This Amelia Island theatre stages a variety of musicals, plays and revues throughout the year produced by a community of dedicated and talented volunteers.
A Message from Jill and Gregg Dillingham
Time flies when you are having fun and that is certainly true for our theatre company. In July 2016, we celebrated the three-year anniversary of acquiring the old Midtown Bar. With the help of scores of volunteers, turned it into a playhouse. We performed our first few shows at the Peck Center, in tents, and even in our parking lot. More and more people joined our company and helped transform our building into a theatre.
In nearly four years, we have produced more than 50 shows, with casts, crews, and musicians numbering nearly 300. Thanks to our audience members, every musical produced in 2016 sold out! (SHREK was our 23rd musical.) We have also hosted and performed at fundraising events for a variety of local charities including Council on Aging, Friends of the Library, Hope House and many others. AMP practices ‘organic scheduling;’ our strength lies in planning through the creative input of volunteers ready to bring their vision to life.
Our company grows every day. We are a 100% volunteer organization and you are welcome on either side of our curtain. We feel so fortunate to live on an island with so much enthusiasm for live theatre. Thank you for your support.
