Addams Family – The Musical

The Addams Family - A New MusicalBook by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice
Music and Lyrics by Andrew Lippa
Based on Characters Created by Charles Addams
Location: Crighton Theatre
Auditions: July 25-26, 2016 (Monday and Tuesday)
Performances: Oct. 21-Nov. 6, 2016

In the kooky, upside-down world of the Addams Family, to be sad is to be happy, to feel pain is to feel joy, and death and suffering are the stuff of their dreams. Nonetheless, this quirky family still has to deal with many of the same challenges faced by any other family, and the spookiest nightmare faced by every family creates the focus Lippa, Brickman, and Elice’s musical: the Addams kids are growing up. The Addamses have lived by their unique values for hundreds of years and Gomez and Morticia, the patriarch and matriarch of the clan, would be only too happy to continue living that way. Their dark, macabre, beloved daughter Wednesday, however, is now an eighteen year-old young woman who is ready for a life of her own. She has fallen in love with Lucas Beineke, a sweet, smart boy from a normal, respectable Ohio family — the most un-Addams sounding person one could be! And to make matters worse, she has invited the Beinekes to their home for dinner. In one fateful, hilarious night, secrets are disclosed, relationships are tested, and the Addams family must face up to the one horrible thing they’ve managed to avoid for generations: change. Check out our production pictures thanks to Dave Clements!
Oct. 21-Nov.6, 2016; $15-$22

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

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:

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!
