About the Community Players of Hobbs

Our Mission & Our Vision

For over 80 years, the Community Players of Hobbs has been making theater-goers of North Grimes and Hobbs laugh, cry, marvel, and remember the classics through our performances at the Playhouse. All of our actors and performers aim to honor and preserve the art of theater and serve this community we’ve been so thankful to be a part of for over eight decades.

Education & Outreach

With the goal of fostering a sense of love for theater early on in life and investing in the next generation of performers and artists in our community, the Playhouse is dedicated to education through our Youth Performing Arts Workshops. For 12 straight years we have offered students aged 9-18 the chance to receive instruction in all areas of play production from set design to singing to character development and more.

From the President

Creative House of Performance

“My first contact with the Community Players of Hobbs was through the haunted house in 2016.  My family and I have always enjoyed Halloween and this was the perfect introduction to the Hobbs group.  Since then I’ve helped behind the scenes many times.  Whether you enjoy scaring, plays or musicals, whether you’re a veteran actor or a newbie, whether you’re an in the s

potlight personality or a quieter sort, this will always be the place for you to shoot for the stars in Lea County.”
