AMT CELEBRATES 60 YEARS!

Fast Forward 60 Years and AMT is still running strong!  The organization brings together community members from Alamogordo, Holloman, Tularosa and Cloudcroft. AMT is committed to creating a voice for diverse artists, to nurturing their unique voices, and to engaging our audiences. In addition, the proceeds from AMT shows go to area students who are pursuing collegiate studies in the arts.

ROCKY HORROR AUDITIONS ON THE HORIZON

Are you ready to do the Time Warp again? Well, the Alamogordo Music Theatre is pleased to announce the auditions for their fall musical “The Rocky Horror Show”!  After a successful run of the musical “Hairspray”, AMT is following the achievement with the retro sci-fi musical 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, a 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.

Auditions will be held at the Flickinger Center for the Performing Arts on August 22nd and 24th at 6:00PM. Please anticipate to sing a song that showcases your vocal abilities. Only those with prepared music will be considered for major roles.  You will also need to read a short selection from the show that will be provided by the casting committee. You can access a list roles and ranges here.

Please remember, this is a live stage production of Rocky Horror, not a movie sing-a-long. Though aspects of the movie “Rocky Horror Picture Show” will be included in the production, the people cast in the show will be doing a completely live theatrical creation.

We look forward to seeing you at the Flickinger for another amazing AMT show!

HAIRSPRAY BLASTS OFF THIS WEEKEND

The Alamogordo Music Theatre is pleased to announce the arrival of our summer musical “Hairspray”!  The production opens Friday, August 4th and continues on August 5, 11 and 12 at 7PM and August 6th at 2PM at the Flickinger Center!

“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!

Tickets are $12 dollars and can be purchased at the Flickinger Center, The Pizza Mill and Sub Factory or from any cast member. Remember, proceeds from the production help fund scholarships for area students going into the arts! Helping with education and taking in a dynamic show, two great reasons to see “Hairspray”! It all starts tonight at the Flick! See you there!
