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!

SET BUILDING… IT TAKES THE WHOLE VILLAGE!

Individual commitment to a group effort – that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work. – Vince Lombardi

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.

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!
