Maid to Order Auditions!

Audition Notice, October 20th at 2pm and October 21st and 7pm.
Located at the Center for the Arts, 122 W. Broadway St. Hobbs, NM.


Here’s a farce at its funny and frenetic best!  A wealthy widow, Marcy Malliger, is expecting her beau for dinner, which means she expects nothing less than perfection from her household staff.  Her disgusting son Gerald, who is 25 years old but still lives with his “mommy,” is attempting to put the moves on the maids, as usual.  Sarah, a recently hired maid, does her best to ignore his overtures so as not to lose her job.  That’s when her brother James shows up, looking for a place to hide.  He’s on the run from a loan shark who wants his money back, and certainly the mobster wouldn’t think to look for him at a mansion.  But wouldn’t you know, Ms. Malliger’s beau who comes for dinner is the loan shark?!  Bring in the cops, who think James is Gerald (and vice versa!), and the loan shark’s dim-witted daughter, who instantly falls head-over-heels for Gerald, and you’ve got all the ingredients for fantastic farce in just one hour!  Mistaken identities galore, a fast paced plot that picks up more speed as it goes and an extended chase scene involving well...  just about everyone, will instantly make this fresh farce a favorite for cast, crew and audience alike! 

Performances will be December 12-15 and directed by Lucero Acosta.

AUDITION NOTICE The Addams Family


Auditions July 8 & 9, 2019 
Community Players of Hobbs
Starting at 6:00 pm

THE ADDAMS FAMILY, a comical feast that embraces the wackiness in every family, features an original story and it’s every father’s nightmare: Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family– a man her parents have never met. And if that wasn’t upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before– keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents.

Directed by Christopher Eubank, and performances will be September 6-8, 13-15, 2019

Tickets now on sale for "Sister Act The Musical"

Tickets are now on sale for the hilarious upcoming musical: Sister Act!

Sister Act is the feel-good musical comedy smash based on the hit 1992 film that has audiences jumping to their feet! Featuring original music by Tony- and eight-time Oscar winner, Alan Menken (Newsies, Beauty and the Beast, Little Shop of Horrors), this uplifting musical was nominated for five Tony Awards, including Best Musical.

When disco diva, Deloris Van Cartier, witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in the one place the cops are sure she won't be a found: a convent! Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle and uptight Mother Superior. Using her unique disco moves and singing talent to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church and community but, in doing so, blows her cover. Soon, the gang is giving chase, only to find them up against Deloris and the power of her newly found sisterhood.

Sister Act is directed by Douglas Levy.

Show dates are May 31, June 1-2 and 7-9. Tickets are all $15.00. You can purchase them at the door, or online here:

Tickets are on sale for "Barefoot in the Park"

Tickets are now on sale for the Neil Simon comedy "Barefoot in the Park"!

Paul and Corie Bratter are newlyweds in every sense of the word. He’s a straight-as-an-arrow lawyer and she’s a free spirit always looking for the latest kick. Their new apartment is her most recent find – too expensive with bad plumbing and in need of a paint job. After a six-day honeymoon, they get a surprise visit from Corie’s loopy mother and decide to play matchmaker during a dinner with their neighbor-in-the-attic, Velasco, where everything that can go wrong, does. Paul just doesn’t understand Corie, as she sees it. He’s too staid, too boring, and she just wants him to be a little more spontaneous. Running “barefoot in the park” would be a start…

"Barefoot in the Park" is directed by Laura Brewster, and stars Miles Wiseman, Destiny Windham, Sarah Hester, Ken Harkness, Marcus Sparenberg, and Eric Taylor.

Performance dates are April 5, 6, 12, and 13 (8 PM) and April 14 (2 PM).  All tickets $10.  Click here to purchase tickets.
