Opening Weekend for Hello Dolly

Over 1300 people came to opening weekend for Hello, Dolly! They were treated with a high energy, fast paced musical. Groups as large as 100 came for a shared experience. Despite the hot and cold weather all had a great time.

If you are interested, you can find magazine articles or production pictures of the show.

An additional matinee on the last weekend of the run has been added to accommodate demand. Get your tickets today!

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.

Auditions for The Elephant Man

Stage Right announces auditions for The Elephant Man on Jan 21-22, 2018 at the historic Crighton Theatre (7 PM). Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. Performances will be on Apr. 13-29, 2018.

The Elephant Man is based on the life of John Merrick, who lived in London during the latter part of the nineteenth century. A horribly deformed young man, victim of rare skin and bone diseases, he has become the star freak attraction in traveling side shows. Found abandoned and helpless, he is admitted to London's prestigious Whitechapel hospital. Under the care of celebrated young physician Frederick Treves, Merrick is introduced to London society and slowly evolves from an object of pity to an urbane and witty favorite of the aristocracy and literati only to be denied his ultimate dream, to become a man like any other.

With the help of the other girls in the Orphanage, Annie escapes to the wondrous world of NYC. In adventure after fun-filled adventure, Annie foils Miss Hannigan's evil machinations... and even befriends President Franklin Delano Roosevelt!

In this transcendently powerful new adaptation by Wendy Kesselman, Anne Frank emerges from history a living, lyrical, intensely gifted young girl, who confronts her rapidly changing life and the increasing horror of her time with astonishing honesty, wit, and determination. An impassioned drama about the lives of eight people hiding from the Nazis in a concealed storage attic, THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK captures the claustrophobic realities of their daily existence—their fear, their hope, their laughter, their grief. Each day of these two dark years, Anne's voice shines through: "When I write I shake off all my cares. But I want to achieve more than that. I want to be useful and bring enjoyment to all people, even those I've never met. I want to go on living even after my death!" This is a new adaptation for a new generation.

42nd Street

One of showbusiness’s most classic and beloved tales, 42nd Street tells the story of Peggy Sawyer, a talented young performer with stars in her eyes who gets her big break on Broadway.

Peggy arrives to New York City from her hometown of Allentown, Pennsylvania, armed with her tap shoes and big dreams. Peggy’s talent catches the eye of legendary Broadway director Julian Marsh, who gives her a spot in the chorus of Pretty Lady, his newest show. Pretty Lady stars Dorothy Brock, the classic Broadway diva, who takes an instant dislike to the new girl in the cast. When Dorothy is injured during the show’s previews, Pretty Lady looks like it will have to close, unless a new girl talented enough to lead the show can be found — someone like Peggy Sawyer!

The score is chock-full of Broadway standards, including “You’re Getting To Be A Habit With Me,” “Dames,” “We’re In the Money,” “Lullaby of Broadway,” “Shuffle Off to Buffalo” and “Forty-Second Street.”
