by Greg Changnon in collaboration with his students at Atlanta's Paideia School and the young actors in the Alliance Theatre summer drama camps.
On October 12, 1958, a bundle of dynamite blew through the wall of Atlanta's oldest synagogue. Following 1954's Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court decision, Rabbi Rothschild of The Temple had become a public advocate for the progress of Civil Rights. The explosion and national support for The Temple community bolstered Atlanta city leaders' resolve to investigate and prosecute the crime, paving the way for dramatic social change. Temple Atlanta, inspired by the award-winning book The Temple Bombing by Melissa Fay Greene, is a world premiere presented on the occasion of The Temple's 100th anniversary. This theatricalization celebrates a city that came together in the face of hatred to live the lessons of the Civil Rights era, lessons that still resonate 58 years after that fateful day. Temple Atlanta is developed in association with Tectonic Theater Project of New York and The Temple.
In rural Tennessee at the height of the Civil Rights Movement two young couples struggle to understand justice, love, and their own responsibilities. When Bowzie gets a scholarship to attend Fisk University, he has the opportunity to improve his family's life. His education goes beyond the classroom, as he becomes a Freedom Rider and joins the fight against racism in the Deep South, leaving his obligations as a husband and friend behind. A beautifully written look at the personal cost and private struggles behind public events, Too Heavy for Your Pocket speaks powerfully about the bonds of friendship and what defines true family. The 2017 winner of the Alliance/Kendeda National Graduate Playwriting Competition, the Alliance is thrilled to celebrate one of its own—playwright and former Kenny Leon Fellow Jiréh Breon Holder.

This feel-good romantic comedy by Atlanta's Janece Shaffer (The Geller Girls) with original music by Sugarland's Kristian Bush is a world-premiere production not to be missed.
In a searing new drama, Jess is a young soldier who returns to her hometown with more than the emotional scars of war.
