“Always look on the bright side of life…”

 

The Amarillo Little Theatre is thrilled to search for the Holy Grail as we present the outrageously hilarious musical Monty Python’s SPAMALOT as its final show of the 96th season.

Lovingly ripped from the film classic, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, SPAMALOT is a deliriously funny spectacle which tells the legendary tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table as they go on a quest in search of the Holy Grail. This musical has absolutely everything that makes a great “knight” at the theatre, from flying cows to killer rabbits, British royalty to French taunters, dancing girls, rubbery shrubbery and of course, the Lady of the Lake. SPAMALOT features well-known song titles such as “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life,” “The Song That Goes Like This,” “Find Your Grail,” and more that have become beloved classics in the musical theatre canon.

ALT assembled a marvelous cast for this production including Gabe Scherman as King Arthur, Kristen Loyd as The Lady of the Lake, Brooks Boyett as Patsy, Dillon Kizarr as Sir Robin, Nels Bjork as Sir Lancelot, Kyle Gipson as Sir Galahad, Jason Boyett as Sir Bedevere and Jordan Smith as Prince Herbert. The talented ensemble included Melea Baker, Ben Burke, Jax Ebert, Joey Ebert, Colin Fields, Hugh Fristoe, Chris Gandy, Nikki Harada, Hunter Lee, Jackie Llewellyn, Sean Pritchard, Kiara Tenille, Choc Thomason and Travis Tidmore.

Artistic Director for this production was Jason Crespin with Music Direction by Jennifer Akins and Choreography by Shawn Walsh. Sara Pennington-Booher served as Assistant to the Directors with Ashley DeVoid and Kayleigh Colbert as Production Assistants with Kallie Huckabay as Dance Captain and Zachary Todd as Assistant Music Director.

May of 2024, we put the “News Cycle” on “Rinse Cycle” for a couple of hours to relax with the Lady of the Lake, King Arthur and the Knights Who Say Ni because “we’re not dead yet”!

“When reputation is everything, how do you follow your heart?”

 

A playful new adaptation of Jane Austen’s beloved novel has a fresh female voice and follows the fortunes (and misfortunes) of the Dashwood sisters. Their lives are turned upside down when their father passes away suddenly, leaving them penniless and with reputations at stake. Together they must learn to mix sense with sensibility to find happiness in a society where love is ruled by money. Filled with humor, emotional depth and bold theatricality, this modern adaptation of the gossipy 18th century classic was a great addition to our season.

ALT assembled a brilliant cast to bring this romantic comedy to life. The exceptional cast included Kyndal Knapp as Elinor Dashwood, Sterling Knight as Marianne Dashwood, Sawyer Landry as Edward Ferrars, Hunter Russell as John Willoughby and Brad McBride as Colonel Brandon. Supporting roles and ensemble members include Lindsy Donathan, Brandon Graves, Elizabeth Hopkins, Joanna Kimbell, Justin Loe, Jennifer McClellan, Maddox Nite, Jenni Opalinski, Treva Oller, Jeffrey Pickens, Camille Suzanne, Jeri Tidmore and Alexis Williams.

This coming of age classic was directed by Carrie Huckabay. Nolan Huckabay served as Assistant to the Director and Aaron Huckabay served as Production Assistant.

Sense and Sensibility examines our reactions, both reasonable and ridiculous, to societal pressures. This timeless story entertained sold out audiences in our Adventure Space for the entire run of the production.

So wrong, it’s right.

 

Welcome to opening night of The Murder at Haversham Manor where “Break a leg”  takes on a whole new meaning for this woefully misguided troupe of players. When the curtain goes up, the performance quickly goes from bad to utterly disastrous. With an unconscious leading lady, a corpse that can’t play dead and actors who trip over everything (including their lines), The Play That Goes Wrong is an unforgettable evening of laughter.

ALT  assembled a talented array of players for this production mixed with ALT veterans and newcomers. Performers included Heather Dillon as Annie, Brandon Graves as Trevor, Brooks Boyett as Chris, Zeke Lewis as Jonathan, Jeremy Hernandez as Robert, Harrison Stringer as Dennis, Sawyer Landry as Max, Jenny Morgan as Sandra and Vanessa Hill, Camron Kelley and Travis Tidmore as the Cornley Drama Society Stage Crew.

“Wildly entertaining… One of the few plays that honestly helped spark a social revolution.”

 

It is 1968 and a birthday party is about to unfold in an apartment on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. A diverse group of close
friends will gather to celebrate. After the drinks are poured and the music is turned up, the celebration gets interrupted by a surprise guest. As the evening wears on, a game of “Truth” exposes the fault lines beneath their friendships and the self-inflicted heartache that threatens their solidarity. Hidden truths, long-held secrets, and the struggles they face in a society that stigmatizes the gay experience become exposed. Through sharp wit and raw emotion, this thought-provoking play by Mart Crowley provides a powerful exploration of self-acceptance, friendship, and the enduring quest for authenticity.

