Sweeney Todd Reviews

What our patrons are saying about “Sweeney Todd”…

Congratulations on a creating a masterpiece! The cast was fantastic! The sets were amazing and elaborate! Yes, it was dark…but, yes, it was sooo much fun! The “youngsters” certainly were young only by age. Very professional! Realizing the future is in good hands! It is a privilege to be part of the A.L.T. family. Amarillo’s got the best theatre! I appreciate all you do to make that happen! Well done and Thank you!

Broadway worthy show! I was completely transformed to Fleet Street the entire time. The set pieces were spectacular, especially the barber chair. The actors, the songs, the performance….everything was wonderfully dark and creepy. I am truly blessed to be a season ticket holder of the best community theatre anywhere. Everyone must see this show. It is a guaranteed masterpiece!

Other Desert Cities Reviews

What our patrons are saying about “Other Desert Cities”…

Family reunions can bring out the “best” in many and “Other Desert Cities” may multiply that by 10! ALT Adventure Space continues to amaze us. Great 20 years Allen Shankles at the Adventure Space. Congrats! Now everyone, go see this play

Kevin Ball ~ Amarillo

First let me say the set was magnificent! Easily the best looking set we have seen in a production at ALT and there have been some great sets.
BUT the cast! The acting! The characterizations! The emotion! The intensity. All those things easily overshadowed the set piece. To have everything that you thought you knew turned on its head was amazing. We were just stunned by the cast and the ease with which they navigated the valleys and towering peaks of emotion. Well Done!!
This is my new favorite production. Thank you all for a terrific evening!

Over the River and Through the Woods

What our patrons are saying about “Over the River and Through the Woods”…

As is our custom, my wife and I attended the opening Saturday performance of the latest main stage show, Over the River and Through the Woods. I would just like to echo what you said. This show deserves a full house. I was somewhat embarrassed that my fellow Alt patrons did not show up for this show. It is an exceptionally good show. Every part of it was good, from the snappy dialogue and comedic timing to the multi-layered story. Maybe you have to be a certain age to get the story, but I could fully relate to all of the characters. A great presentation of life, its meaning, and conflicts from multiple perspective. Of course the story would be nothing without exceptional cast and directing.I plan to tell everyone I see to take in this show, even if they have never been to an ALT show. Please pass along my admiration of the show to all who took part. I am just sorry it did not have a full house.
Keep up the great work!

David Hurtt ~ Amarillo

What superb acting in Over the River and Through the Woods! We saw it last night and thoroughly enjoyed it. Go and see this show if you can. You won’t be disappointed.

Skull in Connemara Reviews

What our patrons are saying about “A Skull in Connemara”…

Just saw A Skull in Connemara at the ALT Adventure Space. I’ve never been disappointed in this theater. Today is no exception. If you like dark comedies that have minute to minute mood swings from hilarious to the absurd, go see this play. The talkback after the show was enlightening also. Thanks cast and crew.

Little Shop Reviews

What our patrons are saying about “Little Shop of Horrors”…

Robert and I saw Little Shop of Horrors last night and we loved it! It had phenomenal singing and acting. Everyone was perfectly cast from the ensemble and all the way to the leads. One more weekend to see this show and I would highly recommend getting tickets and catching this show before the run is over.

Courtney Frazier ~ Amarillo

Just attended Little Shop of Horrors, what can I say, but this was a fun, fun, fun evening! Congrats to Jason C. on a very successful Main Stage directorial debut.

No Man’s Land Show Reviews

What our patrons are saying about “No Man’s Land”…

No Man’s Land:

No Man’s Land surprised me. I expected to be confused: all the reviews I’d read waxed eloquently about playwright Pinter’s existentialism, his brilliance in making it impossible for the audience to really pinpoint what’s going on in his plays. So, I didn’t laugh at the dark humor, nor did I try to analyze every single word uttered; I just listened. I was intrigued. Who are these men? How are they connected? These are the questions I was asking myself at intermission, and the answers were revealed–at least in part–in the second act. The end of the play leaves one with a few more questions that would best be discussed over coffee with a good friend. Who’s really free? The successful poet entrapped by his riches and his ever-present “protective” staff? The poor man whose words never quite put enough food on the table and thus produced a poet-turned-opportunist late in life? The man who still has his mental faculties or the one who seems to be slipping a bit in his memory? The men who’ve indentured themselves to a wealthy alcoholic or the one who can fire them with a word–if only he could stay sober long enough to do so? Perhaps the characters are stuck in that netherworld of “no man’s land,” but as an audience, it’s nice to be able to mull over the larger questions of life and draw one’s own definite conclusions. If you haven’t seen “No Man’s Land,” check it out this weekend. You might just be intrigued.

TWO WORLDS, ONE PASSION SHOW REVIEWS

What our patrons are saying about “Two Worlds, One Passion”…

Two Worlds, One Passion:
This may be the BEST production I have ever seen at ALT! Of course, Devlon and Chuck were fantastic as always. What talent!! The “choir” (and soloist from that group) were great. The band so very good. The choice of music was perfect!! Congrats to Jennifer Atkins for making the different types transition so smoothly throughout the entire performance. I hope that all who had anything to do with this felt the enthusiasm of the audience. It was “electric” Friday night and I heard it was Saturday also. Why would we ever need to bring in outside talent when we have people like this right here at home! Thank you for a wonderful evening!!

Seminar Show reviews

What our patrons are saying about “Seminar”…

Stephen Crandall and Cast,
It is difficult to remember ever being that young and idealistic. The play was a very thoughtful examination of idealism and realistic world expectations. The acting was very accomplished. We admire the facets that Don brings to his characterizations. The cast did a really fine job of being in the world of writing and the world of everyday living with all the conflict and angst that can generate. Really enjoyed the piece. Well done.
