Winner of the 2016 Tony Award for Best Play

The Amarillo Little Theatre proudly presents The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time as its first Mainstage show of the 2020-21 Season. This amazing show with its odd title is one of the finest plays we have ever produced at ALT! We can’t wait to share this beautiful work of theater ART.

15-year-old Christopher has an extraordinary brain: He is exceptional at mathematics but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life;  He has never ventured alone beyond the end of his road, he detests being touched and he distrusts strangers. Now, it is 7 minutes after midnight and Christopher stands beside his neighbor’s dead dog, Wellington, who has been speared by a garden fork. Finding himself under suspicion, Christopher is determined to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington and he carefully records each fact of the crime. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a thrilling journey that upturns his world.

This award-winning play has earned rave reviews throughout the country and it is currently the most produced show in the country! This is a show that should be shared as a family. We have given it a PG – 12 rating only because there are some emotionally intense scenes in the show.

The Curious Incident… will also feature a very unique stage set and some miraculous lighting and special effects that have not ever been experienced by an ALT audience.  It is unlike anything you have ever seen.

ALT has selected an outstanding collection of performers for this play. It includes Tre Butcher in the leading role. Also included are ALT veteran actors Shannon Mashburn, Zeke Lewis and amazing newcomer Emmy Estes. The ensemble includes the abundant talent of Michael Newman, Erin Murphy, Brandon Graves, Don Shipman, Macy Dawson and Jennifer Wilkerson. Allen Shankles is the Artistic Director with Ashley Devoid as Assistant to the Director.

This is going to be spectacular production! Make your reservations today.

Please note that ALT will require face masks to be worn at all times. Also, we will only have approximately 200 seats available for each performance to promote social distancing. We are going to keep you safe!! To review all of the safety protocols in place at ALT, please go to this link here.
