& Elsie in Below the Surface by Pearl Watkins

in Trifles by Susan Glaspell
We were quite pleased by the attendance at the Fine One-Acts, considering the fine competition -- Bisbee Community Chorus, the Love of Music, Mining Museum Fundraiser, etc. Our audiences were quite pleased by the quality of the two shows: Trifles by Susan Glaspell, and Below the Surface by Bisbee's own Pearl Watkins. Patrons praised the acting, the sets and the direction. We're quite chuffed, as Pearl would say. Thanks to our great volunteer actors and staff. Thank you all who came. And, if you didn't get to see these plays, please mark your calendars for the rest of our season.

Ask your friends, BOP puts on a good show!
Friday, July 29, 2011
Young actors have been working for weeks to create and produce a show they describe as "awesome." Bisbee's Obscure Productions began in June, asking their young performers to come up with ideas for their very own play. With help from director Rae Jones and assistant directors Christa Smith and Staci Smith, the actors brainstormed an adventurous trip around the galaxy. Molly Hottel tied their ideas into Journey through the Planets. Molly likes being in the play because she loved the writing process and because everyone contributed ideas. She thinks people should see "Journey" for its suspense, magic and drama.
For some of the actors, this workshop has been a family endeavor. Molly's sister Abby Hottel has appeared twice with BOP before, once in a kid's show and once in Inherit the Wind. Abby thinks the play is "great," and she enjoys the challenge of acting sick on stage. Zarria Starr Dennis has enjoyed working with different people and is looking forward to an audience. "It would be so great for us." Starr's twin Isabella Dennis likes how "you can make your own ideas and mix them."
Linda Herrera wants audience members to come to support "kids getting together and just having fun. It's going to be a great show." The youngest young actor, Hadleigh McLeod, says "I love acting," and "this play is really imaginative." Jasmine Apel finds that "acting is awesome," even though her mother made her join the troupe. "We have all worked so hard," she continues, "and it's awesome!
The whole community is invited to support this production. Tickets are free for kids 12 and under, $5 for everyone else. Journey Through the Planets will have two performances on August 5 & 6 at the “O. G. Squffy” Theater at Central School Project, 43 Howell Avenue in Old Bisbee. Performances for both evenings are scheduled for 7:00 p.m.
BOP's Youth Theater Workshop was made available free of charge to participants thanks to generous help from the Bisbee Arts Commission, the Bisbee Foundation, Central School Project and the Bisbee Rotary Club. Come out to support these budding stars and enjoy an evening of live theater. For more information contact Rae Jones, firstname.lastname@example.org, or

Community Support that Really Counts!
A $500.00 challenge from
Warm Hands Therapeutics
Why did you move to Bisbee?
If you’re like many of us, it was for a multitude of good reasons, a key reason being Community.
Here in Bisbee, you have a chance to get to know each other, support each other, and, in turn, be supported when you need it.
Of the many things that bind Bisbee’s communities together one of the most visible, enduring, & entertaining is the yearly season of theater produced by Bisbee’s Obscure Productions.
If you had the chance to catch any of the sold-out performances of Inherit the Wind you felt what good theater can do for you and this community.
As part of their commitment to improving themselves with each production, it has become clear to Bisbee’s Obscure Productions that the time has come to install a reliable, versatile, up-to-date lighting & lighting control system.
To support that effort Warm Hands Therapeutics is issuing a $500.00 Matching Funds Challenge to the theater-goers and businesses of Bisbee.
All it takes for Bisbee’s Obscure Productions to get my $500.00 is for all of you to make donations that match or exceed that amount. The funds need to be received by mid-April, but we hope that the challenge will be successfully met by the end of March so that the installation work can precede as quickly as possible.
Donations can be made directly to Bisbee’s Obscure Productions in the form of checks or money orders sent to P.O. Box 277, Bisbee, AZ 85603, or you can drop them off at the Chamber of Commerce office on Main St. between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm, Monday through Friday. Please make sure that your donation is clearly marked “matching fund challenge” so that it gets correctly tallied.
I’m very excited about this chance to move things up to the next level for each of you, I hope your excitement will encourage you to join me in supporting the growth of our own Community’s Theater!
Thank-you for your support.

Bisbee’s Obscure Productions Casting for 2011 Women’s Revue
Bisbee’s finest community theater, BOP, is putting out the call to Bisbee area women interested in sharing their performing talents in music, acting, poetry, dance, videography, comedy, and whatever we haven’t thought of. Three performances are scheduled for evenings, March 11 and 12, and the afternoon of March 13. Performers must also be available for a dress rehearsal evening of March 10. Performers and acts that Obscure Rae has not seen must contact her to schedule an audition. Performers will rehearse on their own. Rae can be reached at email@example.com or at 432-2901.
Last year’s return of this, once again annual, Bisbee treasure drew from performer’s original works and featured wonderful musical ensembles, as well as educational moments and lots of laughs. Pat Panther was joined by her daughter-in-law Danielle to sing the blues, and Risha Druckman joined her mother, Jenny, and others in an eclectic mix of original music, to add a nice family element we are pleased to promote.
