Riddle. When is a season not quite a season? When the world is not quite the world. As we passed the half year mark on being away from our home at The Alliance, it was a moment to reflect. And while the impulse is to focus on what was lost, I’m working on focusing on what we’ve gained. Since March of 2020, The Alliance has gained: • Viewership in at least forty-five states and eight countries for our virtual work. • A new streaming platform that will bring you a season of rich and varied content. • A deeper knowledge of parking lots and porta-potties than we ever thought we’d have. • Artists who have learned to make film, animate graphics, and turn Zoom into an interactive, community-building platform. What I think we’ve also gained is a redoubled appreciation for our art form — at exactly the same time that we’ve grieved the absence of being in shared space in the shared act of telling and hearing the human story. We’ve learned how big, nimble, agile, and wildly re-inventable theatre really can be. So you’ll be coming to a drive-in where theatre collides with a live radio play. (And that’s theatre.) So you’ll travel across Atlanta with Terry Burrell in a swinging, singing, short holiday film. (And that’s theatre.) And your children will meet the story of our youngest protestors through animation. (And that’s theatre, too.) For me, the expanded definition came early and was gifted to me by a treasured friend. Mid Spring — and deeply challenged by how we would safely make theatre that fed both our artists and our audiences — my phone rang. “At 5pm, go stand in your front door.” And at 5pm on the nose, an actor and musician who melts my heart got out of his car and played “Lean On Me” on my sidewalk. He finished, blew me a kiss, and got back in his car and drove away. And that was epic theatre. Because a human need was met by a human artist. In real time. May we do that for you this season. And may I thank you for the gift of allowing us to.

After all, Leora is no stranger to the Alliance, having been a Resident Artist and directed

aware that we were celebrating and saying goodbye to two decades of people’s holiday memories. The seats and walls and scenery and costumes had stayed constant while the cast, the audience, the city, the world had changed. It felt like the play itself — tender, joyful, and hopeful. Aside from the Alliance Theatre’s, of course, do you have a favorite version? (i.e. The Muppet A Christmas Carol?) I’m definitely a big fan of the Muppet version D Irector Leora Morris of A Christmas Carol! I actually haven’t really seen too many of the other versions. I’m Jewish and have never really celebrated Christmas, so my holiday experience tends to consist of Chinese takeout and going to the movies. How is this year’s A Christmas Carol different from before? What can audiences expect? At the heart of this year’s event is the story of A Christmas Carol that we all know and love (and many familiar songs), but just about everything else is different! Audiences will be congregating in their cars and listening to the show over their car radios. Live and onsite, a teeny tiny cast will voice the dozens of characters in the story, while a live sound effect artist will bring

10 | encore the world of the story to life sonically. Plus, live feed cameras will give audiences a chance to watch the cast at work while they create all those sounds. It’s like a reverse drive-in — instead of the radio supporting audiences while they watch a movie, in our show, the videos will give audiences a sneak peek behind the radio play! While listening to the story, we’ll be inviting the audience to participate and play along right inside their cars — with things like crafts, games, and sound-making. And we’ll be recruiting the audience’s help a couple of times along the way. How do you feel taking on such a big Atlanta tradition, especially about taking it on during such a weird time? I’m so honored to get to collaborate on this show — especially this year. So much of 2020 has been spent separated from each other, and so little about 2020 has been normal. It feels very sacred to offer audiences a space to come together and to reconnect to a tradition, and perhaps even more importantly, to each other. Summerhill is home to some amazing restaurants. TOP: Enjoy delicious soft serve treats at Big Softie, where even the waffle cones are made in-house at sister company, Little Tart Bakeshop. ABOVE: Wood’s Chapel BBQ serves up an extensive barbecue menu cooked over traditional, wood-fired pits.

