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!

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 (tentative): April 26-27, 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). fBased 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.

In 1961 when Cline went to Houston for a show, Seger and her buddies arrived about an hour-and-a-half early and, by coincidence, met Cline who was traveling alone. The two women struck up a friendship that was to culminate in Cline spending the night at Seger's house--a friendship that lasted until Cline's untimely death in a plane crash in 1963.

The relationship, which began as fan worship evolved into one of mutual respect. It is the kind of relationship that many fans would like to have with their heroes.

Over a pot of strong coffee, the two women chatted about their common concerns. When Cline finally left for Dallas, her next job, the two women had exchanged addresses and telephone numbers. Seger never expected to hear from Cline again, but soon after she left, Seger received the first of many letters and phone calls from Cline. The pen-pal relationship provides much of the plot of the show.

The play focuses on the fateful evening at Houston's Esquire Ballroom when Seger hears of Cline's death in a plane crash. Seger supplies a narrative while Cline floats in and out of the set singing tunes that made her famous--Anytime, Walkin' After Midnight, She's Got You, Sweet Dreams, and Crazy--to name a few.

On Golden Pond

by Ernest Thompson
Audition Dates (tentative): July 12-13, 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.
