Allen Moore founded Destination Theatre Company in 2001 to provide a family-friendly theatre company in the St. Louis area. Allen's theatre experience began very young with his earliest remembrance being in a 2nd grade PTA production of Bambi in which he played the narrator...dressed up as Papa Smurf. He continued with solos and speaking parts throughout elementary and Junior High in school and church productions including roles in the Evangel College productions of J.B. a Play in Verse and A Christmas Carol while in Junior High. He continued his enjoyment of theatre in High School with roles in The Music Man (Winthrop), The Sound of Music (Admiral Von Schreiber), You Can't Take It With You (Mr. Kirby and Student Director) and several one act plays.
Once in college at Evangel, Allen originally declared a Mathematics Major. However, he was involved back stage in The Lion In Winter and onstage in Fiddler on the Roof (Mendel) and Why Do We Laugh (Andrew, age 64) as well as on a Mime ministry team called Voices. It was through these experiences that Allen decided to change his major to Speech/Theatre education. Throughout the next several years at Evangel, Allen was involved backstage in A Doll's House, A View from the Bridge, and Charley's Aunt; onstage roles The Tempest; many one act and studio scenes including The Diary of Anne Frank, As You Like It and Waiting for Godot and the forensics team where he performed selections from I Never Saw Another Butterfly, Chapter Two, The Lion in Winter and many other selections of drama, poetry, prose and public speaking.
Since graduation from Evangel University in 2000, Allen has continued his work in theatre through six years of teaching middle school speech and drama including directing or co-directing productions of Why Do We Laugh, This is a Test, Mame, The Fantasticks, Rumors, Happy Daze, Music Man Jr., Ba-Ha-Ha Humbug--Four Parodies on A Christmas Carol (which I also co-wrote) and Fools; many church productions including Bethlehem Inn, several productions of The Living Lord's Supper, Putting the Christ Back in Easter (original script), A Christmas Carol (original script and music), Mighty Cross, The Sounds of Christmas, Who Will Call Him King of Kings, What's Your Favorite Part...

(Production Assistant) and Romeo and Juliet (Props Master); and as director and/or producer for all of the ten DTC productions.
In May 2007, Allen received his Masters of Arts in Theatre Administration from Lindenwood University.
