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.
Over 3700 people came to see Legally Blonde. This makes it the third highest attended show after Shrek the Musical and Singin' in the Rain. Even better, we were able to raise over $4500 dollars for Operation Pets Alive. Stage Right will get their own flight for life!
After the show the cast sang (what else) to video karaoke with the biggest "TV" around - the 24 foot screen on the stage of the Crighton theatre. While the cast is going many separate ways, they made this a summer to remember. Now on to the 2016-2017 season of Fantasy!
Thanks for all who auditioned for Blithe Spirit. Your talent was amazing!

Almost 1300 patrons came to see Legally Blonde this weekend. We have been surprised at the appeal of the show across all age ranges. While it is definitely not a show for everyone, the high energy songs and fast paced dialogue make for a fun time! Thanks to all the large groups that came for a fun, shared experience.
We have also raised $2500 to date for Operation Pets Alive. At this pace we should be able to fund our own flight for life for a set of rescue dogs needing a home! Help us to reach that goal!
