Change for Good

It's easy to believe that one person cannot make a difference.  Yet combine many small efforts into one and you can produce an incredible effect.

We were always impressed by the Change for Good campaign.  We've always had extra change from every trip overseas.  The change is useless to us.  But if enough of us give it away, we can make a difference.  A lot in this case.  To date, the Change for Good campaign has raised over $150 million dollars.

You can do the same thing with your computer.  Most of us do not use our computers 100% of the time.  When your computer is idle - which is most of the time - it can work for good.  How?  There are many efforts where the computer works on research efforts when it isn't busy.

There are many volunteer computing efforts out there.  Many use a particular piece of software called BOINC - the Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing.  You can choose from many different educational and research efforts.  Pharmaceutical development? Find new particles that explain our universe? You control what efforts are explored and how much resources (i.e. time) you donate.

So how exactly does idle time on a computer help anyone?  Experimentation is expensive and takes time.  It is possible to model or guide experimentation by running computer scenarios or models.  Modeling can also be expensive unless you have access to donated computing cycles.  That's where we volunteers come in.  One idle computer doesn't help very much.  But many idle computers can make a difference - especially when we are talking about hundreds of thousands of computers.

Main Stage Productions Inc DBA STAGE RIGHT is in the top 1% of donors when if comes to computer cycles. Out of 4.7 million registered users that's impressive. Unfortunately that is a tiny fraction of the 2 billion computers that could be donating their idle cycles to research.

Let's work to make a difference a bit at a time.

Crighton Renovation and Move-Out (as of Nov. 6, 2017 at 7 PM)

Oct 30-31 - Thanks to Deanie, Jim Boy, Denise and Dave Hackman for marking items
Nov 1 - Trash bin is full. Thanks to Denise, Carolyn, Murph, and Bingham for the help.
Nov 2 - Snafu with movers. No moving today. Need to put wheels on really large units (like stairs).
Nov 3 - New trash bin got here at 10 AM. Pod to arrive around 4 PM at white house. Thanks to Denise and Jonathan for help with the big set items. Trash bin is about 1/2-2/3 full.
Nov 4 - Thanks to Deanie. Jim Boy, and BIngham for helping fill up trash bin #2.
Nov. 5 - strike for Young Frankenstein
Nov. 6 - trash bin #3 is 1/3 full. More set and props items moved to offsite location and white house. Still at least 1-2 more days of moving/trash.
Nov. 9 (Thursday) - another day of moving out of the Muse building. Trash bin gets removed the next day.


    The graphic below is the initial recommendation on an overall view of the items in the Muse building and where items could go. Each box represents 10 linear feet (depth varies from 2-12 ft). While offsite storage is more expensive (about 75% more) the width and height of the storage make it easier to move items in and out.

    Temporary pods at the white house approved by City.


Sometimes it takes a catastrophe to bring people together and remind us of the really important things in life. The stories of Texans helping each other is inspiring.

Casts for Noises Off and Young Frankenstein - please continue to check-in via the Facebook pages on rehearsals and set builds.

Water is coming into the Crighton but is under control.. Thanks to Roger and Jim for checking on the leaks. Thanks to Leona and Carolyn for mopping and documenting new leaks in the theatre. The stage is now dry and awaiting actors and crew when you can make it safely.

The information resources out on the Internet are amazing (not to mention Facebook, Twitter, etc.) Check on Montgomery County road conditions.or lake and river levels.

Feeling helpless? Help where help is needed. Interfaith of the Woodlands is acting as a collection/distribution center for other local churches and shelters as the needs of each area change hourly.

Valentine's Day at the Lions Club

The cast of My Fair Lady sent a singing valentine to the Conroe Lions' Club on Wednesday, Feb. 8, 2017.

The cast sang 'Why Can't the English", "The Rain in Spain", "On the Street Where You Live", and "I Could Have Danced All Night". Thanks to the Lions Club for inviting us!

Join the 2500+ patrons who have already bought tickets to My Fair Lady! Donate to Meals on Wheels when you come.

Opening Weekend for Blithe Spirit

Over 300 patrons laughed their way through Noel Coward's best known comedy Blithe Spirit. Opening night patrons were offered tasty treats themed to match the other worldly comedy. The cast includes both actors that have graced the stage of the historic Crighton for many years and newcomers to the Montgomery County area. To get a glimpse of the spooky set see the production photos thanks to Dave Clements of DWC Photography.

41 Dogs with New Homes

If anyone thinks that you "just do theatre", think again. Thanks to the collaboration of three non-profits - Operation Pets Alive, Cloud Nine Rescue, and the 3700+ patrons who came to see Legally Blonde the Musical - Stage Right was able to fund a flight to take 41 dogs to new homes. Without this funding no flight this month would have left Conroe. See the youtube video that celebrates this achievement. What we can do together is amazing!

Memorial for Larry Ransberger

It is with deep sorrow that we note the passing of Larry Ransberger. He was a fixture in the greater Houston theatre community. While he was instrumental during the growth of Playhouse 1960 for the past 20 years, he also was one of the first from the Houston theatres to join us in our efforts to make the greater Houston theatre community a more kind, cooperative environment. He helped us re-create No Time for Sergeants at the historic Crighton and co-produced Always, Patsy Cline when we took the show on tour.

His memorial will be held at Klein Funeral Home at 2 pm Saturday, July 9, 2016 at Klein Funeral Home Chapel, 9719 Wortham Blvd, Houston, Texas 77065
