Aerospace Players.jpg

The Aerospace Players


The AEAMCC (Aerospace Employees Association Musical Comedy Club) was formed in 1988, with the intent of providing a forum for Aerospace Corporation and Los Angeles Air Force Base employees, their friends, and their families to participate in the "lively arts." This is not to imply that the productions are purely recreational; the club has always maintained the belief that working hard to produce quality shows will increase the enjoyment of its members. As the Air Force Base and Aerospace have a combined population in excess of 10,000 people, there is quite a bit of theatrical, musical, dance and production talent available.
