SYNOPSIS

Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film, Shrek The Musical is a TONY Award-winning fairy tale adventure featuring all new songs from Jeanine Tesori (Thoroughly Modern Millie, Caroline or Change) and a sidesplitting book by David Lindsay-Abaire. Shrek brings all the beloved characters you know from the film to life on stage, and proves there's more to the story than meets the ears.

"Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek…” And thus begins the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking Donkey and a feisty princess who resists her rescue. Throw in a short tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude, and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you’ve got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there's one on hand...and his name is Shrek.

Shrek presents a treasure trove of creative opportunities including costumes, sets, puppets ( there is a fire-breathing dragon after all), and more! Irreverently fun for the whole family, Shrek proves that beauty is truly in the eye of the ogre.

Cast List for The Trip to Bountiful

Thank you all again for auditioning for The Trip to Bountiful. As I said previously, you ALL made my job casting this show very difficult. Everyone brought their 'A' game. The cast list is given below. If you were not cast in a role or the role you wanted it does not mean you didn't do a great job - everyone did! As a director, I must make a picture for the audience. All the pieces need to fit together. As an actor, I know it is very difficult to accept when we are not cast, believe me I know, but I hope you can appreciate that what you all did was great but it may not have fit with the others I had to choose from.

Characters
Carrie Watts.....Leona Hoegsberg
Ludie Watts.....Bill Giffen
Jessie Mae Watts.....Melody Montez
Thelma.....Cristy Campobella
Houston Ticket Man #1.....Jim Murph
Houston Ticket Man #2.....Riley O. Piddle
Harrison Ticket Man.....Tom Richard
Sheriff.....Craig Campobella

Bus station passengers- if anyone that auditioned and did not get a role would be interested in being a bus station passenger, please let me know. It would be minimal rehearsal - come to first read through, when we block that scene, and then 2 weeks prior to opening (we'll need to have you help with running crew as well for the other scenes).

First read is Sunday the 22rd at 6 pm.

SYNOPSIS

Living in an overcrowded three-room Houston apartment with her dutiful, yet melancholy son Ludie and his brittle, bossy wife Jessie Mae, elderly and frail Carrie Watts longs to visit her childhood home in the small Texas town of Bountiful before she
dies. Forced to leave the land where she grew up twenty years ago, her powerful memories sustain her as she dreams of making the trip back to reclaim her dignity and strength. The play follows the journey when one day, Carrie decides to take the trip back to Bountiful. Her journey, though trying, is one filled with faith, love and hope. Audiences will laugh at the familiar ‘family’ situations and ultimately have tears in their eyes, as Carrie does, when she realizes her dream.

CAST NOTES: Characters: 3 Women, 6 Men (No roles have been pre-cast)

Carrie Watts – Age 60+ An aging widow who longs to return to the country home of her youth, Bountiful. She is certain this change will carry her through her waning years. She’s feisty, indomitable and endearing. There is no doubt she will get exactly where she wants.

Ludie Watts – Age 30s to late 40s After working for a company for eight years, he became ill for two years and lost his savings. He has been working for six months, but still requires the assistance of his mother’s pension check. Residing in a small apartment with two women has equally taken its toll.

Jessie Mae Watts – Age 30s to late 40s She would love to be going out doing things for herself, but feels trapped taking care of her mother-in-law. Jessie Mae doesn’t dislike Carrie, just the behavior and dislike she feels from Carrie.

Thelma – Age 20-24 A new bride returning to her family home while she waits for her husband’s return from his duty overseas. Riding on the bus to Harrison, TX and their separate destinations, her acquaintance with Carrie provides the opportunity to hear why Carrie must go home.

Sheriff – Age 40-50s Small town sheriff. Responding to Carrie’s pleas, he helps her complete her pilgrimage to Bountiful.

Roy – Age 25-40 Not familiar with the Bountiful of Carrie’s memory, he shares time before daylight with Carrie as she continues her journey.

2 Ticket Masters – Age Open Exchange lines with Carrie and Ludie respectively at the Houston bus depot.

Passengers- various age and gender (most likely these will also be running crew)

Actors are requested to bring headshot and resume to the auditions if they have one. For more information, go to www.stage-right.org or contact the director at Carolyn.wong@stage-right.org

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!

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.
