Rummage Sale This Saturday


Food! Music! Theatre memorabilia! Clothes, costumes, and more! Where else but Stage Right's 1st Annual Rummage Sale at 119 N. San Jacinto in Conroe across from the Assistance League from 8AM-2PM on Saturday, May 21, 2016. See you there!

Romeo and Harriet

Bravo Company presents this hilarious musical spoof puts the "shake" in Shakespeare! With the help of a group of quarreling chorus members - Oregano, Carpaccio, Risotto, Prosciutto, Antipasto, Pesto, Mayo and Romano - we get a deliciously funny spoof of Romeo and Juliet. Their comedic and intelligent commentary seasons the show with laughter galore so actors and audience alike won�t even realize they're learning about Shakespeare!

The stage is set in modern-day New York City, where clerks of the swanky Montague's Department store and the second-rate Capulet's Discount Mart meet in the street to trade insults. Words are their daggers, so watch out, you might die laughing! Naturally, the heirs to these two retail empires, Romeo and Harriet, fall in love, but don't think you know the rest...this musical has a happy ending! "Humph. Call yourself a tragedy," exclaims Oregano at the end of the show, disappointed to find no dead bodies. Nope, it's pure comedy with pie fights in place of duels, a nurse obsessed with paper cuts, Romeo dressed in a white leisure suit a la John Travolta and an outrageous parody of the most romantic scene in literature. A fun, eclectic collection of musical numbers underscores all this hilarity, including a number in iambic pentameter! It would be a real tragedy to miss out on this one!

See Romeo and Harriet at the historic Crighton Theatre on May 20-21, 2016!

Last Weekend for Rumors

Just one more weekend to experience the hilarity that makes Rumors! See the production pictures from DWC Photography or the promotional video that also includes the production pictures.

Characters:
Chris Gorman (F) - Chris is an attractive woman in her mid 30s. She is nervous
and neurotic. She recently quit smoking but quickly falls off the wagon. She will
be smoking prop cigarettes through most of the second act. Chris also has a few too
many vodka martinis and plays slightly drunk starting about midway through the show.
Chris does some physical comedy.
Ken Gorman (M) - Ken is Chris’ husband. He is in his 40s and is Charley’s attorney
and friend. Ken is pompous, serious, a know-it-all...when he can hear. About
midway through the first act, Ken has a slight accident with the shotgun. It goes off
next to his head and leaves him virtually deaf for a good part of the center section of
the show. Ken has to be shouted at, shouts in return and constantly mis-hears what is
being said to him.
Claire Ganz (F) - Claire is late 30s to early 40s. She is an unimpressed smartmouth
who is seemingly amused by everything that is going on. Not surprising considering
her husband...
Leonard “Lenny” Ganz (M) - Lenny is Claire’s husband and is also in his late
30s to early 40s. He is Charley’s accountant. Lenny is by far the most foul-mouthed,
outspoken member of the cast. He is also HILARIOUS. IMPORTANT NOTE: Lenny
has a bizarre three page monologue at the end of the show where he is posing as
“Charley” and tells his version of just what’s been going on around there. Lenny and
Claire have also had a car wreck on the way over and Lenny’s neck keeps locking up
on him.
Cookie Cusack (F) - Cookie is a flamboyant host of her own cooking show.
She is in her mid to late 40s, garish, a bit ditzy and will be expected to deliver quite
a bit of physical comedy. Cookie has a bad back...so bad that she carries a special
pillow with her everywhere. Her back is regulary going out with much screaming and
gyration. A couple of times Cookie is actually forced to crawl on and off the stage due
to her back ailments.
Ernie Cusack (M) - Ernie is Cookie’s husband and Charley’s analyst. He is in
his late 40s/early 50s. He is a somewhat quiet and calming presence in the midst of
the storm of confusion. Although he does lose it a couple of times. He helps Cookie
prepare the meal for the evening and is mistaken for the butler at one point.
Glenn Cooper (M) - Glenn is a candidate for the State Senate. He is in his
late 30s/early 40s and obviously quite handsome. The TV cameras love him. He is
constantly worried about his image and how involvement in the possible crimes being
committed all around him might impact his candidacy.
Cassie Cooper (F) - Cassie is Glenn’s wife. She is younger, probably early 30s,
very good looking and totally nuts. She and Glenn hate each other. She doesn’t want
to be there, she is constantly fi ghting with Glenn and she is constantly threatening divorce.
Cassie is a believer in the power of crystals. She also hides in the bathroom a
lot. At one point, to punish Glenn, Cassie tousles her hair and fl irts outrageously with
some of the other male guests. She also attacks Glenn with a cell phone (a 1988 cell
phone) off stage in a fit of rage.
Officer Ben Welch (M) - No nonsense cop in his 40s-50s. Has a couple of
smaller monologues.
Officer Connie Pudney (F) - Late 20s cop. Welch’s partner. Minimal lines.

