The Best Christmas Pageant Ever

The Best Christmas Pageant EverThe Herdmans are six scrawny children ( Ralph, Imogene, Leroy, Claude, Ollie and Gladys) who are notorious delinquents in their community. Among other things, they lie, steal, smoke cigars (even the girls!), and hit little kids. The kids basically raise themselves. Their father walked out when the youngest was two years old, and their mother works double shifts at the shoe factory.

The story is narrated by Beth Bradley, a girl in Imogene Herdman's class. Beth's brother, Charlie, unwisely lies to Leroy Herdman, saying that he doesn't mind Leroy stealing his dessert at school because Charlie gets all the snacks he wants at Sunday School. This leads to all six Herdmans showing up at church the next Sunday for the first time in their lives.

Beth's mother is put in charge of the Christmas pageant when the original leader, Mrs. Helen Armstrong, fells and breaks her leg. The announcement for the auditions happens to be on the day the Herdmans show up at church, and, avid movie fans that they are, the Herdman's volunteer (and threaten) their way into all six of the main parts.

In spite of the Herdmans never having heard the Christmas story before (and wanting to change the script so they can hunt down the evil King Herod) and in spite of never making it through a complete rehearsal, the show does go on and turns out to be, as everyone says, the best Christmas pageant they have ever seen. Nobody can put a finger on the precise reason, but it has to do with the fact that the Herdmans just act like real people, probably like the characters in the Bible story really were, rather than the radiant, haloed saints that are usually portrayed.
Dec. 5-21, 2014; $15-$20

And the 2014 Winner of the Caribbean Cruise is...

Hairspray broke The Wizard of Oz attendance record on the final performance weekend. But that's not what you want to know. What you really want to know is...who won the raffle?

The prize for two lucky folks went to Daniel Guthrie of Conroe, TX. Daniel and whomever he selects will be taking a sedan car thanks to Gulf Coast Limo to Galveston where he will go on an 8 day/7 night cruise to Cozumel, Jamaica, and the Cayman Islands at the end of October. Congratulations to Daniel. Lucky guy. Wish I were going...

If Daniel were at the last performance to claim his prize - which was not a requirement - he could have stayed and had BBQ thanks to Darrel's Catering along with the cast and crew of Hairspray. The brisket and sausage were awesome as usual. We had so many desserts that we will have a hard time getting to sleep. Not a bad way to enjoy a great time with the cast and crew of Hairspray. Until next time...

Last Weekend to see Hairspray!

If you haven't seen Hairspray yet, then you need to join the 3300+ that have seen it or will see it! Over 85 minutes of fast paced, 60's style music, singing, and dancing! For a glimpse of the action during the show, check out our production photos or the commemorative poster from Hairspray! Thanks to Dave Clements of DWC Photography for the wonderful memories of the show!

If you prefer the magazine articles, see the June and July Dockline articles. Don't forget we will be doing the drawing for the cruise on Sunday - the last performance of Hairspray. Get your raffle tickets during the show before the drawing.

Get your tickets before it's too late!

Red, Hot, and Blue Parade

The cast and crew of Hairspray marched, danced, and sang their way around the Market Street area in the Woodlands, TX. If an award was given for the greenest entry (i.e. least carbon footprint) they would have won as the vintage car they used had to be pushed all the way around the parade route. That did not deter or detract from the energy that the cast had while dancing, singing, and giving out rack cards to push the show. The parade was simulcast on Sunny 99.1 and the Woodlands Online website. See this video clip on the Hairspray cast. You can also read more about the show in the Dockline magazine.

After the show those that still had energy went to Red Robin for lunch. See pictures from the parade here.

Hairspray open this Friday on the 11th of July. Get your tickets today!

Hairspray Character Descriptions

Tracy Turnblad ‐ A pleasantly plump teenager with a big heart who has dreams of being a dancing star … as
soon as she's out of detention for her big hair. Tracy isn’t afraid to be herself and stand up for what she believes in.
She must be friendly, relentless, and goodhearted with a vibrant, lovable personality and love to sing and dance.
Tracy is on stage for a LOT of the show so she must have stamina and talent – she performs in 10+ numbers
including “Good Morning Baltimore,” “I Can Hear The Bells,” and many more! It is truly a BIG role! Mezzo‐Belt
Stage Age: 16‐19

Edna Turnblad ‐ Tracy’s kind, plus‐sized mother; runs a laundry business out of her home but hasn't been out in a
while. Played by Harvey Fierstein on Broadway, and John Travolta in the movie, this drag role requires a strong
comic male performer who is ready for his inner woman to take the spotlight Edna is not a man pretending to be a
woman, she is all woman! Just, you know, with a distinctive voice. Performs in 5+ numbers including “You're
Timeless To Me.” Tenor. Stage Age: 40+. Note that the role has been precast.

Opening Weekend for Anything Goes

Over 600 patrons came to the opening weekend of Anything Goes. Critics claimed they had never seen that much dancing on the Crighton stage in 30+ years. Food, flowers, comedy, fantastic singing, tap dancing, and a chance to win a cruise! There is no better way to spend an evening. To see some of the production pictures click here.
