A Message from the Admiral


Marooned on Pirate Isle, a haunted pirate adventure is at the Playhouse, 1700 N. Grimes, on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday - Oct. 28, 29, and 30 - from 6 p.m.-10 p.m. Set sail on the "Queen of the Caribbean" for a relaxing luxury cruise. But... beware, ye landlubbers ... I be warnin' ye now, the seas be not safe from th' dreadful curse of pirates!! Arrrr! $5 per person.....

Some have asked me how scary it will be and for what age group. There are scary parts (darkness, weird sounds, yucky parts and enclosed hallways, etc.) Actors will be able to control some of how much scariness is there so let the ticket sellers know your age group but that toning down may be minimal. Use your best judgement but my guess is not for the very young. This is closer to Pirates of Caribbean with haunted, yucky, spooky stuff. Near total darkness at times and lots of fog, creepy lighting, etc.

Besides simply attending this haunted pirate house, we need actors and volunteers to help make the ship sail every night. Please contact Juston Harlin ASAP about what nights you can volunteer and what you are willing to do (love, love, love people being pirates. The more the merrier. We need to fill the adventure with pirates hanging out, etc.)

Contact Juston at 619-549-1188 (text or call) or email him at juston_harlin@hotmail.com. He really needs to hear from you today or Tuesday to confirm your participation. He needs to "cast" certain parts, etc., and can't do this until he knows that ya wanna be a part of the plunderin'.

Yar Playhouse pirate,

Loss of one our own

Hello Playhouse family,

Some of you may already know but long-time Playhouse supporter Larry Hanna passed away this morning.

Larry had served on the Playhouse board in years past as well as served as theater's attorney for many, many years. His quiet and many unseen contributions to the Playhouse will be greatly missed.
In addition he acted in several productions, Playhouse, USW, etc. He was great patron and supporter of the arts in Lea County.

He will be missed.

Your President,

Daniel Russell

All Hands on Deck!

Do you like to build stuff? Paint stuff? Create a story through visual and audio effects? Are you a creative person? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions then we need your help!!

Juston Harlin is putting together a haunted house/maze/adventure at the Playhouse. He has a very neat story line and vision for the event but there is a lot to do and not much time to do it in.

Here is a note from Juston concerning this undertaking (get it? undertaking? undertaker? yeah, yeah, yeah, leave me alone):

Hey Everyone!

I need lots of help this week or we will fall behind! This thing is only a couple of weeks away!!!

Here are the meet times:
Wednesday night at 7pm
Thursday night at 6pm
Friday night at 6pm
Sunday afternoon at 1pm

A lot of the walls are up and the maze is beginning to take shape! Now I need people to begin to take ownership of each of the areas and begin to make them into something special!

Erin Anderson has graciously taken over coordinating props. But I still need someone to take over running and creating the Pirate Store and someone to take over coordinating the costumes! If you own any fun Halloween props or special FX that you think would fit the pirate theme please speak to Erin.

See you there!


If you're interested in helping just stop by the Playhouse during one of the aforementioned times or contact Juston. If you want to know more about the story you'll have to stop by to help because I'm not going to spoil all of the awesomeness here. That's right, awesomeness.

Dates for the haunted house are October 28, 29, and 30 from 6-10pm. We are also going to need a bunch of people to "act" in the haunted house so if you are interested in that please let Juston know as well and we'll assign you to a part. It promises to be a fun adventure for all involved.
