News from the AMS Theatre Department
Tuesday, March 3 there will be a Musical Interest Meeting for the upcoming production of "Into the Woods" in the AMS Amphitheatre from 4-4:45. If you are interested in auditioning (performing or technical), you must attend this meeting. For more information or questions, email Mrs. Anthis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thursday, March 5 and Friday, March 6 the AMS Theatre Department will be presenting their UIL play, "The Miser" at 7 pm in the AMS Amphitheatre. "The Miser" is an adaptation of the French comedy by Moliere. It is the story of Harpagon, a rich old miser, who employs a matchmaker to find him a rich wife. He then sets out to marry his daughter off to a rich old man, and his son to a plump, well-endowed widow. But the young people have ideas of their own and engage Harpagon's resourceful steward, Valere, on their side. At the height of this, Harpagon's money is reported stolen. Giving up all pretense of civility, he bemoans his misery and relinquishes his fiancée, if he can only be reunited with his beloved money. When the money is restored to him, he returns to his penny-pinching ways. Tickets are $3 for students and $5 for adults. Please come to watch this fun, fast-paced comedy! For more information or details, email Mrs. Anthis at email@example.com.
