What our patrons are saying about "The Birds"...

I dreamed about birds last night! And it seems everywhere I've gone this morning I hear them and see them lined up on the high line wires. Perhaps it's because I saw the wonderfully performed, thought provoking, deep, dark, performance of ALT's "The Birds" last night. Jo Smith, Michael Newman, Reilly Downes and Jeffrey Pickens - you all were amazing!!

Amarillo Little Theatre is very proud to present the spine tingling drama, The Birds as the second Adventure Space production of the 2016-17 season!

Daphne du Maurier’s short story, also the basis for Alfred Hitchcock’s classic film, is boldly adapted by Conor McPherson. It is a gripping, unsettling, and moving look at human relationships in the face of societal collapse. In an isolated house, strangers Nat and Diane take shelter from relentless masses of attacking birds. They find relative sanctuary but not comfort of peace. There is no electricity, little food and a nearby neighbor may still be alive and watching them. Another refugee, the young and attractive Julia, arrives with some news of the outside world but her presence also brings discord. Their survival becomes even more doubtful when paranoia takes hold of the makeshift fortress - an internal threat to match the birds outside.

ALT has cast a brilliant ensemble for this production. It includes ALT veteran actors Michael Newman, Jo Smith, Jeffrey Pickens and Reilly Downes. Kim Shreffler is Artistic Director with Laura Jo Worsham and Assistant to the Director.

Don’t miss the Ovation Series Talk Back event on Sunday, November 6 immediately following the show.
