What Is An AMT Original Show?
American Music Theatre hosts 300 live performances a year, some of which are written, directed, and produced completely in-house, including our ever-popular Christmas Show. We call these productions “AMT Original Shows.” And AMT is the only theatre of its kind in the country that features both Celebrity Concerts and Original Shows.
The theatre’s Artistic Director, Andrea McCormick, develops ideas for the shows using audience feedback we receive through surveys and market research. Using her extensive experience performing on and off Broadway, Andrea’s intent is to create, design, and direct shows that give our guests what they want, and at the same time, present them in a fresh, innovative way they’ve never seen before.
To bring our Original Shows series to life, we recruit only the highest caliber talent. Professional vocalists and dancers, expert lighting and sound technicians, seasoned set designers, and world-class musicians come to us from across the country, many of whom have performed or worked on Broadway!
Our costuming, wardrobe selection, and construction are all done on-site. We also hold auditions locally, as well as in New York City.
It’s all part of our dedication to delivering a series of Original Shows that are the highest level of entertainment. That’s “The AMT Experience.”
We hope to see you at the next AMT Original Show!
