She must be friendly, relentless, and goodhearted with a vibrant, lovable personality and love to sing and dance.

STAGE RIGHT of Texas announces auditions for their upcoming production of A CHRISTMAS STORY. Director Melody Montez is looking for both cast and crew for the show.
The cast requirements are for two men (ages 40 and older), two women (ages 35 and older), three boys (ages 9-12), one boy (age 5-7), and two girls (ages 9-12). Other children ages 5-12 and adults may be cast for various non-speaking roles. Actor call times will be staggered with children rehearsing first and released early on school nights. Note that the role of Ralphie Parker has been precast.
Auditions will be held at the Crighton Theatre on Sept. 8-9 at 7 pm. Callback auditions may be held at the discretion of the director. Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. Contact the director at firstname.lastname@example.org for questions about the auditions, the show or to volunteer to help backstage.
Christmas is a time of great expectations, especially through the eyes of a child. For nine-year-old Ralphie Parker that great expectation is a genuine Red Ryder 200 Shot Carbine Action Air Rifle. No self-respecting cowboy would be without one. Unfortunately, his mom, teacher and even the Santa Claus toiling away at Goldblatt's Department Store share the same reaction to his Christmas wish: "You'll shoot your eye out!" Based on the book by humorist Jean Shepherd and adapted for the stage by Philip Grecian the play has all the scenes you’ve come to love in the movie; the flagpole, the bunny suit, and the infamous lamp! A CHRISTMAS STORY will delight the whole family and fill you with the spirit of the season.
Show dates are Dec. 6-22 with Friday & Saturday performances at 8 pm and three Sunday matinees at 2 pm. Performances will be held at the historic Crighton Theatre at 234 N. Main in downtown Conroe.

Its 1941, Brooklyn, N.Y., and Mortimer Brewster, a New York critic of both drama and marriage, is finally getting hitched to Elaine Harper, the girl next door. Before heading off for an evening at the theatre with his new bride to be, Mortimer stops in to deliver the news to his aunts, Abby and Martha Brewster, two sweet little old ladies who donate toys to charity and care for their nephew Teddy, a bugle blowing nut-bag who thinks he’s Theodore Roosevelt. But Abby and Martha aren’t as sweet and innocent as they seem. Mortimer soon discovers, to his horror, that his dear old aunties have a dozen bodies buried in the basement. It seems the Brewster sisters have a new hobby – luring lonely old men into their home and serving them Elderberry Wine with their own special recipe, a teaspoonful of arsenic, a teaspoonful of strychnine and just a pinch of cyanide (Deee-lightful!) To make matters worse, Mortimer’s deranged and very dangerous brother Jonathan shows up. Jonathan, on the run from the law, has a dead body in the trunk of his car, a drunken plastic surgeon at his side, and a face that looks like Boris Karloff. Mortimer frantically attempts to deal with dead bodies, insane asylum directors, attempted murders, and a new bride all in one crazy Halloween night.
