The Green Tomatoz Headline Bisbee Women’s Revue 2012

The Green Tomatoz are a reminder of fun times on Brewery Gulch when Theater in the Gulch gave us laughs based on the daily goings on around our town. The original Green Tomatoz, Chris Bovée, Judy Perry, and Nancy Weaver, helped form Theater in the Gulch and served as the venue’s house band. If you didn’t get to Bisbee in time to catch these women, you won’t want to miss a chance to see them now.

Bisbee’s Obscure Productions will bring The Green Tomatoz back to the Bisbee stage in this year’s Bisbee Women’s Revue. Judy and Nancy, and possibly a “fresh” tomato, will be featured in this year’s show, which celebrates International Women’s Day, March 8. BOP commemorates the date with a variety show featuring an all-woman cast and crew, though they do invite men to come out and cheer the performers on. The show is different every year and a good time is guaranteed for all.

Veteran Bisbee and BOP performers join the Tomatoz. Carol Park will lead the women of the Occasional Chorus. Sharon Strachan will spoof Stephen Sondheim’s, I’m Not Getting Married Today, with help from her company. BHS drama teacher, Elizabeth Henley, is on for Broadway tunes “to be named later.” Yvonne Grimm will perform with the “Banjolele Ladies,” Debbie Thompson and Debbie Lydon in three-part harmony. Debby Gardner will join Yvonne for Conversation in Heaven. Angelika Johnson and Abigail Stage will dance, and Liz Lockwood provides new comedic commentary. “Obscure” Rae Jones, emcee, will give her own Bisbee Women’s Timeline.

Be the most important part of community theater, yourselves, the audience! The Revue will be presented in three shows at Central School Project’s Squffy Theater, 43 Howell Avenue in Old Bisbee. There will be two evening performances at 7:30 p.m. on March 9 and 10, with a 3:00 pm matinee on March 11. Admission is just $5.00 at the door for this fun community event. For more information regarding the show contact Rae Jones at 520-432-2901, or
