Members of STAGE RIGHT gave away candy at the 2013 Annual Conroe Trick or Treat Trail on Saturday, October 19, 2013. Over 800 kids came to Carl Barton, Jr. Park in costume to get candies. However, the kids seemed to be in awe of the adults in costume. Both kids and adults were excited that A Christmas Story was coming to the Crighton (again) and planned to attend. While Glinda (Carolyn Wong) and Pick-A-Little Lady (Katie Kelly) were popular with the kids, the clear favorite was the "deranged bunny" (Michael Wong) from A Christmas Story.

If you missed opening weekend then you missed a great time! Patrons who had seen Arsenic and Old Lace before had forgotten how funny this dark comedy can be! The cast and crew - both seasoned veterans and newcomers to the stage - proved that Arsenic and Old Lace is a timeless classic that can be enjoyed by young and old alike.
You still have two more weekends to enjoy the show. Bring your friends and have a great time!
Representatives from the cast and crew of Arsenic and Old Lace went on the radio program Mind Your Business with host Cassandra Roschen to promote the sixth season opener for STAGE RIGHT. The interview featured veteran director Brenda Storseth, film and stage actor Katt Gilcrease, and Carolyn Corsano Wong - Artistic Director for STAGE RIGHT.
Both Katt and Carolyn have performed Arsenic and Old Lace several times around the greater Houston area. So why revisit the play again? While Arsenic and Old Lace is billed as a dark comedy, it is still a classic, family-friendly show that has held its own over the years.
STAGE RIGHT of Texas announces auditions for their upcoming production of A CHRISTMAS STORY. Director Melody Montez is looking for both cast and crew for the show.
The cast requirements are for two men (ages 40 and older), two women (ages 35 and older), three boys (ages 9-12), one boy (age 5-7), and two girls (ages 9-12). Other children ages 5-12 and adults may be cast for various non-speaking roles. Actor call times will be staggered with children rehearsing first and released early on school nights. Note that the role of Ralphie Parker has been precast.
Auditions will be held at the Crighton Theatre on Sept. 8-9 at 7 pm. Callback auditions may be held at the discretion of the director. Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. Contact the director at email@example.com for questions about the auditions, the show or to volunteer to help backstage.
Christmas is a time of great expectations, especially through the eyes of a child. For nine-year-old Ralphie Parker that great expectation is a genuine Red Ryder 200 Shot Carbine Action Air Rifle. No self-respecting cowboy would be without one. Unfortunately, his mom, teacher and even the Santa Claus toiling away at Goldblatt's Department Store share the same reaction to his Christmas wish: "You'll shoot your eye out!" Based on the book by humorist Jean Shepherd and adapted for the stage by Philip Grecian the play has all the scenes you’ve come to love in the movie; the flagpole, the bunny suit, and the infamous lamp! A CHRISTMAS STORY will delight the whole family and fill you with the spirit of the season.
Show dates are Dec. 6-22 with Friday & Saturday performances at 8 pm and three Sunday matinees at 2 pm. Performances will be held at the historic Crighton Theatre at 234 N. Main in downtown Conroe.
We like to think or Arsenic and Old Lace as a comedy, but you could argue it has the elements of a thriller - as least circa 1944). So while the cast and crew of Arsenic and Old Lace are preparing diligently for opening night, you can decide which video promo of the show you like best - upbeat or thriller? Yes, it is amazing how much difference a little music can make.
It doesn't really matter. You will laugh at the antics of the Brewsters. But just as serious plays have comic relief, comedies also have their serious moments. Which fits the show better? Come to the show and decide for yourself. Get you tickets today for Arsenic and Old Lace!
If you waited for the last moment you likely did not get to see The Wizard of Oz as we sold out our final performance. 3400 people got to experience the magic of Oz. Even more important, the three months of rehearsal turned the cast and crew into a family. This video on youtube is dedicated to the hard work of the Wizard of Oz family.