 

ALT assembled a talented cast that brought this exploration of friendship, identity, and the struggles faced by gay men in the
late 1960s to life. The exceptional ensemble cast included Joshua Gibson-Roark as Michael, Sean Jones as Donald, Colton Harada as Emory, Dakota Warren as Larry, Duffy Tidwell as Hank, Joel Miller as Bernard, Jonathan Mobley as Alan, Joey Sorenson as Cowboy and Ben Burke as Harold. This groundbreaking play iwas directed by Jason Crespin. Kota McDaniel served as Assistant to the Director and Daniel Thompson and Saturn Horton served as Production Assistants.

 

A true theatrical game-changer, The Boys in the Band helped spark a revolution by putting gay men’s lives onstage, unapologetically and without judgement, in a world that was not yet willing to fully accept them. This Tony Award winning play shattered barriers when it premiered off-Broadway in 1968 and still resonates with audiences today.

“Sensational – in every sense of the word.”

Christmas. 1968. With a six week booking at London’s famed cabaret restaurant Talk of the Town, it looks like Judy Garland is set firmly on the comeback trail. The failed marriages, suicide attempts and addictions are all behind her and with her new fiancé at her side, she seems determined to reclaim her crown as the greatest talent of her generation. Yet in her suite at the Ritz Hotel, Garland battles with a tornado of drugs and alcohol as the exhausting series of concerts take their toll. A tough, compelling woman, armed to the teeth with a legendary razor-sharp wit, happiness continues to elude her. No answer ever comes to the question with which she ends every show: ‘If happy little bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow, why, oh, why can’t I?’

ALT assembled an amazing cast which included Jo Smith as Judy Garland, Joshua Gibson-Roark as Mickey Deans, Jacob Miller as Anthony, Bobby Schaffer as the Radio Interviewer/Porter and Caitlin Gibson as the Assistant Stage Manager. This compelling drama was directed by Ben Burke with Music Direction by Jacob Miller. Carla Fristoe served as Assistant to the Directors and Alexis Roberts was the Production Assistant.

A Doublewide, Texas Christmas

By the time this full-tilt rocket ride of lunacy climaxes in a what-else-can-go-wrong live television presentation, you’ll have doubled your Christmas spirit!

Amarillo Little Theatre is excited at the success of the hilarious Jones, Hope, Wooten comedy, A Doublewide, Texas Christmas!

In this outrageously funny comedy, it’s Christmas-time in the newest—and tiniest—town in Texas. And it’s beginning to look a lot like trouble in Doublewide. Not only are the trailer park residents dealing with the stress of the holiday season, but they’ve just discovered that Doublewide is being doubled-crossed by the County.

ith their official incorporation papers in jeopardy, this band of eccentric Texans throw themselves into taking on the “Big Guys.” Determined to bolster their legitimacy, they first set their sights on the County-wide “Battle of The Mangers” competition. They conspire to win this smackdown with their “Nativity At The Alamo” entry…by any means possible. In addition to that shaky undertaking and trying almost single-handedly to keep the new town afloat, Mayor Joveeta Crumpler has to wrangle her celebrity-obsessed mother, her beleaguered brother who’s being bullied by a pack of vengeful raccoons, and her demoralized best friend who’s at the end of her rope from dating every loser this side of the Rio Grande. To make matters worse, Joveeta finds herself increasingly wary of the newest resident, Patsy Price. Patsy, fresh out of the local mental institution, clearly has her own devious agenda and the County competition over in Fayro is just the place for her to settle an old score.

ALT assembled a festive cast for this production mixed with ALT veterans and newcomers. Performers included Shannon Mashburn as Big Ethel Satterwhite, Terri Teig as Georgia Dean Rudd, Kelsey Landry as Lark Barken, Bryan Scott as Haywood Sloggett, Kym Klarich as Patsy Price, Mark Brown as Norwayne “Baby” Crumpler, Ashley Hendrickas Jovetta Crumpler, Debbie Perry as Caprice Crumpler, Corey Waide as Nash Sloggett, Joe Geoffroy as Harley Dobbs and Harrison Blount as Creeper. Artistic Director for this production was Peg Lovett with Chriselda Reyes serving as Assistant Director.

Changing the world…one month at a time!

When Annie’s husband John dies of Leukemia, she and best friend Chris resolve to raise money for a new settee in the local hospital waiting room. They manage to persuade four fellow WI members to pose nude with them for an “alternative” calendar in John’s memory and to raise some funds. With a little help from hospital porter and amateur photographer Lawrence who looked after John in his final days, the fundraising idea takes off! The news of the women’s charitable venture spreads like wildfire and hordes of press soon descend on the small English village of of Knapeley, where hilarity ensues. The calendar is a success, but Chris and Annie’s friendship is put to the test under the strain of their new-found fame.


ALT assembled an amazing cast including Jo Smith as Chris and Shannon Mashburn as Annie. Also featured in the cast were Connie Cannady, Brandon Graves, Cheyenne Haynes, Carrie Huckabay, Anne Lankford, Justin Loe, Treva Oller, Nick Palmieri, Debbie Perry, Steve Parker, Melanie Sanders and Jeri Tidmore.

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!

René Brain ~ Amarillo

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!!
Johnnie Thompson ~ Amarillo

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.
