“We Are the ChAMPions”

It’s time to get AMP’ed! The Plano and Southlake AMP Awards celebrate students in grades K-9 who helped NTPA – Plano and NTPA – Southlake rock 2021 by participating in at least one of our productions! This year’s AMP Awards will be one for the ages… and YOU may join us in person or from the comfort of your home.
Reserve your spot quickly — live event tickets to the AMP Awards will disappear fast!
70’s/80’s attire is encouraged (but optional). Prizes will be awarded for the best 70’s/80’s dressed!
Don’t miss a thing! Check out all the exciting event information below to get the most out of this year’s AMP Awards event!
- Masks are required for all persons age 3+ at all times, except for the conditions outlined below. Masks must be those as approved for Covid-19 safety protection by the CDC and worn properly, fully covering nose and mouth. “Mesh,” “gaiter,” and vented masks are not considered adequate protection by the CDC and do not fulfill our masking requirement.
- Actors may take their mask off while performing on stage and for one rehearsal
- Speakers may take their mask off while speaking at the podium.
- Actors may remove their masks momentarily to take pictures, provided they do not violate the “close contact” rule of “within 6 feet for 15 minutes.”
Our annual AMP Awards will honor excellence in performance and leadership on and off the stage! Every actor in grades K-9 that participated in a 2021 production with NTPA – Plano or NTPA – Southlake is nominated for an award. The finalists will be recognized and award winners in each age category announced!
We will celebrate our actors in 3 acts separated by grade. Before each act begins our actors will walk the red carpet, where they will be sure to capture memorable photos with friends. An event photographer will be available to take family photos on the red carpet. Then we head to Rodenbaugh Theatre for an award ceremony honoring our actors. After each act, we invite families to join us in the other theatre spaces for the annual AMP after party with live DJ, dancing, karaoke, fortune teller, photo booth, complimentary snacks and water! Additional snacks available for purchase
All money raised by the AMP Awards supports the Capital Campaigns for NTPA – Plano 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 2022 and the years to come!
