KEEPING BUSY!! Damn Yankees Second Weekend & Hairspray Auditions!

The Alamogordo Music Theatre is keeping busy this spring! After opening last weekend, AMT continues production of the broadway hit; Damn Yankees! The show commences April 28th and 29th at the Flickinger Center! Light, fast-paced and devilishly clever, Damn Yankees is a homerun hit! It features an all-American, family friendly subject matter and an irreverent sense of humor. Damn Yankees is a wicked, romantic comedy, sure to please. Tickets are available now at the Flickinger Center!

Next on the agenda is Hairspray! 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!

Auditions are May 1 & 3 at the Flickinger Center at 6PM. For a look at the roles and ranges for Hairspray take a look here!
