Our Story

Wait A Minute Who Are You?

My name is Stefanie and I am the Co-founder and CEO of Don't Tell Amy Productions. My friend Julia and I became very close thanks to a certain YouTube Channel and were lamenting its inevitable demise in conjunction with our cut short senior semester of college in 2020. With graduation looming and the clock ticking we sat in my living room, glass of wine in hand and said to each other - I miss making stuff. So we figured why not start a production company and make stuff? 

Want to help us make that stuff?

In these unprecedented times we welcome any and all contributions made to DTA. There are many ways of contributing to our growing company, and the links can be found below.

Why This - Why Now

When the world went wonky I found myself feeling bewildered as my peers and I wondered aloud “Where did our time go?” How much of the past can we afford to live in before it affects our future? In this 2022 season we aim to explore these themes with us as we continue our goal of always aiming further beyond!

Clairvoyant Cabaret

Join us in exploring the theme of Time and Memory at the collection of entertaining performances served fresh to you alongside a delicious meal. So, get dressed in your Sunday best and get ready for a feast - for the eyes, ears (and stomachs!) of all.

Lizzie Borden - Life After Death

The play begins in June 1905, thirteen years since the bloody murder of Andrew and Abby Borden. When a familiar face turns up at Maplecroft, Lizbeth finds herself forced to relive the events of 1892 and decide what secrets are worth keeping. 


Jonathan Harker, a young lawyer’s Clark, is sent to a remote castle in Transylvania to complete
the purchase of a house in England for one Count Dracula. As time goes on, Jonathan begins to
notice strange things; countless locked doors, laughter that appears from nowhere, and
strangest of all, The Count himself. Jonathan soon finds himself in a race against the setting
sun, as the count prepares to turn all of England into his army of the undead.

The Kitchen

Spanning nearly fifty years, The Kitchen is a play based on real people who lived lives that were both simple and extraordinary. It follows the story of Catarina Buccolo, an immigrant from Italy, as she struggles to find her place in the world and in her family. There are struggles, some bigger than others, but there are also joys greater than all. The Kitchen is a story of not having a choice but growing and flourishing despite what life has handed you.

This Is...

A short film that explores the trauma and healing it asks what happens when you try to move on from unfinished business, what happens when you can't find your way out of the woods?



DTA is committed to an all-inclusive casting process as well as fostering a space that amplifies the voices of those in historically marginalized groups and historically stigmatized personal identities.  We purposefully and intently encourage creators of all ethnicities, races, gender identities, ages, body types and abilities to submit for any of our projects and divisions in order to create art that best reflects the world in which we live. 


COVID safety precautions will be in full effect during filming and rehearsal processes.


In the spirit of transparency Don't Tell Amy Productions would like to notify you of our payment system. All projects at this time operate on an ad-hoc payment basis in reference to ticket sales (unless otherwise stated). Therefore, while these roles are technically unpaid, we always pay our performers and technicians before we pay ourselves should the ability to do so rises. If you would like more information on this process or have any questions, please email us.

Each piece has its own audition requirements in addition to our standard actor submission forms - so please read each breakdown carefully and follow the directors' required criteria. For video submissions please film in a landscape orientation in a space with enough light for us to see your face. We also recommend playing back your audio to make sure the quality is that of which you'd like us to hear. In person auditions are in most cases also available to those local to the Long Island and Manhattan areas.
