Final Weekend for Singin' in the Rain

If you missed Singin' in the Rain then you didn't join the 3740 patrons from as far away as The Netherlands who came to see this tap, singing, dancing, and comic extravaganza! Whether you came with low expectations or looking forward to seeing family and friends on stage, all were suitably impressed. The show set the attendance record for the highest attended show in the last 7 years.

If you want to reminisce or are just curious, check out the production photos. Or learn about the magic of making rain from Dennis O'Connor. Read the review from David Dow Bentley III. Or see the iconic dance from both the backstage and front of stage view.

Cast List for The Trip to Bountiful

Thank you all again for auditioning for The Trip to Bountiful. As I said previously, you ALL made my job casting this show very difficult. Everyone brought their 'A' game. The cast list is given below. If you were not cast in a role or the role you wanted it does not mean you didn't do a great job - everyone did! As a director, I must make a picture for the audience. All the pieces need to fit together. As an actor, I know it is very difficult to accept when we are not cast, believe me I know, but I hope you can appreciate that what you all did was great but it may not have fit with the others I had to choose from.

Characters
Carrie Watts.....Leona Hoegsberg
Ludie Watts.....Bill Giffen
Jessie Mae Watts.....Melody Montez
Thelma.....Cristy Campobella
Houston Ticket Man #1.....Jim Murph
Houston Ticket Man #2.....Riley O. Piddle

Bus station passengers- if anyone that auditioned and did not get a role would be interested in being a bus station passenger, please let me know. It would be minimal rehearsal - come to first read through, when we block that scene, and then 2 weeks prior to opening (we'll need to have you help with running crew as well for the other scenes).

First read is Sunday the 22rd at 6 pm.

Final Weekend for the Best Christmas Pageant Ever

Over 3700 people have seen or are planning to see The Best Christmas Pageant Ever at the Crighton. By week's end The Best Christmas Pageant will be the highest attended show at the Crighton in the past 7 years. Merry Christmas to the Crighton!

So what? Are you kidding!? Most theatres in the greater Houston area could have sellout crowds all weekend and not have as many patrons as we do at a single performance. Yet we don't do theatre to simply get a large number of patrons. Our mission is to support the historic Crighton Theatre. STAGE RIGHT succeeds at this mission by putting on the best show we can that appeals to the largest number of people. We strive to present the best show possible. At the end of the day we know we must be a good corporate citizen and support not only the arts in Montgomery County but all non-profits that serve our community.

A heartfelt thanks to all our patrons who help us to support the Crighton. Thanks for bringing personal care products to support the Salvation Army. And by all means, come to see the Best Christmas Pageant Ever before it's too late!

In case you don't get to come to the show, check out our production photos.

Opening Weekend for The Best Christmas Pageant Ever

The cast of the Best Christmas Pageant Ever have worked hard to prepare for the opening weekend despite seasonal illnesses that have gripped the cast and crew. Nevertheless, they were rewarded as 1100 patrons came to opening weekend.

The Best Christmas Pageant Ever is about a group of unruly kids that discover the true meaning of Christmas. What a lovely reminder as we proceed into the holiday season where it is easy to forget the meaning of the season. Bring some personal hygiene items to benefit the Salvation Army and enjoy the show!

The Addams Family

Legally Blonde - the Musical

Book by Heather Hach
Music and Lyrics by Laurence O'Keefe and Nell Benjamin
Based on the novel by Amanda Brown and the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer motion picture
Audition Dates: April 24-25, 2016
Performance Dates: July 8-24, 2016

A fabulously fun international award-winning musical based on the adored movie, Legally Blonde The Musical, follows the transformation of Elle Woods as she tackles stereotypes, snobbery, and scandal in pursuit of her dreams. This action-packed musical explodes on the stage with memorable songs and dynamic dances. Equal parts hilarious and heart-warming warming, this musical is so much fun it should be illegal!

LEGALLY BLONDE The Musical will take you from the sorority house to the halls of justice with Broadway's brightest new heroine (and of course, her chihuahua, Bruiser). Based on the adored movie, Legally Blonde The Musical stays true to form with a peppy score and playful book. This musical is ridiculously enjoyable from start to finish.

