Hello Everyone!

My father and I are proud to annouce the members of the cast of I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change! First, we want to tell everyone that they did a wonderful job both singing and acting at the auditions. We couldn't have asked for a better turn out in talent. We also want to say that ILYYPNC is a small show and we could only cast six people, but our next musical will definitly have a much larger cast and we hope you all come out and audition again for us!

ILYYPNC Cast List:

Jay Patton
Ronnie Gray
Josh Berner
Erin Anderson
Sandy Goad
Summer Robinson

Thanks again to everyone. Please, come audition for the Hobbs Community Playhouse again in the future!

Juston & Larry Harlin

CORPORATE SPONSORS: Our annual fundraising campaign went well. Check out the new Playbill at the next show to see who are returning corporate sponsors and see a few new one's. One example, Higginbotham-Bartlett has joined us as a corporate sponsor so please try to shop their for you Playhouse production supplies. Thanks to all our corporate sponsors and those who purchased ads in the program. Without this financial support, community theater could not exist and function. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

BACK LOT: Have you noticed the back lot of the Playhouse recently? It looks really, really different. Take a look when you get to chance. Next, we need to work on getting it covered so it useful for parking, etc? Anyone have any ideas? Let myself or Tony Bostick know!

Your president,

Daniel Russell

A casting update for "The Curious Savage"

A change to the cast for "The Curious Savage"...due to unfortunate and unforseen circumstances, Duston Dick ("Jeff") and his wife Crystal (Technical Director/understudy for "Fairy May") had to leave us. We are indeed sad to see them go, and wish them the best of luck in their new home.

Fortunately, Juston Harlin has graciously agreed to fill the role of "Jeff", and will be juggling the final rehearsals and performances of "The Curious Savage" with auditions for "I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change", which he is directing.

Thank you, Juston, for stepping up to the plate, and a fond farewell to Dustin and Crystal...we'll miss you!
