WARMING UP FOR DAMN YANKEES FINAL WEEKEND!

The cast and crew of AMT’s spring production of Damn Yankees has geared up for another amazing weekend of productions at the Flickinger Center for the Performing Arts! The cast of the show has channeled the energy from opening weekend for two more nights of singing, dancing and all sorts of shenanigans. Production nights are Friday, April 28th and Saturday, April 29th at 7PM. Tickets can be purchased at the Flickinger Center.

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 (Loren Jackson), trades his soul to the Devil, also known as Mr. Applegate (Randall Cutts), for a chance to lead his favorite team to victory in the pennant race against the New York Yankees. As transformed young phenom Joe Hardy (Zack Miller), he wows the world transforming the hapless Washington Senators into a winning team, Joe begins to realize the real worth of the life he’s left behind. Colorful characters, smashing dance numbers and songs, including “Whatever Lola Wants (Lola Gets),” “You Gotta Have Heart” and “Those Were the Good Old Days,” are show highlights. Boasting more than 1,000 performances on Broadway, a successful film version and a popular Broadway revival, Damn Yankees has won seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical. Light, fast-paced and devilishly clever, Damn Yankees promises to please!

Come this weekend to see some amazing local talent perform this fantastic show! Remember, every ticket sold helps fund scholarships for area students to pursue the fine arts! What a great reason to take in a night of musical entertainment!

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.

and then there was the Baker and his Wife…

IMG_0029There are a great deal of cockeyed characters in James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim’s fractured fairy tale “Into the Woods”. Tying all these characters together are the Baker and his Wife (played by Heather Julian-Bash and Michael Kennedy Carrillo). When the couple learn they’ve been cursed with childlessness by the Witch next door, they embark on a quest for the special objects required to break the spell. Along their journey they encounter Cinderella, Little Red Ridinghood, Rapunzel and Jack (of beanstalk fame).

To learn more about what happens on their journey, come see the production April 10,11,12,17 & 18 at the Flickinger Center. Tickets are available at Alamo Optical, Books Revisited, The Flickinger Center or from many of the cast members. We will see you there!
