ADDAMS FAMILY OPENS IN ONE WEEK!

The cast of “Addams Family” horses around at Rehearsal.

They’re creepy and they’re kooky, and they’re coming to Alamogordo!

“The Addams Family,” the musical, based on the classic gag cartoons by Charles Addams, opens Friday November 2nd at the Flickinger Center. Performances continue November 3, 9, 10 at 7PM and November 4 at 2 PM.

And you’re not going to want to stay in your seats as this ghoulish family gets in touch with its macabre side.

“You’re going to see The Addams Family in a whole new light and how they deal with the “normal” world”, show director Jeremy Patton said.

Patton said the musical tells the story of Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, all grown up.

“She has a shocking secret that only her father knows — she’s fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family,” he said. “And Gomez must do something he’s never done before and keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia.”

When Wednesday asks her family to act like a “normal” family, the Addams family must discover what is normal, the director said. The results are hilarious and wackiness ensues.

The entire cast has worked tremendously hard on the show. Featured in the production are Fabiani Duarte as Gomez, Hillary Marshall as Morticia, Kyra Zartner as Wednesday, Sid Johnson as Fester and Zack Miller as Wednesday’s Boyfriend, Lucas Beineke. Choreography is by Kehau-Lani Kaihewalu and costumes by Geavonna Bryant. You will see the talents of many more Alamogrdo, Holloman and Cloudcroft faces as well!

Tickets are available online at the Flickinger or in person at their box office. In addition, Tickets are available at Books Revisited in the White Sands Mall or at the door the night of the show.

Remember, One week until opening night! We will see you there! Snap, snap!

ROCKY HORROR OPENS! TWO SHOWS TONIGHT!!

AMT’s fall production of The Rocky Horror Show opened last night to an insane crowd! The cast and audience alike were eating up the magnificent energy that was created by the cult classic.

In the four decades since it debuted, The Rocky Horror Show has become the archetype for fun, marked by weekly or monthly interactive viewings in theatres across the country. For the Rocky “Virgins” out there, these productions usually involve a series of callbacks that audience members shout along with or in response to many of the original show’s scripted lines.

Last night was no different! Supplemented by AMT’s prop bags, that were available for purchase in the lobby, the audience got to be right in the thick of the plot: the story of a young couple – Brad (Daniel Humm) and Janet (Stacy Beaupre) – who end up at the mysterious castle of Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Lee Austin).  The night takes many twists and turns, throwing them into a world unlike any they have ever known. Unfortunately for them, this evening out is destined to be one they will never forget!

Tonight, there will be two shows for your enjoyment, a traditional 7PM production for the early birds out there AND A MIDNIGHT SHOW for you true die hard Rocky Horror fans! All seats are twelve dollars and both productions will be at the Flickinger Center for the Performing Arts. Tickets can be purchased in person at the Pizza Mill and Sub Factory, Books Revisited in the White Sands Mall and at the Flickinger. Follow this link to buy your tickets online from the Flickinger website!

A fast-paced pastiche of camp, science fiction, rock music, horror, and more camp The Rocky Horror Show is a fun adult night out that Alamogordo residents will not soon forget! We will see you tonight!

 

AVENUE Q opens tonight at the Flickinger Center


After several months of hard work, the cast of Avenue Q premieres tonight at the Flickinger Center for the performing arts. Many hours of rehearsal have been dedicated to learning music, staging and above all, puppetry!

The irreverent, R-rated musical tells the timeless story of a recent college grad named Princeton who moves into a shabby New York apartment all the way out on Avenue Q. He soon discovers that although the residents seem nice, it’s clear that this is not your ordinary neighborhood. Together, Princeton and his new-found friends struggle to find jobs, dates, and their ever-elusive purpose in life.

Filled with gut-busting humor and a delightfully catchy score, Avenue Q is a truly unique show that has quickly become a favorite for audiences everywhere. Although the show addresses humorous adult issues, it is similar to a beloved children’s show; a place where puppets are friends, Monsters are good and life lessons are learned.
The cast of Avenue Q is made up exclusively of members from the Alamogordo and surrounding community. Not only are their residents from Alamogordo, but from Tularosa and our Holloman Air Force Base community. The Alamogordo Music Theater has encouraged participation from all areas of the Tularosa basin for over the last 58 years of its existence.

Avenue Q is a new show for AMT.  It’s a bold new step for the organization, trying to introduce more modern shows to the Alamogordo community. In addition to bringing new productions to our area, we plan on bringing the more traditional 1776 to the stage this summer for our nations 240th birthday! Closing out our 2016 season will be another effort to try something new, we will be bringing the wacky Monty Python’s Spamalot to the Flickinger Center this fall.

Do not miss out on Avenue Q! Production dates are April 8, 9, 15, 16 at 7pm at the Flickinger  Center.  There will be a 2 PM matinee on April 10. All seats are $10. Tickets are available at Books Revisited in the Mall, the Flickinger Center and cast members from the show.

One of Stephen Sondheim’s most popular shows, “Into the Woods” intertwines the plots of several Brothers Grimm fairy tales and follows them to explore the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests.

“Into the Woods” will have performances at the Flickinger Center on April 10, 11, 17 & 18 at 7PM and a matinee on April 12 at 2PM. All tickets are $10 and are available at Alamo Optical, Books Revisited and at the Flickinger Center.
