In 1969, humanitarian and activist, Rosetta LeNoire, had a vision for a company where people, regardless of race, religion, color or creed, could work together in mutual respect and love.

So Rosetta founded Amas Musical Theatre as a place where, through the art of musical theatre and education, we would be able to celebrate our common humanity and to give voice to those who voices went unheard. 51 years later, Amas continues to support this vital mission. 

To quote Rosetta:

“We are all flowers in God’s garden. He made us different colors to celebrate

the beauty of the world, but the stems are all green.”

It is right and just that Amas Musical Theatre should rise up and make our voices heard concerning the recent unjust murder of George Floyd, Auhmad Arbery, and too many others. We stand in unity to address the ills that are facing our society and our African-American brothers and sisters. 

"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an

inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly." – Martin Luther King, Jr.

These basic tenets should be ingrained in our minds and in our hearts. 


These are more than trying times, but please let us not answer hate with hate. We at Amas will continue to do our best to bring about a better world through the arts and the humanities, to combat racism and injustice. And to bring more love to the world.
