Our annual AMP Awards will honor excellence in performance and leadership on and off the stage! Every actor currently in grades K-9 that was part of any 2023 production with NTPA Frisco is nominated for an award. The nominees will be recognized and award winners in each age category announced!

NTPA Frisco is like sugar: we make life a little bit sweeter! Reunite with castmates and friends at the “Stars and Sweets” themed Frisco AMP awards! Together we will celebrate NTPA Frisco student achievements and stand out performances from the 2023 season. This year we will have the opportunity for a new headshot, by Kathy Tomlin Portraits, as well as giving away a free show valued up to $450 during our “Golden Ticket Fortune Game.” Mingle with all of your NTPA Frisco friends, enjoy hors d’oeuvres at your leisure, while grabbing a photo on the step and repeat or at a photo booth while adults browse a large array of items and experiences in our silent auction fundraiser. For the perfect end to the evening, stay for the after party with Celebrity DJ Mike Morse from 106.1 KISS FM.

Be sure NOT to miss “The Director Experiences” in the silent auction. The bidding packages will feature each NTPA Frisco Director, a special theatrical offering from them and additional fun. Find your favorite director and bid on a chance to enjoy the experience with them!

All money raised by the AMP Awards supports the Capital Campaigns for NTPA – Frisco and North Texas Performing Arts. Your attendance will not only help us celebrate our family of actors but will allow us to continue growing our program in 2024 and the years to come!
