Annie has been cancelled

It looks like third time still unlucky.
We are sorry to advise that irrespective of Covid problems, the SEC has advised us that we cannot be guaranteed our booked dates for Annie in April 2021. This is because of compulsory renovation work that is likely to be occurring at that time.
We were advised of this a little while ago, but we have been exploring other possibilities including alternative dates, venues, etc.  The AMTC committee has met and come to the decision that we regrettably cannot do the show justice with any of the alternatives. As such we are therefore advising our supporters that we will not be able to perform Annie in 2021.
We trust that you can understand that this is very difficult for the committee and the production team. We know that it is also very difficult for the cast, crew and orchestra.
We will explore the possibility of revisiting Annie sometime in the future, but this would be subject to the usual process of securing performing rights etc.
We would like to thank everyone for their patience and understanding throughout this time, and for the messages of support and encouragement. Thanks to the production team for all the work that you have already put into this. Hopefully one day it will be able to come to fruition for the public.

2020 Show Updates

Due to the ongoing issues created by the coronavirus, a number of changes for AMTC’s schedule of shows have been made.

  • Annie’s performance dates in June / July have been cancelled.  Annie will now be on at the end of the year, in November (dates to be confirmed)
  • Jesus Christ Superstar, which was going to be in November, is being held over for 12 months, until November 2021
  • JAM dates for October remain in place, but will need to be reviewed subject to the ongoing social isolation practises put in place by the government.  Further information will be made available once known
  • We are looking for people and ideas for an April 2021 show.  Make yourself known if you are interested

Annie Rehearsals Have Started

The auditions are over, the cast has been announced, and so now the rehearsals have commenced.  The next 4 months will see our cast, crew and orchestra bring Annie to the Shoalhaven Entertainment Centre in June / July.  Tickets will soon be available for purchase, so get in early for the best seats (although they are all good!!)

Annie and Oliver Warbucks

Annie (Mackenzie Bonney) and Oliver Warbucks (Mark Harris) will definitely not look as they did on the first night of rehearsals, when it comes to showtime.

Another of our cast, Smudge who will feature in Annie (with his owner Jaimie), and Paul Fraser, the director of this production, about to issue pearls of wisdom to the cast.
