What our patrons are saying about “Sweat”…
Last night, Barbara and I saw ALT’s production of the 2017 Pulitzer-prize winning play SWEAT. Bottom line: it was extraordinary! To our surprise, we found ALT’s performance to be even stronger and more affecting than the wonderful version we saw on Broadway two years ago. The play itself is a masterful portrayal of factory workers in Reading, PA in 2000 and 2008 going through the upheaval of a major employer moving production out of the US. What astonished us was the exceptional quality that each actor brought to their performances and how thanks to the intimacy of the Adventure Space we were IN the bar with the characters as we experienced the poignant fate of each one. Thank you ALT for daring to bring such a gritty, relevant, and highly-acclaimed work to us here in the Panhandle. And congratulations for delivering it at the highest standards for performance!

The Amarillo Little Theatre Academy and the ALT Guild are proud to present Anne of Green Gables. Adapted by award winning playwright Joseph Robinette, this play won the coveted Charlotte B. Chorpenning Playwright Award and is a perfect play for all audiences.
The heroine of L.M. Montgomery’s beloved novel, Anne Shirley, is a spunky, red-headed orphan sent to live with a farmer and his sister on Prince Edward Island. The only problem? They thought they were adopting a boy! Through Anne’s adventures (and misadventures) she wins their hearts and discovers the true meaning of family, friendship, and home. This beautiful play faithfully recreates the memorable events and characters from the brilliant novel. All the tragedies and triumphs that mark Anne’s growth from adolescence to early adulthood are here: her friendship with Diana, her feuds with Gilbert, her adoration of Matthew, the mistaken wine bottle, the cake disaster, the broken leg, the scholastic achievements, and so much more!
ALT Academy has assembled a terrific cast to bring this literary classic to life. Anne of Green Gables features 56 talented Academy students and is being directed by Academy Director Jason Crespin. Academy Instructor and future Academy Director Mikayla Garren serves as Assistant Director with Chriselda Reyes as Production Assistant.
This heartwarming, humorous tale for the young and young at heart is being presented March 27th – 29th. Ticket prices are $12.00 for 12 and up and $10.00 for under 12.