STAGE RIGHT Announces Date Change: Auditions for The Producers Dec. 6 & 7

STAGE RIGHT of Texas, resident theatre company at the historic Crighton Theatre, announces auditions for the musical The Producers Dec. 6 & 7 at 7 pm. The dates have been changed from when originally announced. The show is directed by Manny Cafeo.

Plot Summary:

A down-on-his-luck Broadway producer and his mild-mannered accountant come up with a scheme to produce the most notorious flop in history thereby bilking their backers (all "little old ladies") out of millions of dollars. Only one thing goes awry: the show is a smash hit! The antics of Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom as they maneuver their way fecklessly through finding a show (the gloriously offensive "Springtime For Hitler"), hiring a director, raising the money and finally going to prison for their misdeeds is a lesson in broad comic construction. At the core of the insanely funny adventure is a poignant emotional journey of two very different men who become friends. – Music Theatre International

Farce Of Nature

By Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, and Jamie Wooten
Performances: April 14-30. 2017
Auditions: Feb 10-11, 2017 (tentative)


The non-stop hilarity of this Southern-fried farce highlights one day in the life of the Wilburn family of Mayhew, Arkansas. Meet D. Gene Wilburn, the owner and proprietor of The Reel 'Em Inn, the finest little fishing lodge in the Ozarks. Well, it used to be, but lately business is down, tourists are few, and the lone guest who's just checked in - an extremely jittery Carmine DeLuca from Chicago - is only there due to a location shift in the Witness Protection Program. Doesn't anybody just want to fish anymore? Certainly not D. Gene's frustrated wife, Wanelle, who's fed up with their lackluster romantic life. She's taken drastic steps to improve it through hypnotic suggestion and for the life of him, D. Gene cannot understand why his pants keep falling down. D. Gene's feisty sister, Maxie, has her own problems, chief among them battling ageism to resume her career in law enforcement. She' s determined to prove her worth by keeping Carmine DeLuca alive through the weekend - a task that's going to prove to be much harder than she bargained for since she keeps losing both her gun and the bullets. And she never anticipated the gangster Camine's been dodging for the last five years, Sonny Barbosa, is about to walk through the door, in hot pursuit of his sexy wife, Lola. Seems the headstong Lola has driven hundreds of miles to the lodge to follow her boytoy, D. Gene and Wanelle's son, Ty. But Lola meets her match in Ty's seemingly innocent girlfriend, Jenna, whose patience has reached the breaking point after months of waiting for Ty to come home.

In the deliciously funny romp that ensues, they all hide, lie, disguise themselves, cross-dress, and slam doors chasing one another while trying to figure out the source of an increasingly awful stench. By then it's too late and the lodge is surrounded by vicious critters and hungry varmints that have followed the odor down from the hills. Yet by the delightfully chaotic climax of this one outrageous day, love blossoms, truths are revealed and the lives of all - family, guests, and gangsters alike - change in incredible and surprising ways. This side-splittingly funny Jones Hope Wooten comedy is guaranteed to win your audiences over, hook, line, and sinker!
