Mission Statement

Amas Musical Theatre is devoted to the creation, development and professional productionof new American musicals through the celebration of diversity and minority perspectives, the emergence of new artistic talent, and the training and encouragement of inner-city young people.


Amas Musical Theatre, located on MacDougal Street in the heart of the West Village, is a non-profit theatrical organization founded in 1968 by Ms. Rosetta LeNoire. Rosetta's vision for Amas is grounded in non-traditional, multi-ethnic production, education and casting.

For 40 years, Amas ("you love" in Latin) has engraved its unique trademark in the world of musical theatre. We produce quality musical theatre presenting different cultural viewpoints--African-American, Latino, European, and Jewish--while reaching out to underserved audiences. Amas attracts actors and artists of distinction and reputation, while offering opportunities for new talent to learn and develop.

Rosettafounded Amas as a theatre where people could work together with emphasis on individual skills, regardless of race, color, creed, religion or national origin. Amas celebrates its impact in pioneering multi-ethnic casting in the American Theatre and reiterates its commitment to this reflection of our diverse society.

Audiences are built by bringing both children and other community members into Amas with free performances and free ticket programs. Amas actively combines artists and audience members from all walks of life, bringing them together to work and learn from each other.Amas Musical Theatre is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. Its principal purpose is not to conduct election activities. The funds that are raised by Amas Musical Theater will be used to support its principal mission. They will not be designated or used to pay for election activities or Federal-election related debts.
