Season 16-17 Presentations
Open Stage: We Want You!!!
On Friday, September 2, Bisbee’s Obscure Productions will kick off their Fabulous Fourteenth Season with the second year of Open Stage Night. Curtain time is 7:00 p.m. at Central School Project’s Squffy Theater. These evenings of talent, pathos, laughter, music, dancing, and surprises proved to be a big hit when introduced last season, and BOP and local talent aficionados look forward to even more fun this year.
Everyone is encouraged to bring their own particular talent to the Squffy stage to enjoy ten minutes of fame with wonderful Bisbee audiences. In order to pay the evening’s rent, BOP charges patron and player alike a fee of $2.00. If true patrons are feeling flush, they may sponsor a performer or two. Snacks and drinks are for sale to spice up the evening.
Performers must sign up before show time and are encouraged to contact “Obscure” Rae
Come on any or all of these selected Friday evenings at our early 7:00 pm start time.

The Fisherman's Clever Daughter
Book by Jeremey Caron
Lyrics by Samuel R. Caron, Ph.D.
Music by Benjamin J. Caron
An operetta based on Vít Horejš’ new translation of an ancient Czech folktale.
“A long time ago there was a far away village, in a far away kingdom, in a land far, far away. The villagers lived hard, simple lives, yet they were very happy and were ruled by a wise king...” However. The king challenges the citizens to answer a riddle: “What are the sweetest, strongest, and most valuable things in the kingdom?” What’s the answer, who can answer it, and what unfolds?

Murder, Margaret and Me
“The only real truth in what you are about to see is that Miss Margaret Rutherford didn’t want anyone to know the truth.” Agatha Christie, Margaret Rutherford, and The Spinster meet for tea, sympathy and some challenging questions.
Should Margaret the comedian play Marple the detective? Why did Agatha disappear? What tragedy lurks behind these famous faces?

Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap is the longest running play in the United Kingdom with great dialogue, challenging plot and intriguing characters.
Giles and Mollie Ralston are opening their remote guest house. Four distinctly odd guests arrive just before a snowstorm closes the roads and just after a woman is strangled on the streets of London. Will Detective Trotter be able to deduce whodunnit before more are killed? It is considered very bad form to tell anyone who the villain is.
