Congratulations to the entire Cast and Crew of All About Music & Children's Theatre's "Mary Poppins"! What an amazing run of shows this past Friday, Saturday and Sunday! We are so very proud of each and every one of you on such an outstanding job that you did! Once again - you have proven that true talent is alive and well in the young. Thank you so much to each and every parent and volunteer that helped out with loading in and loading out this weekend. All Stage Crew, Tech, Dressers, Painters, Set Builders/Designers, all Ushers, and everyone selling tickets, raffles, etc. Thanks to all of our great Sponsors and everyone that donated to our raffle baskets. EVERYONE that helped with this Production in ANY way!! We say it all the time, but it's true: your hard work, help and generosity never goes unnoticed and we could never do this without all of you! Thank you to the entire Lincolnway Staff for your great hospitality and always making us feel right at home. We'll be posting tons of pics so please keep posting yours too, as we love seeing all of them!!
The great friends we have made doing this and the fact that we know you are there for whatever we need help with means the world to us. So thank you thank you thank you a million times over to each and every one of you that helped out with "Mary Poppins"! It was bittersweet for us as another long time student of ours has now become another AAMCT Alumni. Miss Jillian Rice gave her final AAMCT performance as Mary Poppins in Cast B and it really hit home for us.
When we started doing this -all we ever wanted was a safe place for students to walk through the door and feel like they belonged somewhere. No matter what your background is, no matter what color you are, no matter if you're tall, short, whatever!!- It does not matter at AAMCT! When you walk through the doors you can feel 110% great about just being you and learning about and performing Theater and Music. So to Jillian and everyone in our AAMCT Family: Never forget that AAMCT will always be your second home! As we always like to say: We don't need to be rich doing this. As long as we can keep the doors open and the lights on, then that's good enough for us. When it's time to leave this world, no one will remember how much money you had in your bank account, how big your house was or how fancy your car is. But they will remember that they always had a place where they felt great about just being themselves. And we take great pride in the fact that that is what The AAMCT Family and AAMCT stand for. Years ago- our Students starting referring to "The AAMCT Family" - and that is indeed what it is! So once again - CONGRATULATIONS to each and every one of you - Cast and Crew of AAMCT's "Mary Poppins." We love you all and it means so much to us that you are on board with us too! Looking forward to working with you all this Summer! Much love to all of you! Connie and Todd
