THE PRINCESS BRIDE EXPERIENCE is part renn faire, part movie, part performance piece, and a fundraiser for the Alley Theatre's new season. It will take place September 29, 2012.
The planned events for the day (so far) include:
* The movie projected on-screen in the black box theater, during which you can come and go "as you wish"
* A staged reading of the script, where the audience is encouraged to quote along
* Princess Bride-themed shows and acts on stage
* Costume and trivia contests
* A renn faire-style midway with vendors and food
* And surprises galore!

The mission of the Alley Theater is to produce progressive theater and to provide an affordable venue for both traditional and experimental artists. The Alley Theater strives to include the entire community in its audiences and on its stage.
The Alley Theater was formed in 1993 for the purpose of fostering original alternative performance works in the Louisville area and to offer local productions of progressive, previously established theatrical productions.
The Alley resided in the Highlands area of Louisville and served that community for under 4 years. In December of 2007, The Alley Theater returned to Louisville in a new facility located within the City Block Entertainment complex. During that year The Alley Theater ran productions throughout 2008, to determine if an alternative theatrical cabaret would be viable in the Louisville area. The Alley saw its audience base grow exponentially in 2008 and determined that investing in a full-time performance and visual arts complex was the next step in its growth.
Sixteen years after The Alley Theater first debuted in the Highlands, the organization is proud to bring the community a new multi-functional performance venue.
