Auditions "A Doll's House"

Auditions for the 2013 production of Henrik Ibsen's "A Doll's House" will be held on Friday, November 30th and Saturday, December 1st at 7 PM at the Playhouse.  The auditions will consist of cold readings from the script.  First rehearsal (cast orientation and first read) will be on Sunday, December 2nd. "A Doll's House" will be directed by Nathan R. Miles.

"A Doll's House" is our entry into the 2013 AACTFest competition.  You can find out more about AACTFest by clicking here.

AACTFest competition takes places in three stages; state, regional, and national.  Theatre companies compete on the state level, and winning companies advance to the regional level, with regional winners advancing to the national level.  The same cast must perform at all levels (if the company advances).

The dates for the AACTFest competition are:

March 20-24 in Los Alamos, NM (State)
April 17-20, 2013, in Lafayette, LA (Regional)
June 17-23, 2013, in Carmel, IN (National)
AACTFest is a very challenging competition, but is also a very rewarding experience.  Come audition so we can show the New Mexico theatre community (and hopefully the national theatre community) what theatre in Hobbs is all about!

It's hard to believe that November is already well underway!  This has been a very productive year so far, yet, still so much is coming.  So let's not forget that our next production, "Line" by Israel Horowitz, directed by Jonathan Bertschinger, will open Thursday, November 15 at 8:00 PM, with other performances on Friday, and Saturday also at 8 PM and Sunday, November 18th at 2:00 PM.  The best part is that this production is TOTALLY FREE as a thank you for supporting our playhouse for 75 years!  It's first come, first served.  So, to get the seating you want, be early. Hope you can join us for this hilarious comedy.
 
Auditions for "A Doll's House" (our 2013 AACTFest entry) directed by Nathan R.

"The Wait" ("Line" opens November 15th!)



What is Fleming waiting for?  A ballgame?  A movie?

Who knows...but you can find out just what "Line" is all about on Thursday, November 15th at 8 PM.

"Line" is a hilarious and absurd comedy written by Israel Horovitz, directed by Jonathan Bertschinger.  Starring Tim Deines ("Fleming"), Nathan Miles ("Stephen"), Karen Widman ("Molly"), Robert Schumacher ("Dolan"), and David Baeza ("Arnall"), "Line" is the story of five people waiting in line, and the lengths they will go to in order to be first in line.  Scheming, backstabbing, manipulating...and plain old shoving and fighting!

"Line" is free...yes, free!  This is to thank our patrons for a great 75th Anniversary Season!

Come see "Line" November 15-17 at 8 PM and November 18th at 2 PM.  ("Line" is intended for mature audiences, parental discretion is advised.)
