Tickets are now on sale for "Shrek: The Musical, Jr."

Our 2015 Summer Youth Performing Arts Workshop production is "Shrek: The Musical, Jr."!

Set in a mythical “once upon a time” sort of land, Shrek the Musical is the story of a hulking green ogre who, after being mocked and feared his entire life by anything that crosses his path, retreats to an ugly green swamp to exist in happy isolation. Suddenly, a gang of homeless fairy-tale characters (Pinocchio, Cinderella, the Three Pigs, you name it) raid his sanctuary, saying they’ve been evicted by the vertically challenged Lord Farquaad. So Shrek strikes a deal: I’ll get your homes back, if you give me my home back!

But when Shrek and Farquaad meet, the Lord strikes a deal of his own: He’ll give the fairy-tale characters their homes back, if Shrek rescues Princess Fiona.

Shrek obliges, yet finds something appealing–something strange and different–about this pretty princess. He likes her. A lot. But why does she always run off when the sun sets?

Tickets are $10 and can be purchased online (http://www.communityplayersofhobbs.com) or at the door.

Tickets now on sale for "Avenue Q"!

Tickets are now on sale for "Avenue Q"!

Please note "Avenue Q" is intended for mature audiences.

Come see this hilarious musical, with all it's puppet craziness!

“Avenue Q” is an American musical by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx (music and lyrics), with the book by Jeff Whitty.

''Avenue Q'' is an "autobiographical and biographical" coming-of-age parable, addressing and satirizing the issues and anxieties associated with entering adulthood. Its characters lament that as children, they were assured by their parents (and by children's television programs, such as PBS’s “Sesame Street”) that they were "special" and "could do anything"; but as adults, they have discovered to their surprise and dismay that in the real world their options are limited, and they are no more "special" than anyone else.

“Avenue Q” is notable for the use of puppets, animated by unconcealed puppeteers, alongside human actors.

The Playhouse production is directed by Juston Harlin (“Jekyll & Hyde”, “Urinetown”, “I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change”, “Beauty and the Beast”).

Show dates are June 4, 5, 6, 11, 12, 13 (8 PM) and June 7 and 14 (2 PM).  Tickets are $15 and may be purchased in advance by visiting our website and clicking the box office ticket icon on the left.

"Endgame" opens Thursday!

"Endgame" opens Thursday, April 9, at the Hobbs Playhouse 1700 N. Grimes. This drama, written by Samuel Beckett and directed by Michelle Fox, gives a comically absurd look into the search for meaning in life. It is about four people who are trapped...trapped in a room and trapped in life. They are all waiting for an end to come, but no one can make it happen.

The show runs one weekend only, April 9, 10, 11 at 8:00 pm, and April 12 at 2:00 pm.

Tickets are $10, available online or at the door.


Hope to see you there!
