Bisbee’s Obscure Productions Seeks Women Artists & Performers

Community Theater Company Bisbee’s Obscure Productions is seeking women artists in all media, visual and performance, for the Annual Bisbee Women’s Revue. This year, the popular all female variety show will bring back an open show of visual art by local women. This celebration of women’s creativity is held in honor of International Women’s Day, March 8, and both performance and art show will open on the evening of March 8, preceded by a gala reception to feast the day and the event.

Interested performers must be available evenings March 7, 8, 9 and for matinee, March 10. An audition is required if BOP doesn’t know your work. BOP is asking performers to contribute finger food for the reception. Contact Rae Jones for information or to sign up at 520-432-2901 or Friends of BOP and of Women (either gender) can also contact Rae to sign up to help with food and with service or set-up and clean-up.

Visual artists must be able to drop off hanging ready work at Central School Project on March 6 and to pick work up March 24 or 25. Artists are asked to sign up to help with hanging and strike, to sit the gallery, or to provide food. No commission or hanging fee will be charged. Contact Maralyce Ferree for information and registration at 520-432-3320 (gallery), 207-450-0679 (cell) or Helpers who can help hang and strike, also contact Maralyce.

Bisbee’s Obscure Productions Auditions for “Bisbee’s Obscure Alice”

Bisbee’s Obscure Productions will have open auditions for their own “Alice in Wonderland” on February 16 and 17. This is a chance for actors young to old to play some great characters and have great fun entertaining friends, relatives and warm, friendly perfect strangers.

C. Gilles-Brown is adapting the original Lewis Carroll, and together the company will give this show a distinctive BOP feel. Gilles adapted and directed the outdoor BOP show “Aladdin” and “A Christmas Carol” for the original Bisbee Rep. She last appeared onstage in “I Hate Hamlet” and most recently directed Agatha Christie’s “And then there were none…”

Auditions will be held in the O.J. Squffy Theater at Central School Project, 43 Howell Ave. in Old Bisbee on Saturday and Sunday, February 16 and 17, beginning at 2:00 pm each day.

Actors ages 8 and up are asked to come prepared to deliver a one- to three-minute memorized piece, not original work. This piece could be a rhyme or poem, story or theater monologue. Come prepared to move. Children under the age of 8 will be considered if they have theater or dance training. Rehearsals will be Thursday evenings and weekend afternoons until performance. Dress rehearsal and performance dates are April 15 – May 9, 2013. The book for “Alice in Wonderland” is available many places online. Actors may contact BOP at (520) 432-2901 or for more information.
