Standing ovations every night?! Yes and more! Patrons have enjoyed the incredible performances and the preshow videos so much they don't want to leave the theatre.
Over 600 patrons came to the opening weekend of Anything Goes. Critics claimed they had never seen that much dancing on the Crighton stage in 30+ years. Food, flowers, comedy, fantastic singing, tap dancing, and a chance to win a cruise! There is no better way to spend an evening. To see some of the production pictures click here.
Win a cruise to Mexico, Grand Cayman, and Jamaica! For the next three shows we will be raffling a cruise to Mexico departing from the port of Galveston! Travel to a Caribbean island perched atop a coral reef: Cozumel. Drift among star corals and sea fans on a Cozumel diving excursion or simply kick back on the beach as the turquoise waves roll in. Don't miss the opportunity to explore the ruins of the ancient Mayan city of Tulum, majestically perched above the turquoise Caribbean. Swim with the dolphins or spend the day shopping onshore!
Next is Grand Cayman - a group of three magnificent tropical islands Christopher Columbus called "Las Tortugas" (the turtles) for the sea creatures he found in the ocean water. Among other attractions, visitors to the island will enjoy learning about the turtles, exploring Seven-Mile Beach and enjoying the undersea world.
Last stop is Jamaica where beachcomers can spend time on the white sands and enjoy the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean. Take a leasurely ride in a glass bottom boat and see underwater life without having to snorkel or scuba dive. Visit the spectacular Dunn's River Falls near Ocho Rios, where you can climb 600 feet up from the base of the falls or retreat to the beach where the rushing water exits into the ocean. At Dolphin Cove you can watch the dolphins at play or walk through the jungle to see friendly birds and iguanas.
This eight day, seven night cruise will be awarded to one lucky couple on the last performance of the season (Hairspray - July 27, 2014). Tickets are $5 each or five tickets for $20. You can buy tickets during intermission or purchase tickets online (button at the top). Proceeds will support future Stage Right shows at the Crighton.
For more information about the cruise itself see the following article from the Houston Chronicle.
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.

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!

The age-old tale of Boy-Meets-Girl and the complications which ensue intrigue every audience, and no musical puts it on stage better than ANYTHING GOES. This Tony awarding winning show is an amusing story wrapped around one of Cole Porter's magical scores. Terrific Cole Porter songs include It's De-Lovely, Friendship, I Get A Kick Out Of You, All Through The Night, Anything Goes, You're The Top and Blow, Gabriel, Blow. It's a wonder that all the romances are sorted out and disaster is averted aboard the magical ship where ANYTHING GOES!

The 1950's are out and change is in the air! HAIRSPRAY, winner of 8 Tony Awards including Best Musical, is a family-friendly musical piled bouffant high with laughter, romance, and deliriously tuneful songs.

When her dream comes true, Tracy is transformed from social outcast to sudden star. She must use her newfound power to dethrone the reigning Teen Queen, win the affections of heartthrob Link Larkin, and integrate a TV network, all without denting her 'do!

Set in mid-century Atlanta, Driving Miss daisy tells the story of an elderly Jewish matron, Daisy Werthan, and her chauffeur, Hoke Coleburn. At first Daisy is none to happy about being forced to rely on a black man. But Hoke gradually wins her over, and during the 25-year span of the play the two develop a deep-rooted affection. The play is a delicate depiction of racial tensions and of growing old. Alfred Uhry, the playwright, has created two outsiders who come to a mutual respect based on their independence, strength, and stubborn integrity.