While we can’t do that by getting close to each other physically, radio allows us to use our voices in a way that’s very intimate — it will feel like the cast is right in the car with you. It’s been a fun challenge to think about bringing this familiar story to life for people inside their cars, just using sound. And we’re working on creative ways to get audiences to connect with each other, too. Why A Christmas Carol? Why now? Charles Dickens wrote A Christmas Carol out of his despair about the extreme inequalities and

injustices he was witnessing in Victorian England. So while A Christmas Carol is a story about one man’s transformation from a self-centered, miserly person into a community-minded, generous one, it is also about the world Scrooge lives in: one that desperately needs him to transform so that it, too, can transform. Tiny Tim only survives if people with resources and power decide he is worth their attention and advocacy. Without that advocacy, he is an optimistic, graceful young boy without a fighting chance. This is a story of a waking up. And just like it is for Ebenezer Scrooge, A Christmas Carol is our annual theatrical opportunity to reflect on our past, be in our present, and think about our future. It matters so deeply to all of us making this show, that we honor

alliancetheatre.org | @alliancetheatre


Charles Dickens’ call to see our pasts clearly, notice what’s happening in the present, and actively build a future we believe in for those who come after us. Has this time changed you? Both as an artist and human? How? Oof. So many ways. It has made me realize how much of what I love about my job is physically being in space with other people; I miss the way the air crackles. And I miss how each project in the theatre is an opportunity to model a way of being, a mini-world, a small utopic experiment in community-building. It’s been gutting to see the impact of COVID-19 and to watch the murder of George Floyd, but I am hopeful that the dovetailing of this forced pause and the global call for justice and equality for all people can result in true, deep change to our systems. I hope this production is a step in the right direction towards that change.

s there anything more comforting than a holiday tradition? From the food, to the music, to the warm embrace of family and friends, there’s nothing like this time of year. For actor Terry Burrell, the holidays also signify an opportunity to give back. “The holidays mean family, connection, generosity of Spirit to give to those less fortunate,” Terry says; “an awareness of how blessed I am and what a beautiful place our Universe can be.”

Burrell, who has appeared in several Broadway productions including Dreamgirls, Into the Woods, and Thoroughly Modern Millie, enjoys her own set of holiday traditions. “The biggest tradition is trimming the tree,” she tells us, “usually on Christmas Eve. The Christmas music is playing, and I’ve already laid out snacks and glasses of prosecco. When all is done, there is a marathon watch party of A Christmas Carol and It’s A Wonderful Life on television.” Just like the rest of us, Terry also keenly feels the impact of the pandemic and how it has shifted and even disrupted traditions for many. Since large gatherings and travel have been restricted to reduce a potential spread, many people have had to adjust their typical end-of-year plans. “The biggest change for me,” Terry says, “is that for the first time my family won’t be coming to spend it with us. Part of the fun has always been planning a Christmas dinner menu with my husband and cooking for them.” But despite the disappointment, Burrell offers a more uplifting

USING THEATER-BASED STRATEGIES TO CHALLENGE SYSTEMIC RACISM Taught by Alliance Theatre facilitators, the trainings are designed to be a resource for identifying and rooting out implicit biases based on race, gender, age, sexuality, and more. STORY BY

To help address this moment of racial reckoning in our society, the Alliance Theatre is now offering Anti-Bias Training for corporations, nonprofits, educators, and families. Originally developed in 2018 as part of required training for Alliance Theatre teaching artists to address bias in classes and camps, the training has now been adapted to serve new audiences. Taught by Alliance Theatre facilitators, the trainings are designed to be a resource for identifying and rooting out implicit biases based on race, gender, age, sexuality, and more. WHY THEATER? “Theater is a tool of collaboration, innovation, and imagination,” says Maya Lawrence, Alliance Theatre Allyship Program Director and architect of the program. “On stages, we create new, tangible realities that reflect the truth of our humanity in real time. During this moment where society is trying to recognize, reckon, and reimagine a world that’s actively anti-racist and authentically inclusive, equitable, and just, theater gives us an outline to transform the future we’ve envisioned for so long into a reality we can experience now.” WHO IS IT FOR? Corporations & Nonprofits Alliance@work, the Alliance’s awardwinning corporate training program, offers a 2.5-hour customizable training that uses theater-based

learning strategies to help challenge assumptions, acknowledge biases, and establish a culture of genuine equity, inclusion, and justice in the workplace. Nonprofit rates available Educators The Alliance Theatre Institute offers anti-bias professional learning events for groups of educators at the district and school levels. Utilizing components of theater to deconstruct personal bias in our lived experiences, the workshop equips educators with the ability to infuse anti-oppression tools into educational practices. Families Fearless Families: A Workshop for Allies and Little-Allies-in-theMaking uses play as tool for learning. Designed for ages 6-12, this 1-hour workshop utilizes our voice, body, and imagination to dig deeper into the difficult conversation of race and injustice in a way that is accessible to youth, the young at heart, and their caregivers.
