Dorothy Izatt

Chief Executive Officer

Dorothy was a performer since her schooldays and a keen member of our Concert Party.  Although she had a lovely voice, she was also a talented dancer. She was often a committee member and also served as President.  She died in December 2017 aged 65.

David Hunter

Marketing Director

David was a founder member, a performer, a valued volunteer and Honorary President, who died in June 2018 aged 86. David lived a long and active life from his early years in the merchant navy through his many years of service with Maclay’s in Alloa. He was in his time a very skilful tennis player and a demonstration-standard country dancer – (the owner of many kilts!) He loved to cruise but was also very busy locally – notably as a volunteer with Friends of Alloa Tower. With Alloa Musical Players, he covered front-of-house duties once he retired from the stage, and always came to rehearsals to help make the tea. In 2014 David became the first person in AMP to achieve the 60 year award of NODA (the National Operatic and Dramatic Association). He will be sorely missed.

Helen Roxburgh

HR manager

Helen was a performer for many years, a committee member and President who died in October 2017 aged 54.

 She was at her most glamorous and amorous as Hope Harcourt in “Anything Goes” in 1994, at her most sensational with AMP in the title role in Mame 1999 and was always a hoot in her many panto roles.

There are also non-AMP musicals she shared with AMP and Alman Drama Club friends: Cabaret, Chicago, Hair and Godspell – as well as Montrose.  Helen also spent a number of years performing with Larbert Amateur Operatic Society.
