Sins inspire one-acts in Jewel Box Series’ Seven Deadly Shorts

Stephanie Karr and Mark Watts return to the El Paso Community Foundation Jewel Box Series at the Philanthropy Theatre — with something sinfully delicious.

Their Palmore Productions will debut the couple’s new Seven Deadly Shorts at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, March 8 in the Philanthropy Theatre, which is on the second floor of the Plaza Theatre Performing Arts Center Annex, above the box office.

Seven Deadly Shorts is a series of seven one-act plays, all loosely inspired by the seven deadly sins. The plays involve aliens, yoga, fortune telling, Cracker Jack, baggage, chess, and murder.

Some are humorous. Others are darker in tone. All are suitable for audiences of just about any age.

This is the fourth play from the duo, whose Lacy opened the Jewel Box Series inaugural season in 2014. They also wrote and staged Eleven in 2011 and Boots in 2017, both at El Paso Community College.

One of the Seven Deadly Shorts one-acts was performed at Theatre New Mexico’s 2018 spring conference.

The Jewel Box Series continues with Eden Enterprises’ Classic Campesino, two Luis Valdez one-acts, at 2:30 p.m. April 19 (it replaces the previously announced yo Soy project), and is part of the 2020 Nuevo Siglo de Oro Spanish drama festival.

The Jewel Box Series’ sixth season concludes with the Southwest Songwriter Series — featuring Doug Adamz, Teresa Tudury and Gene Keller — at 2:30 p.m. May 10.

The 191-seat Philanthropy Theatre is located above the Plaza Theatre box office on the second floor of the Plaza Theatre Performing Arts Centre annex.

Tickets are $16 at the Plaza Theatre Box Office (no service charges) and Ticketmaster.com (service charges apply).  The Jewel Box Series is produced in partnership with El Paso Live.

Center Against Sexual and Family Violence Unveils Plans to Rebuild Emergency Shelter

Since 1979 the Center Against Sexual and Family Violence (CASFV), then known as El Paso’s Shelter for Battered Women, has provided a safe haven for those affected by violence.

On Friday, September 16 CASFV will open the opportunity for members of the public to make their individual contributions to rebuild their emergency shelter. The unveiling will take place at the El Paso Country Club during the CASFV’s Women’s Luncheon.

“In its current state, the shelter barely meets the needs of our families,” said Stephanie Karr, CASFV executive director.  “We continue to repair what is necessary but it does not make it better. Our families deserve so much more so We need our community’s contribution to make this a reality.”

The agency has raised over $4 million with the help of community partners such as Josh Hunt, Charles deWetter, Judy Robison, Debbie Hamlyn, Beth Hahn, Jack Chapman, Sandra Almanzán and many more.

Originally built as a church in 1950, the shelter has been modified to best serve the needs of the families seen on a daily basis. CASFV has been able to provide not just a shelter for women, children and men but rather a home. In the coming year, the shelter will house more than 900 individuals.

The luncheon will take place at 11:30 a.m. on September 16 at the El Paso Country Club. The event is free and open to the public. CASFV asks that those who wish to attend please RSVP or by calling 915-593-1000 ext. 402.

CASFV Women’s Luncheon:

Date:   Friday, Sept. 16, 2016

Time:    11:30 a.m.

Place:  5000 Country Club Pl, El Paso, TX 79922
