It’s Our Birthday!

  It is hard to believe a year has gone by since we gathered at the old Midtown with many friends and toasted the birth of a new performance space on the island.  During the past year we have performed in various venues around town, in tents in the parking lot, and finally were able to  to take the stage in our own newly revamped playhouse.  We have produced 4 revues,  benefits for the FB Women’s Club and the ALS Foundation, 3 plays, and 3 full scale musicals.  The total casts, bands and crews for these productions total over 150 volunteers!   We  are pleased to be a 100% volunteer organization.  The great news  is that there is always room for more!
        In the coming season we will introduce 7 directors new to AMP, some experienced, some making their directorial debut! We have planned a season packed with  music, drama, comedy, and some new surprises.  We welcome you on either side of our curtain.
