AC Lamplight to perform Southwest Premiere of The Christmas Doll

The public is encouraged to see members of the AC Lamplight Youth Theatre Company perform the Southwest Premiere of The Christmas Doll by Joan Cushing on Nov 21-23, 2008.  Performance times are Nov 21-22 at 7:30 pm, and Nov 22-23 at 2:30 pm. 

This is an amazing dramatic musical with a wonderful message of courage and hope.  The story, set in London in the 1840’s, centers around 2 young orphaned sisters.  Lucy and Glory escape the orphanage and live on the mean streets of London, meeting many colorful characters along the way.  Now that they are no longer in the orphanage, they must learn to survive on their own.  Teaming up with another street urchin by the name of Nick Button, the three embark on a journey that will change their lives forever.  The outcome of the story is one that will fill your heart with a wonderful sense of love and contentment.  

54 young people from ages 7 to 18 will be bringing this new musical to the stage.  The play has been double-cast, allowing twice as many children the opportunity to appear onstage.  Most of the actors play 3-5 characters each.  “This is a chance for Amarillo to see just how talented these young actors are,” said Cynthia Koetting, Lamplight director.  

In addition to the 54 actors, a crew of 12 Lamplight Students will be working backstage to insure that all of the set and prop pieces are ready and in place on time.  The crew will be challenged daily as the set changes must happen quickly.   

Tickets can be purchased by calling the AC Lamplight Youth Theatre at 806-371-5353.  Ticket prices are $10 adults, $8 college/senior citizens, $5 children.
