Just wanted to let you know that I have attended many plays at ALT. I have enjoyed all of them, but today’s performance was the best I have seen. All the actors/actresses used loud & clear voices and were so animated in their characters. My students fully understood the plot and all its twists. Thanks to you and all the production cast for a job very well done!!!!

Thank you so much for hosting my fourth grade class today for "Nancy Drew, Girl Detective"! My students absolutely loved the production. I appreciate you helping me make it an especially educational opportunity by sharing the book for our fourth graders to use as a study guide. I am so glad we have something so wonderful like ALT in our community and I look forward to visiting for many years to come!

The Amarillo Little Theatre Academy is very excited to present Nancy Drew: Girl Detective as its 2014-2015 Season opener!

In this play, the world’s most famous girl detective is at it again as another River Heights mystery has developed at the old Van Pelt Estate, home of the Footlighter’s Barn Theater. Leander Van Pelt has died and there are rumors of a cache of diamonds, rubies, emeralds and sapphires that have been hidden on his estate. A mysterious ghost (or puppet?) has been haunting the estate while the Footlighters try to rehearse their play. Can Nancy Drew and her friends discover who is frightening the Van Pelt residents? Will the Footlighter's show be able to go on without their lead actress? And where are all of the gems that are to go to Leander Van Pelt's granddaughter? You will certainly want to come along for the adventure as Nancy Drew leaves no stone unturned in this fun, campy whodunit production.

The Amarillo Little Theatre Academy has assembled a terrific cast to bring this mysterious play to life. Nancy Drew: Girl Detective features 23 of our talented Academy students and is being directed by Academy Director Jason Crespin. Annika Spalding serves as Assistant Director and Krystal Burns and Jorja Hammond serve as Production Assistants.
