Farce Of Nature

Farce of NatureBy Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, and Jamie Wooten
Performances: April 14-30. 2017
Auditions: Feb 12-13, 2017 (updated)

The non-stop hilarity of this Southern-fried farce highlights one day in the life of the Wilburn family of Mayhew, Arkansas. Meet D. Gene Wilburn, the owner and proprietor of The Reel 'Em Inn, the finest little fishing lodge in the Ozarks. Well, it used to be, but lately business is down, tourists are few, and the lone guest who's just checked in - an extremely jittery Carmine DeLuca from Chicago - is only there due to a location shift in the Witness Protection Program. Doesn't anybody just want to fish anymore? Certainly not D. Gene's frustrated wife, Wanelle, who's fed up with their lackluster romantic life. She's taken drastic steps to improve it through hypnotic suggestion and for the life of him, D. Gene cannot understand why his pants keep falling down. D. Gene's feisty sister, Maxie, has her own problems, chief among them battling ageism to resume her career in law enforcement. She' s determined to prove her worth by keeping Carmine DeLuca alive through the weekend - a task that's going to prove to be much harder than she bargained for since she keeps losing both her gun and the bullets. And she never anticipated the gangster Camine's been dodging for the last five years, Sonny Barbosa, is about to walk through the door, in hot pursuit of his sexy wife, Lola. Seems the headstong Lola has driven hundreds of miles to the lodge to follow her boytoy, D. Gene and Wanelle's son, Ty. But Lola meets her match in Ty's seemingly innocent girlfriend, Jenna, whose patience has reached the breaking point after months of waiting for Ty to come home.

In the deliciously funny romp that ensues, they all hide, lie, disguise themselves, cross-dress, and slam doors chasing one another while trying to figure out the source of an increasingly awful stench. By then it's too late and the lodge is surrounded by vicious critters and hungry varmints that have followed the odor down from the hills. Yet by the delightfully chaotic climax of this one outrageous day, love blossoms, truths are revealed and the lives of all - family, guests, and gangsters alike - change in incredible and surprising ways. This side-splittingly funny Jones Hope Wooten comedy is guaranteed to win your audiences over, hook, line, and sinker!

Which "Attaboy" Do You Prefer?

Department of Defense, United States of AmericaNo Time for Sergeants had a incredible opening weekend. The cast and crew received two honors: one from a reviewer (David Dow Bentley III) and one from Command Sergeant Major (CSM) Holland.

"It was Saturday night on Sept. 11, a somber date in American history to say the least. So it was most appropriate that before the Crighton Theatre curtain rose on Ira Levin’s hilarious comedy, No Time for Sergeants, director, Carolyn Corsano Wong, came on stage to welcome the audience, and asked that everyone first rise for a moment of silence in memory of the lives lost on that unforgettably tragic day. It was also very appropriate that in this time of continuing war abroad, Stage Right has decided that every performance of this new production will offer free admission to service veterans and their spouses. But perhaps the best thing being offered would be hilarity plain and simple. This may very well be the best comedy performance I have ever seen in the great state of Texas!" - David Dow Bentley III. Read the entire review here.

CSM Holland gave the cast and crew a commemorative coin for the benefit performance of No Time for Sergeants and for working with the US Troop Support Foundation to collect items for active duty troops. While we believe it is important both as individuals and as an organization to do the right thing whether or not the effort is acknowledged, it is always nice to get a "pat on the back" once in a while. Thanks once again to Darrel's Catering who donated the BBQ dinner for the Lone Star Honor Flight (WWII veterans). See the pictures from the benefit event here. To remember the service of these brave men and women we are highlighting a little seen documentary on World War II.

No Time for Sergeants performances continue until Sept. 26.

Honoring Our Veterans - Part II

The opening weekend for No Time for Sergeants began with a "bang". After two successful evening shows the cast and crew made it to the benefit performance. All veterans and their spouses were invited to attend free of charge. The special guests of honor were the men and women of the Lone Star Honor Flight. This group is composed of World War II veterans who have visited Washington D.C. (all expenses paid) as a small token of the community's appreciation for their service.

Honoring Our Veterans

Lone Star Honor FlightSTAGE RIGHT is preparing for the next comedy - No Time for Sergeants. For this show we are partnering with the Lone Star Honor Flight group based at the Storage 105 facility off 105 in Conroe. We met with some of the World War II veterans and joined them on their trip to the HEARTS museum in Huntsville. If you are interested in documentaries on the honor flights, Craig Duff has an excellent video that he did for Time magazine. Craig has also given us permission to publish his blog about one of the honor flights. Look for the article in September's DockLine magazine.

The WWII veterans are excited about coming to see No Time for Sergeants. They will be the guests of honor at a benefit performance on Sunday, September 12, 2010. All veterans and their spouses will be given complimentary tickets to the benefit performance provided they call the Box Office at 936-441-SHOW by Sept. 6 and they bring items to support our active duty troops.

We will be collecting items to benefit our active duty personnel through the US Troop Support Foundation. See this list of items that are most needed here.
