Tickets are on sale for "Butterflies Are Free"!

Tickets are now on sale for the romantic comedy "Butterflies Are Free"!

Loosely based on the life of attorney Harold Krents, the plot revolves around a Manhattan blind man whose controlling mother disapproves of his relationship with a free-spirited hippie. The title was inspired by a passage in Charles Dickens' "Bleak House": "I only ask to be free. The butterflies are free. Mankind will surely not deny to Harold Skimpole what it concedes to the butterflies."

"Butterflies Are Free" is directed by Jonathan Bertschinger ("Line", "The Importance of Being Earnest"), and features Nicholas Pankratz, Denise Rusk, Debi Feltman, and Scott Hill.

Show dates are September 5th, 6th, 11th, 12th, and 13th (8 PM) and September 7th (2 PM).  All seats are $10, and can be purchased online (click the ticket link on the left side of our website).

Audition notice "Butterflies are Free"

The Community Players of Hobbs would like to invite local area talent to audition for their upcoming production of "Butterflies Are Free".  Casting is for two men and two women.  The auditions are set for the 21st and 22nd of July and will begin at 7 PM.

The play centers around a young blind musician who moves to New York pursue his career and falls in love with the girl next door. The play also includes his overprotective mother, played by Eileen Heckart in the 1972 film version, who won an Academy Award for her interpretation of the role. There is also a second male role of Ralf Austin, a local Off-Broadway director.

Male auditioners are encouraged, not required, to display their musical talent with guitar or other.

Also included are the monologues that will be used for the audition. Memorization is not required, but it would not hurt potential actors to familiarize themselves with the material before the audition.

Monologues can be found by clicking here.

Additionally, any local area artists are also encouraged to stop by as the show will feature an art gallery.
