The Miners Alley Playhouse mission is to be an educational and experience oriented professional theatre. To provide opportunities for actors, directors, writers, designers, and technicians to gain valuable experience in a positive and supportive environment and get paid a living wage.
In May 2019, Miners Alley Playhouse proudly announced its status as Colorado’s newest Actors Equity Union Theatre. Actors Equity Association, founded in 1913, represents more than 51,000 professional Actors and Stage Managers nationwide. Equity seeks to foster the art of live theatre as an essential component of society and advances the careers of its members by negotiating wages, improving working conditions and providing a wide range of benefits, including health and pension plans. Actors Equity is a member of the AFL-CIO and is affiliated with FIA, an international organization of performing arts unions.
Miners Alley Playhouse has been designated as a Small Professional Theatre Level Six under the guidelines of Actors Equity Association. Out of Colorado’s over 100 live theatres listed with the Colorado Theatre Guild, only nine currently hold status as Actors Equity Association Union Theatres. Miners Alley Playhouse joins the ranks as the tenth active Actors Equity Association Union Theatre in Colorado, joining The Denver Center for the Performing Arts, The Arvada Center for Arts and Humanities, Curious Theatre (not listed with CTG), Creede Repertory Theatre, TheatreWorks (Colorado Springs), Theatre Aspen, Colorado Shakespeare Festival (Boulder), Aurora Fox, and Lake Dillon Theatre Company.
