11th Annual Plano AMP Awards & Fundraiser
“There’s No Place Like Home”
Saturday, August 21, 2021
Willow Bend Center of the Arts

There’s no place like home, but NTPA is surely a close second for our performers. The 11th Annual NTPA Plano AMP Awards are a celebration honoring students who just completed grades K-9 and participated in an NTPA – Plano production in a very memorable 2020.

This year’s ceremony, performances and after party may be attended via livestream or in person.
