Christmas Bellesby Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, and Jamie Wooten
Audition Dates (tentative): Oct. 11-12, 2015. Some roles have been precast
Performance Dates: Dec. 4-20, 2015

If you missed this in 2010, don't miss this hilarious Christmas celebration described as "The Golden Girls" meet "A Charlie Brown Christmas"!

It’s Christmas-time in the small town of Fayro, Texas, and the Futrelle Sisters — Frankie, Twink and Honey Raye — are not exactly in a festive mood. A cranky Frankie is weeks overdue with her second set of twins. Twink, recently jilted and bitter about it, is in jail for inadvertently burning down half the town. And hot-flash-suffering Honey Raye is desperately trying to keep the Tabernacle of the Lamb’s Christmas Program from spiraling into chaos. But things are not looking too promising: Miss Geneva, the ousted director of the previous twenty-seven productions, is ruthless in her attempts to take over the show.

The celebrity guest Santa Claus — played by Frankie’s long-suffering husband, Dub — is passing a kidney stone. One of the shepherds refuses to watch over his flock by night without pulling his little red wagon behind him. And the entire cast is dropping like flies due to food poisoning from the Band Boosters’ Pancake Supper. And when Frankie lets slip a family secret that has been carefully guarded for decades, all hope for a successful Christmas program seems lost, even with an Elvis impersonator at the manger. But in true Futrelle fashion, the feuding sisters find a way to pull together in order to present a Christmas program the citizens of Fayro will never forget. Their hilarious holiday journey through a misadventure-filled Christmas Eve is guaranteed to bring joy to your world!
Dec 4-20, 2015; $15-$20

STAGE RIGHT Announces Date Change: Auditions for The Producers Dec. 6 & 7

STAGE RIGHT of Texas, resident theatre company at the historic Crighton Theatre, announces auditions for the musical The Producers Dec. 6 & 7 at 7 pm. The dates have been changed from when originally announced. The show is directed by Manny Cafeo.

Plot Summary:

A down-on-his-luck Broadway producer and his mild-mannered accountant come up with a scheme to produce the most notorious flop in history thereby bilking their backers (all "little old ladies") out of millions of dollars. Only one thing goes awry: the show is a smash hit! The antics of Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom as they maneuver their way fecklessly through finding a show (the gloriously offensive "Springtime For Hitler"), hiring a director, raising the money and finally going to prison for their misdeeds is a lesson in broad comic construction. At the core of the insanely funny adventure is a poignant emotional journey of two very different men who become friends. – Music Theatre International

Audition Dates & Times: Sunday & Monday Dec. 6 & 7 at 7:00 PM

Audition Location: Crighton Theatre 234 N. Main St. Conroe, TX 77301

Performance Dates: February 12 – 28, 2016

Auditions for Christmas Belles

Critics and audiences agreed; STAGE RIGHT of Texas, resident theatre company at the historic Crighton Theatre, first production of CHRISTMAS BELLES in 2008 was a hoot and a half!

Many of the original cast will be returning however, there are 5 roles to be filled:

Twink Futrelle – female 35- 45 yr-the middle Futrelle sister and in prison for setting most of the town on fire when she tried to burn her boyfriend’s NASCAR memorabilia in a jealous rage

Justin Waverly – male 20-30 yr.-shy interim pastor at the Tabernacle of the Lamb Church, and in love with Gina Jo but afraid to tell her

Gina Jo (G.J.) Dubberly, Frankie and Dub’s daughter, 20’s. Guileless and enthusiastic

Raynerd Chisum, adult male. Part-time employee at The Dairy Dog, very simple and earnest, always speaks from the heart.

Auditions for these roles will be held at the Crighton Theatre on Oct. 11 & 12 at 7 pm. Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script.

Shrek the Musical Breaks Ticket Record

Congratulations to the cast and crew of Shrek the Musical! This show broke the record for the highest number of tickets (4285 tickets) for any event in Crighton Theatre history by surpassing the Buddy Holly Story in 2008 (4096 tickets). Having been in both shows, I can tell you that both were incredible musicals and very popular with audiences. Both ran a minimum of 10 performances. Both shows had talented casts and awesome backstage crews. But as Gen. Patton once said, "all glory is fleeting". The cast and crew will miss working together but will support each other as they embark on new adventures. Now on to the next show!
