About Us

A.M.A. Theatre Co. (Arts Made for All) was formed in 2017 by Annie Albici and Ian Britten-Hull as a touring theatre company, to produce shows and plays to appeal to a wide range of audiences, with the aim of promoting theatre and to make it accessible to all.

“We tour to all kinds of venues including theatres, community venues, schools and outdoor spaces across the UK. As we are totally self-contained, it means we can create theatre in any reasonable space. We tour with full staging, lighting rig and sound system and turn any empty space into a theatre. We believe theatre is not just about the show, but the whole atmosphere that is created, not just by the company, but by the audience as well.”

Being multi-skilled, we take on most of the production work ourselves including set design and building, costume design and making, together with props, sound recording and performing. By undertaking much of the production work ourselves, we save on costs, meaning the shows and plays are more cost effective and in turn allow for lower ticket prices much of the time.

We are not receiving any funding and everything is funded by ourselves. With all these amazing achievements purely on our own, one must ask, what can further be achieved with the cooperation and assistance of others in the theatre world?

“We hope our efforts in recent times are acknowledged and that we have demonstrated the skills and passions that we put into our productions and on that basis, it will be possible to build and grow a professional rapport with theatre venues, actors, technical crew, theatre staff and everyone who works in the sector, as we all now move forward and start creating once again.

We look forward to meeting and working with you all in the future.”

Ian & Annie (AMA Theatre Co.)

Annie Albici 

Annie was born in Bucharest, Romania but came to the UK in 1989 as a dancer with the Doina Bucharest Ensemble and the Romanian Radio Television Orchestra under the David Stones organisation. Annie continued her career in dance in the UK and has appeared on TV in such shows as The Generation Game, Blue Peter and has performed on many of the big theatres across the UK including The London Palladium.

Coming from a theatrical family in Bucharest, (her father was conductor of the Bucharest Philharmonic Orchestra, and her mother was a renowned opera singer. Her brother was a theatre artistic director and designer) Annie was fully immersed in the theatrical world from a young age and learned much of her production skills from her experiences in theatres in Bucharest.

Annie’s stage career has been primarily in revue and pantomime playing diverse characters such as Aladdin to Nancy in Oliver and Bob Cratchit in A Christmas Carol. Other acting rolls include Tilly in the adventures of Dromeo and Tilly, Miss Jane Marbles in The Comedy of Terrors and Mistress Quickly in A Covid Night’s Dream. On TV Annie has appeared in Bad Girls and Footballers Wives.
