A Message from Jill and Gregg Dillingham
Thank you for joining us for our fifth season! From our very humble beginnings in the old Midtown bar we have grown into a thriving and active theatre community. In the four years we have been in operation we have produced over 90 shows, with cast, crews, and orchestra members numbering over 400. Young Frankenstein will be our 29th musical!
We are very proud of our musicians. We have never used “canned music” for an AMP musical. We love live music! Our directors and crews are a very dedicated bunch. It is remarkable what they can create on our little stage. We are constantly amazed at and grateful for the level of talent, energy, and creativity that comes from our own island and surrounding neighborhood!
We have partnered with numerous other theatre groups, schools, and organizations and have provided space and entertainment for local fundraisers, including Council on Aging, Friends of the Library, Hope House, Take Stock in Children, Amelia Island Museum, and many others. Thanks to our volunteers and YOU, our audience members, most of our productions so far have sold out! We practice “organic scheduling;” our strength lies in planning through the creative input of volunteers ready to bring their vision to life.
This fall we are also producing 2 teen shows – The Monologue Show from H E Double Hockey Sticks, and 13 the Musical in December. These two shows feature 26 wonderful kids from across Nassau County. We hope to do more student productions this year to accommodate our growing pool of teen actors and singers.
Our company of members, directors, musicians, and crews grows every day. We are a 100% volunteer organization. We welcome new members in all aspects of production. We feel very fortunate to live in a community with such enthusiasm for live theatre. Thank you for your support!
