Mission Statement
For 40 years, Amas ("you love" in Latin) has engraved its unique trademark on the world of musical theatre. We produce quality musical theatre presenting different cultural viewpoints (African-American, Latino, European, and Jewish) while reaching out to underserved audiences. Amas attracts actors and artists of distinction and reputation, while offering opportunities for new talent to learn and develop.
Amas celebrates its impact in pioneering multi-ethnic casting in the American Theatre and reiterates its commitment to this reflection of our diverse society.
Amas Musical Theatre commits its work to:
- Contributing to the vitality of the American Musical Theatre - a unique American esthetic expression - through the creation, development and professional production of original musicals.
- Bringing creative, musical theatre to the American education system, and enhancing the experience of students.
- Encouraging tolerance and civility among people of our diverse society by bringing them together through the art of musical theatre.
Audiences are built by bringing both children and other community members into Amas with free performances and free ticket programs. Amas actively combines artists and audience members from every possible racial, ethnic and religious background, bringing them together to work and learn from each other.
Programs
Amas Musical Theatre programs provide opportunities for writers, composers, and lyricists to create new work. Amas employs experienced directors, musical directors and choreographers to work with fledgling creators, allowing the veteran artists to guide and encourage the rookie creative staff. Musical Theatre programs include the Amas Six O'Clock Musical Theatre Lab, Amas Workshop Program, and Amas Mainstage Productions.
Amas works to create both new performers and new audiences through its educational and outreach programs. Performers are recruited and trained through The Rosetta LeNoire Musical Theatre Academy, and our in-school and after school education programming, as well as through the original works developed and produced in the Amas Lab, Workshop and Mainstage programs
Amas provides an artistic home for writers, composers, and lyricists to create and develop new work, from first drafts to full-scale production.
Amas Workshop Program
The Workshop Program gives composers and lyricists the opportunity to continue to work on a more polished and complete version of their new work. Developing a musical is a long and arduous process that requires much re-writing and adaptation. Our workshop program is an invaluable tool in assisting the artists-and their work-to reach a certain perfection level before they arrive at the Mainstage level where the critics await with their pencils sharpened.
Workshop Productions entail a two-week rehearsal period culminating in a series of performances using minimal costumes, lighting and sets. At this stage, the focus remains on the writing and the music.
Amas Mainstage Program
Select musicals are given a full off-Off Broadway run of four weeks. The shows are fully produced, including sets, costumes, lights, and live music. Critics are invited to attend. These productions run under either an Equity Showcase or LOA contract.
