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.
On the heels of their critically praised production of “Christmas Belles”, STAGE RIGHT, Montgomery County's newest theatre company, is pleased to announce their upcoming production of “Love Letters.”
For the 75th birthday bash of for the Crighton Theatre STAGE RIGHT will do what has never been done before at the Crighton – a vaudeville show! Singing, Comedy acts, juggling, and more!
The Futrelle Sisters – Frankie, Twink, Honey Raye and Rhonda Lynn – are in trouble again.
This time, the problem is bigger than ever: their beloved hometown, Fayro, Texas, is in danger of disappearing and it’s up to the sisters to save it from extinction.
So what is Mrs. Bob about? Mrs. Bob Cratchit's Wild Christmas Binge is a musical parody of the Charles Dickens story, A Christmas Carol. The premise of the parody is the question, "What if Dickens' Mrs. Cratchit wasn't so goody-goody, but instead was an angry, stressed-out modern-day American woman who wanted out of this harsh London 1840s life?"
This night in September of 1934 is the biggest in the history of the Cleveland Grand Opera Company world famous tenor Tito Morelli is to perform Otello, his greatest role, at the gala season opener. Saunders, the General Manager, hopes this will put Cleveland on the operatic map. Morelli is late; when he finally sweeps in it is too late to rehearse with the company. Through a hilarious series of mishaps, Il Stupendo is given a double dose of tranquilizers which mix with the booze he has consumed and he passes out. His pulse is so low that Saunders and his assistant Max believe he is dead. What to do? Max is an aspiring singer and Saunders persuades him to get into Morelli's Otello costume and try to fool the audience into thinking he's Il Stupendo. Max succeeds admirably, but Morelli comes to and gets into his other costume. Now two Otellos are running around in costume and two women are also running around, each thinking she is with Il Stupendo! A sensation on Broadway and in London's West End, Lend Me a Tenor is guaranteed to leave you teary eyed with laughter.
Bravo Company presents this hilarious musical spoof puts the "shake" in Shakespeare! With the help of a group of quarreling chorus members - Oregano, Carpaccio, Risotto, Prosciutto, Antipasto, Pesto, Mayo and Romano - we get a deliciously funny spoof of Romeo and Juliet. Their comedic and intelligent commentary seasons the show with laughter galore so actors and audience alike wonï¿½t even realize they're learning about Shakespeare!
The stage is set in modern-day New York City, where clerks of the swanky Montague's Department store and the second-rate Capulet's Discount Mart meet in the street to trade insults. Words are their daggers, so watch out, you might die laughing! Naturally, the heirs to these two retail empires, Romeo and Harriet, fall in love, but don't think you know the rest...this musical has a happy ending! "Humph. Call yourself a tragedy," exclaims Oregano at the end of the show, disappointed to find no dead bodies. Nope, it's pure comedy with pie fights in place of duels, a nurse obsessed with paper cuts, Romeo dressed in a white leisure suit a la John Travolta and an outrageous parody of the most romantic scene in literature. A fun, eclectic collection of musical numbers underscores all this hilarity, including a number in iambic pentameter! It would be a real tragedy to miss out on this one!
See Romeo and Harriet at the historic Crighton Theatre on May 20-21, 2016!
