CHAIR, SCHOOL FOR THE CREATIVE AND PREFORMING ARTS
"A. L. T.’ s mission of inclusion and learning through the arts is exactly my belief on what the Arts stand for and are meant to do for humanity! Where else can one find their voice and be heard better than through the arts? It’s what A. L. T. means to me and why they have my full support!! I am beyond grateful for this organization and A.L.T. leaders in the community."
VICE CHAIR, FOCUSTRAT LLC, ENRICH ENTERPRIES, INC
"As an advocate for youth, being part of an organization providing programs targeting students and youth for leadership development, art exposure, and new avenues for communicating social concerns is a conviction worth supporting and expanding."
SECRETARY, TAFT MUSEUM OF ART
"A.L.T. approaches theatre differently. It centers and focuses on making theater accessible for ALL with a social justice voice."
"The social message embodied in the A.L.T. mission along with the method of innovating theatre particularly during COVID is what drew me to A.L.T. and makes it stand out."
"I have seen firsthand how theatre transforms lives, whether it gives someone discipline or opens people’s eyes. Working with A.L.T. was a no-brainer as their mission encompasses social change and making an impact on the lives of both audience and performer."
"What drew me to A.L.T. is the intersection of arts and social justice. The current conventions of theatre does not serve ALL people equally nor provide access to theatre and arts. A.L.T. achieves their mission through breaking these conventions and rules to give access to ALL. "
"A.L.T. approaches the arts in a different way by tackling social justice issues. In this day and age, I believe it is more important than ever to express our humanity through the Arts."
MATTHEW DAVID GELLIN, CFRE
FOUNDER & PRODUCING ARTISTIC DIRECTOR
"The power of theatre that has not yet been leveraged completely. It’s the idea of how can we get to a point where wars can be stopped and people can be brought together into a world of true equity because of the power of theatre. How do we truly make an impact in positive way for ALL voices and ALL people? We, at A.L.T. give them a voice and bring that voice to the forefront to be heard."
POLLY LEN HEINKEL
ASSISTANT ARTISTIC DIRECTOR
"A.L.T. speaks to me about the way theatre should be done. A.L.T. gives voice to the voiceless and provides the ability to do theatre in different ways that will affect the audience viscerally."
HANNAH RAHE GOODMAN
"A.L.T produces theatre that makes you think critically. It remains in your mind long after the show ends, and encourages critical conversations. ”
