Red, Hot, and Blue Parade

The cast and crew of Hairspray marched, danced, and sang their way around the Market Street area in the Woodlands, TX. If an award was given for the greenest entry (i.e. least carbon footprint) they would have won as the vintage car they used had to be pushed all the way around the parade route. That did not deter or detract from the energy that the cast had while dancing, singing, and giving out rack cards to push the show. The parade was simulcast on Sunny 99.1 and the Woodlands Online website. See this video clip on the Hairspray cast. You can also read more about the show in the Dockline magazine.

After the show those that still had energy went to Red Robin for lunch. See pictures from the parade here.

Hairspray open this Friday on the 11th of July. Get your tickets today!

Anything Goes Cruise Raffle

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.

The Trip to Bountiful

The Trip to Bountiful tells the story of an elderly woman, Carrie Watts, who wants to return home to the small town where she grew up, but is frequently stopped from leaving Houston, Texas by her daughter-in-law and an overprotective son who will not let her travel alone.

Old Mrs. Watts is determined to outwit her son and bossy daughter-in-law, and sets out to catch a train, only to find that trains do not go to Bountiful anymore. She eventually boards a bus to a town near her childhood home. On the journey, she befriends a girl traveling alone and reminisces about her younger years and grieves for her lost relatives. Her son and daughter-in-law eventually track her down, with the help of the local police force. However, Mrs. Watts is determined. The local sheriff, moved by her yearning to visit her girlhood home, offers to drive her out to what remains of Bountiful. The village is deserted, and the few remaining houses are derelict. Mrs. Watts is moved to tears as she surveys her father's land and the remains of the family home. Despite her disappointment, her spirit is renewed and she returns to Houston.

Singing in the Rain

The silent-film romantic team of Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont is the toast of Tinseltown. While Lockwood and Lamont personify smoldering passions onscreen, in real life the down-to-earth Lockwood can't stand the egotistical, brainless Lina. He prefers the company of aspiring actress Kathy Selden, whom he met while escaping his screaming fans. Watching these intrigues from the sidelines is Cosmo Brown, Don's best pal and on-set pianist. Cosmo is promoted to musical director of Monumental Pictures by studio head R.F. Simpson when the talking-picture revolution commences. That's all right for Cosmo, but how will talkies affect the upcoming Lockwood-Lamont vehicle "The Dueling Cavalier"? Don, an accomplished song-and-dance man, should have no trouble adapting to the microphone. Lina, however, is another matter; put as charitably as possible, she has a voice that sounds like fingernails on a blackboard. The disastrous preview of the team's first talkie has the audience howling with derisive laughter. On the strength of the plot alone, Singin' in the Rain is a delight. But with the addition of songs such as -- "You Were Meant for Me," "You Are My Lucky Star," "The Broadway Melody," and of course the title song Singing in the Rain -- the show becomes one of the greatest Hollywood musicals ever made.

Check out the review from David Dow Bentley III. Wow!

The Best Christmas Pageant Ever

The Herdmans are six scrawny children ( Ralph, Imogene, Leroy, Claude, Ollie and Gladys) who are notorious delinquents in their community. Among other things, they lie, steal, smoke cigars (even the girls!), and hit little kids. The kids basically raise themselves. Their father walked out when the youngest was two years old, and their mother works double shifts at the shoe factory.

The story is narrated by Beth Bradley, a girl in Imogene Herdman's class. Beth's brother, Charlie, unwisely lies to Leroy Herdman, saying that he doesn't mind Leroy stealing his dessert at school because Charlie gets all the snacks he wants at Sunday School. This leads to all six Herdmans showing up at church the next Sunday for the first time in their lives.

Beth's mother is put in charge of the Christmas pageant when the original leader, Mrs. Helen Armstrong, fells and breaks her leg. The announcement for the auditions happens to be on the day the Herdmans show up at church, and, avid movie fans that they are, the Herdman's volunteer (and threaten) their way into all six of the main parts.

In spite of the Herdmans never having heard the Christmas story before (and wanting to change the script so they can hunt down the evil King Herod) and in spite of never making it through a complete rehearsal, the show does go on and turns out to be, as everyone says, the best Christmas pageant they have ever seen. Nobody can put a finger on the precise reason, but it has to do with the fact that the Herdmans just act like real people, probably like the characters in the Bible story really were, rather than the radiant, haloed saints that are usually portrayed.

The Dixie Swim Club

Five Southern women, whose friendships began many years ago on their college swim team, set aside a long weekend every August to recharge those relationships. Free from husbands, kids and jobs, they meet at the same beach cottage on North Carolina's Outer Banks to catch up, laugh and meddle in each other's lives. The Dixie Swim Club focuses on four of those weekends and spans a period of thirty-three years. Sheree, the spunky team captain, desperately tries to maintain her organized and 'perfect' life, and continues to be the group's leader. Dinah, the wise-cracking overachiever, is a career dynamo. But her victories in the courtroom are in stark contrast to the frustrations of her personal life. Lexie, pampered and outspoken, is determined to hold on to her looks and youth as long as possible. She enjoys being married - over and over and over again. The self-deprecating and acerbic Vernadette, acutely aware of the dark cloud that hovers over her life, has decided to just give in and embrace the chaos. And sweet, eager-to-please Jeri Neal experiences a late entry into motherhood that takes them all by surprise.

As their lives unfold and the years pass, these women increasingly rely on one another, through advice and raucous repartee, to get through the challenges (men, sex, marriage, parenting, divorce, aging) that life flings at them. And when fate throws a wrench into one of their lives in the second act, these friends, proving the enduring power of 'teamwork', rally 'round their own with the strength and love that takes this comedy in a poignant and surprising direction. 'The Dixie Swim Club' is the story of these five unforgettable women - a hilarious and touching comedy about friendships that last forever.
