Alloa Musical Players (we call ourselves AMP) are a diverse bunch of people who put on shows generally annually – usually in Alloa Town Hall in March.
Rehearsals and occasional workshops led by musical/drama/dance practitioners provide opportunities for local people to gain skills, confidence and friends, and to have fun. We sing and dance a great deal which is highly therapeutic.
We are rehearsing currently in Alloa Rugby Club FK10 1QW (See map below) Monday and Wednesday evenings from late August to March, but arrangements can change so it’s worth contacting us to check!
Ages range from teens to eighties, making this a truly inter-generational activity and members come from diverse backgrounds and are openly recruited with an annual fee that can easily be paid in instalments. We aim to be as accessible as possible and to reflect our community in our membership.
We take the same approach to building our audience and provide at least one low cost preview performance.
By offering volunteering opportunities, we build skills and experience in budgeting, marketing & fundraising, committee work, and all the backstage and front-of-house tasks.
We’ve been around since 1952 and were formerly known as Alloa Operatic Society. In 2017 we became a SCIO (Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation) SC047773. You can find out more about our governance and charitable status here.
Trustees are elected each year to lead and manage AMP. You can find our more about them here.
Our main source of income is our Ticket Sales, which is great – but we are also indebted to a number of funders and local sponsors.
