"Mele Kalikimaka" is the Thing to Say...

STAGE RIGHT continues its tradition of bring laughter to the season with "A Christmas Story". We know that the holidays can be stressful. It's nice to be able to relax for a short time. Even better if you and your family can have fun together in a safe, clean, and nothing controversial style.

Every culture has a way to "party" or celebrate. The Hawaiians don't really have a proper Hawaiian phrase for "Merry Christmas" and came up with a phonetic translation that rolled more easily off their tongues. The phrase "Mele Kalikimaka" was popularized in the song by Bing Crosby. Perhaps you remember the song and hopefully it brings a smile to you. Sometimes when you say something familar in a different way you are able to find new meaning or appreciation.

I have to work hard every year to make Christmas special. It's too easy to become jaded by the commercialism of the season. Relax. Take a deep breath. Try yoga. Do a random act of kindness. Forgive someone or tell the you're sorry.

I have delayed my Christmas holidays every year since I can remember so that our extended family can spread a little joy to our patrons in Montgomery County. It's hard work and takes some sacrifice. But nothing is more rewarding than sharing a little joy during this Christmas season. Join us at the Crighton for a A Christmas Story!

A Message From Carol Burnett

Even though the Carol Burnett Show is over six months away, planning has already started. Coincidentally, Carol Burnett will be in the area presenting her one woman show "Laughter and Reflection with Carol Burnett" at the Grand in Galveston on the same weekend as our opening weekend. Wouldn't it be wonderful if she could come by and lend support to a show with her name?

It was not to be. However, Carol herself called to wish STAGE RIGHT well and make some skit suggestions. Addiitonally she has suggested that the non-profit spotlight for the Carol Burnett Show benefit one of her favorite charities called The Teddy Bear Cancer Foundation. This nonprofit organization provides financial and emotional support to families of children with cancer who live in Santa Barbara area. STAGE RIGHT will work with The Teddy Bear Cancer Foundation to most efficiently help them and local kids with cancer.

If you have talent or an act that is reminiscent of the 1970's, start practicing now!

STAGE RIGHT Announces Cast of Mama Won't Fly

Thank you to all those that came to audition for MAMA WON’T FLY. You were all so good it made my job very difficult! As I mentioned at callbacks I changed my mind about casting as few people as possible. As a result the character roles, especially for the men, are spread rather thin. I am a true believer that there are no small roles only – well, you fill in the blank. Here is the cast of the world premiere production of MAMA WON’T FLY. Below the cast list is the synopsis of the show that will appear on the back cover of the script.

Waterway Arts Festival Presentations

Bravo Company went to the Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival on April 9-10, 2011.

Waterway Arts Festival

This weekend was unusually busy as the cast of Harvey was asked to start building their set and work publicity at the Waterway Arts Festival. Elwood was asking patrons if they had seen Harvey. One patron had seen Harvey across the way. Meanwhile, Cinderella and her fairy godmother were entertaining the kids that came to the festival. Even vendors got into the spirit and asked the fairy godmother to bless their stalls so that they would sell everything that day.

Finding 'Sandy' for Annie

Annie is coming to the Crighton Theatre on July 23-August 8, 2010. But where can Annie find her dog Sandy? At the Montgomery County Animal Shelter - naturally. The Animal Shelter processes hundreds of dogs and cats every month. The shelter is staffed with volunteers who seek to help these animals find a home.

How can you help? Download the list of immediate needs. Bring items on this list directly to the shelter or when you come to the show. We will have a bin to collect items for the shelter during the run of the show. Perhaps you will be smitten with Sandy and volunteer to adopt a pet...

So who is this dog? Ginger will play Sandy. She's a labrador-airedale mix. She has a nice temperment but needs a lot of TLC. Currently Ginger is working with a trainer prior to fostering with one of the Annies. Meanwhile, the orphans that are looking for Sandy are practicing their songs. Take a sneak peak at the orphans.
