As announced earlier, Atlanta’s Alliance Theatre has invited AAFFM to join a community partnership in connection with the first production in its 2021-22 Coca-Cola Stage season.  Darlin’ Cory, by Atlanta playwright Philip DePoy, is a new country-folk musical about a young woman’s journey of self-discovery and family reckoning in a small Appalachian mountain town in the 1920s. The partnership will offer current AAFFM members complimentary (free) tickets to a special community performance Tuesday, September 14, 7:30 pm (subject to space availability).  And this update: Anyone on our mailing list, member or not, can now receive a 25% discount on tickets for other performances of the show. 

The offer of free admission Sept. 14 is limited to current AAFFM members, so you will need to become a member or renew your membership if it has lapsed. Once you’ve done that and let us know you want to attend that evening, we’ll put you on the Alliiance’s AAFFM list.

We haven’t been sending renewal notices during the pandemic; if you’re unsure of your status, please contact Mark Reeve, our membership director, at  Your AAFFM membership dues provide important ongoing support to our organization.  Even though our monthly Fiddler’s Green concerts are still on pandemic hiatus, AAFFM must still pay music licensing fees to BMI and ASCAP for the series.  Your dues also support scholarships for talented young people with financial need to take music classes at the Frank Hamilton School. 

To become an AAFFM member or to renew, go to and click on “Click Here to Support AAFFM.”  You’ll find the membership form and instructions for where to send the form and your check. (Note: For renewals the form is required only if there’s new information such as a membership level change, new email address, or change in volunteer interest.) 

You don’t have to be a current AAFFM member to receive a 25% discount for tickets to other performances of this show. 
Just go to and enter the promo code SONG25 at the top right of the screen prior to checkout.
