The Playhouse says "farewell" - Briana Schneider

Briana Schneider will be departing Hobbs this fall, joining the Sooners of the University of Oklahoma. Briana has been involved with the Community Players of Hobbs for over 12 years...yes, 12 years, meaning her stage debut at the Playhouse was at the young age of 6!

Her first role was Sarah Cratchett in the classic Christmas show "A Christmas Carol". Prior to that, she'd taken the stage as Puck in a 5th grade production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream". She made her musical debut in junior high, returning to the playhouse for "Bah Humbug", followed by roles in "Monsters in the Closet", "Grease", "A Company of Wayward Saints", "Annie", "Christmas at Home", "Seussical", and in her final Playhouse performance in "Willy Wonka".

Briana has also taken the stage at Hobbs High School, appearing in "Soap Opera", "Bye Bye Birdie", and "The Weather Show" while in elementary school, as well as appearances at New Mexico Junior College in "Beyond Therapy", "The Lion in Winter", and "Murder Room".

In addition to her numerous acting roles, Briana has filled numerious crew roles in shows both at the Playhouse and Hobbs High. She assisted as a member of the deck crew for "I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change". She was the Stage Manager for "Rabbit Hole" and "All My Sons" at the Playhouse, "Guys and Dolls" at Hobbs High, and "The Zoo Story" at the 2011 AACTFest in Artesia, NM, helping the Playhouse entry take Alternate.

An accomplished vocalist, Briana won numerious honors for her participation in Choir at Hobbs High, and was a member of "Accidental Harmony", a local music group with several other Playhouse "regulars".

Please join us in wishing Briana a fond farewell. We'll miss you, Briana!