Elle Woods appears to have it all. Her life is turned upside-down, however, when her boyfriend dumps her so he can start getting serious about his life and attend Harvard Law. Determined to get him back, Elle uses her charm to get into Harvard Law. At school, she struggles with peers, professors, and Warner Huntington. With the help of Paulette and Emmett, though, Elle quickly realizes her potential and sets out to prove herself to the world.

Rumors

Written by Neil Simon

Performance Dates: April 15-May 1, 2016

At a large, tastefully appointed Sneden's Landing townhouse, the Deputy Mayor of New York has just shot himself. Though only a flesh wound, four couples are about to experience a severe attack of Farce. Gathering for their tenth wedding anniversary, the host lies bleeding in the other room and his wife is nowhere in sight. His lawyer, Ken and wife Chris must get "the story" straight before the other guests arrive. As the confusions and mis-communications mount, the evening spins off into classic farcical hilarity. See the production pictures from DWC Photography or the promotional video that also includes the production pictures.

The Producers


Book by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan
Music and Lyrics by Mel Brooks
Based on the 1968 Film

Audition Dates (tentative): Nov. 15-16, 2015
Performance Dates: Feb. 12-28, 2016

Bialystock and Bloom! Those names should strike terror and hysteria in anyone familiar with Mel Brooks' classic cult comedy film. Now as a big Broadway musical, The Producers once again sets the standard for modern, outrageous, in-your-face humor. It is a truly "boffo" hit, winning a record twelve Tony Awards and wowing capacity crowds night after night. The plot is simple: 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. With a truly hysterical book co-written by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan (Annie) and music and lyrics by Mr. Brooks, The Producers skewers Broadway traditions and takes no prisoners as it proudly proclaims itself an "equal opportunity offender!"

Christmas Belles

by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, and Jamie Wooten
Audition Dates (tentative): Oct. 11-12, 2015. Some roles have been precast
Performance Dates: Dec. 4-20, 2015

If you missed this in 2010, don't miss this hilarious Christmas celebration described as "The Golden Girls" meet "A Charlie Brown Christmas"!

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. A cranky Frankie is weeks overdue with her second set of twins. Twink, recently jilted and bitter about it, is in jail for inadvertently burning down half the town. And hot-flash-suffering Honey Raye is desperately trying to keep the Tabernacle of the Lamb’s Christmas Program from spiraling into chaos. But things are not looking too promising: Miss Geneva, the ousted director of the previous twenty-seven productions, is ruthless in her attempts to take over the show.

The celebrity guest Santa Claus — played by Frankie’s long-suffering husband, Dub — is passing a kidney stone. One of the shepherds refuses to watch over his flock by night without pulling his little red wagon behind him. And the entire cast is dropping like flies due to food poisoning from the Band Boosters’ Pancake Supper. And when Frankie lets slip a family secret that has been carefully guarded for decades, all hope for a successful Christmas program seems lost, even with an Elvis impersonator at the manger. But in true Futrelle fashion, the feuding sisters find a way to pull together in order to present a Christmas program the citizens of Fayro will never forget. Their hilarious holiday journey through a misadventure-filled Christmas Eve is guaranteed to bring joy to your world!

On Golden Pond

by Ernest Thompson
Audition Dates: July 19-20, 2015
Performance Dates: Sept. 11-27, 2015

This is the love story of Ethel and Norman Thayer, who are returning to their summer home on Golden Pond for the forty-eighth year. He is a retired professor, nearing eighty, with heart palpitations and a failing memory—but still as tart-tongued, observant and eager for life as ever. Ethel, ten years younger, and the perfect foil for Norman, delights in all the small things that have enriched and continue to enrich their long life together. They are visited by their divorced, middle-aged daughter and her dentist fiancé, who then go off to Europe, leaving his teenage son behind for the summer. The boy quickly becomes the "grandchild" the elderly couple have longed for, and as Norman revels in taking his ward fishing and thrusting good books at him, he also learns some lessons about modern teenage awareness—and slang—in return. In the end, as the summer wanes, so does their brief idyll, and in the final, deeply moving moments of the play, Norman and Ethel are brought even closer together by the incidence of a mild heart attack. Time, they know, is now against them, but the years have been good and, perhaps, another summer on Golden Pond still awaits.
