The joint is jumpin’ as BOP swings into our lucky 13th Season! The brilliantly acted comedy, Sylvia, opened to a full house last Friday evening and will continue at 7:30 pm September 25, 26 and at 3:00 pm on the 27th. Look for tickets at Finder’s Keeper’s, Mimosa Market and Bisbee Food Coop.
Nearest and dearest to my heart at the moment is the upcoming auditions for Tennessee Williams', The Glass Menagerie, coming up on the heels of our Sylvia run. The auditions will be on October 3 & 4, 3:00 pm at CSP. I’ll be directing this much beloved classic drama and am looking for some fresh young talent to bring this story to life. Mother, Amanda, is 40ish plus, but Tom, Jim and Laura, the younger folk, must be able to play 20 up into early 30’s. Young women have talked to me, but I’m still seeking some eager young men. No experience necessary. I will train you up! The script is at the CQ library and you can call me with questions at 520-432-2901, if you’d like to know what you’re getting into. . . Hint: (Something magical!)
Open Mike on Steroids? I’m not sure BOP’s new and upcoming variety talent night, Open Stage, will be quite ready to pump up with the big leagues when we take the Squffy stage on October 16 at 7:00 pm. (though I do love the way dear Britt pumped it up in his curtain speech) We will have snacks and drinks for donation, a stage and mikes, and at least a few fun and interesting acts to get us started. No sword swallowers or plate spinners yet, though, so come on out! Bring a buck and maybe an act and come on up to the 3rd floor. Let’s have some fun and see what develops.
See you soon at the Squffy!
