The Cast of AMT’s Monty Python’s Spamalot says “THANK YOU”!

thank-you-by-woodleywonderworks-via-flickr-and-wordle-netThank you to all of our audience members and supporters of AMT’s production of Monty Python’s Spamalot! We enjoyed wonderful and responsive audiences at the Flickinger Center over the past two weekends.

Theater is a form of art that cannot exist without an audience. We can rehearse and strive to tell the story, but without our audience members’ energy and feedback, the story cannot be told.

We certainly hope you enjoyed your time with us and look forward to putting on many more terrific productions. Next up in the spring is the musical classic “Damn Yankees”, a Faustian tale about professional baseball in the Broadway sendup of love and the American pastime!

Based on the novel, The Year the Yankees Lost the Pennant by Douglass Wallop, Damn Yankees the Broadway mega-hit and winner of seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical, hits it out of the park! The winning score by Adler and Ross and a devilish book by George Abbot have made this sporty musical comedy a true American classic.

We look forward to seeing you in April at the Flickinger Center and hope you have a wonderful holiday season!

Jennifer Damon belts out the “Diva’s Lament” from Monty Python’s Spamalot, opening tonight at the Flickinger Center.

The Alamogordo Music Theatre is getting ready to take a trip on the wild side tonight with the wacky and witty Monty Python’s Spamalot! If you are a fan of the British comedy troupe Monty Python, this show is sure to tickle your funny bone.
Spamalot tells the legendary tale of King Arthur’s quest to find the Holy Grail. Inspired by the classic comedy film, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, the musical also diverts a bit from more traditional versions of the legend. Instead, Spamalot features shenanigans including a line of beautiful dancing girls, a flatulent Frenchmen and killer rabbits. Outside, there is plague with a 50% chance of pestilence and famine. Throughout the show, Arthur, traveling with his servant Patsy, recruits several knights to accompany him on his quest, including Sir Bedevere, Sir Robin, Sir Lancelot and Sir Galahad. Besides the rabbits and farting Frenchman, they meet such characters as the Lady of the Lake, Prince Herbert, Tim the Enchanter, Not Dead Fred, the Black Knight and the Knights who say Ni.
The original 2005 Broadway production, directed by Mike Nichols, won three Tony Awards, including the Tony Award for Best Musical of the 2004–2005 season and received 14 Tony Award nominations. During its initial run of over 1,500 performances it was seen by more than two million people and grossed over $175 million.
The AMT production features many local talents: Loren Jackson as King Arthur, Daniel Humm as Sir Robin and James White as Lancelot. In addition, many active duty members and spouses from Holloman AFB are featured: Jennifer Damon as the Lady of the Lake, Jacob Powers as Not Dead Fred/Prince Herbert and Michael Rodgers featured in the ensemble. The production is directed by Keith Dodson.
Monty Python’s Spamalot will opens tonight (11/11) at the Flickinger Center for the Performing Arts in Alamogordo and continue on November 12, 18 & 19 at 7PM. There will be a 2PM matinee of November 13th. All tickets are $10 at the Flickinger Center and the Pizza Mill & Sub Factory.

Damn Yankees: Spring 2017

Faust meets professional baseball in the Broadway sendup of love and the American pastime!

Based on the novel, The Year the Yankees Lost the Pennant by Douglass Wallop, Damn Yankees the Broadway mega-hit and winner of seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical, hits it out of the park! The winning score by Adler and Ross and a devilish book by George Abbot have made this sporty musical comedy a true American classic.

Middle-aged baseball fanatic Joe Boyd, trades his soul to the Devil, also known as Mr. Applegate, for a chance to lead his favorite team to victory in the pennant race against the New York Yankees. As young baseball sensation, Joe Hardy, he transforms the hapless Washington Senators into a winning team, only to realize the true worth of the life that he’s left behind. Joe ultimately outsmarts Applegate, returns to his former self and shepherds the Senators to the World Series.

Light, fast-paced and devilishly clever, Damn Yankees is a homerun hit, featuring all-American subject matter and an irreverent sense of humor. Damn Yankees is a wicked, romantic comedy, sure to please.

 

Hairspray: Summer 2017

You can’t stop the beat in this big and bold musical about one girl’s inspiring dream to dance!

The 1950s are out, and change is in the air! Hairspray, winner of eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, is a family-friendly musical, piled bouffant-high with laughter, romance and deliriously tuneful songs.

It’s 1962 in Baltimore, and the lovable plus-size teen, Tracy Turnblad, has only one desire – to dance on the popular “Corny Collins Show.” When her dream comes true, Tracy is transformed from social outcast to sudden star. She must use her newfound power to dethrone the reigning Teen Queen, win the affections of heartthrob, Link Larkin, and integrate a TV network… all without denting her ‘do!

 

Rocky Horror Show: Fall 2017

Let’s do the time warp again in this wild and wooly stage production of the rock and roll classic!

One fateful night, Brad Majors and his fiancée, Janet Weiss — a wholesome, well-behaved, utterly normal young couple in love — innocently set out to visit an old professor. Unfortunately for them, this night out is destined to be one they will never forget. A thunderstorm and a flat-tire force them to seek help at the castle of Dr. Frank ’N’ Furter, an alien, transvestite scientist with a manic genius and insatiable libido. Brad, Janet, and Frank’ N’ Furter’s cohorts are swept up into the scientist’s latest experiment. The night’s misadventures will cause Brad and Janet to question everything they’ve known about themselves, each other, love, and lust. A loving homage to the classic B sci-fi film and horror genres with an irresistible rock’n’roll score, The Rocky Horror Show is a hilarious, wild ride that no audience will soon forget.
