Over 600 patrons came to the opening weekend of Anything Goes. Critics claimed they had never seen that much dancing on the Crighton stage in 30+ years. Food, flowers, comedy, fantastic singing, tap dancing, and a chance to win a cruise! There is no better way to spend an evening. To see some of the production pictures click here.
Cast members from The Wizard of Oz were invited to perform at the CASA Child Advocates of Montgomery County 19th Annual CASA Speaks For Kids Gala. The live and silent auctions offered exclusive and exciting unique finds for the hundreds of attendees. By supporting CASA Child Advocates of Montgomery County, we joined the fight against child abuse and neglect in our community.
Stage Right loaned prop and set pieces from The Wizard of Oz to help decorate the hallway. Additionally, we donated prop pieces from the show for the silent auction.
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.
For more information about the cruise itself see the following article from the Houston Chronicle.

A 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. Her son eventually turns up, and drives her back to Houston.
