SET BUILDING… IT TAKES THE WHOLE VILLAGE!

The Alamogordo Music Theatre has been gearing up for it’s fall production of “The Addams Family”, a musical version of the beloved classic characters that Charles Addams gave life to decades ago. There are several things that go into a making an extraordinary production; such as singing, blocking and rehearsing. However, set design and the set work that follows is key to a successful production.

Since the set is generally the first element of a production that the audience sees, its job is to convey the information needed to launch the story. An effective scenic design (partnered with a great lighting design) helps the audience see and hear the play better by telling them where to look and whom to listen to. The means to a great set design should allow the audience’s focus to be the actor in space.

Being a non profit community theater, AMT relies mostly on its actors, crew and community members to assemble its sets. Every Saturday morning members of the show go out and build platforms, flats, windows and doorways to create the desired illusion for AMT’s performances. It’s a wonderful way to socialize and get to know your fellow cast and crew.  The tremendous benefit comes from the brilliant people from Alamogordo, Holloman AFB, Tularosa and Cloudcroft coming together and sharing knowledge and experiences. It is what has made Alamogordo Music Theatre a truly wonderful organization over the last 61 years.

If you would like to get involved in set or stage work with AMT, drop us a line here on our website!

“The Addams Family” will open on November 2nd at the Flickinger Center.

SHREK THE MUSICAL OPENS THIS WEEKEND!

On Friday, August 3rd, the doors to the Flickinger Center will open for SHREK THE MUSICAL! Tickets for all seats are $12. Tickets may be purchased at the door or online at the Flickinger Center website. There are over 50 wonderfully talented people in the cast, orchestra and crew, all from the Alamogordo, Holloman, Cloudcroft and Tularosa communities.

SHREK THE MUSICAL is based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film that started it all. This live adaptation brings the hilarious story of everyone’s favorite ogre to the stage. In a faraway kingdom turned upside down, things get ugly when an ogre – not a handsome prince – shows up to rescue a feisty princess. Throw in a donkey that does not keep quiet, a villain with a short temper, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you’ve got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there’s one on hand and his name is Shrek.

SHREK THE MUSICAL performances are August 3, 4, 10 & 11 at 7PM. There will be a 2PM Matinee on August 5. All performances are at the Flickinger Center.
