If anyone thinks that you "just do theatre", think again. Thanks to the collaboration of three non-profits - Operation Pets Alive, Cloud Nine Rescue, and the 3700+ patrons who came to see Legally Blonde the Musical - Stage Right was able to fund a flight to take 41 dogs to new homes. Without this funding no flight this month would have left Conroe. See the youtube video that celebrates this achievement. What we can do together is amazing!
STAGE RIGHT of Texas, resident theatre company at the historic Crighton Theatre in downtown Conroe, announces auditions for a repertory troupe for community outreach work. We seek performers of all ages (6+) to perform at senior centers, rehabilitation facilities, outdoor festivals, parades, and other promotional events. Classes will be held on Wednesday and Thursday during the school year from 5 – 6:30 pm. Emphasis will be on vocal technique, acting, improv, musical theatre dance and technical theatre – you’ll learn how to think fast on your feet!. Tuition will be $100/month with a production fee to be assessed later in the semester if needed.
Why now? We have a commitment to reach out to Montgomery County residents who cannot come to the Crighton. We aim to provide entertainment to those that can’t make it to the theatre and to provide advanced training to area youth and adults to help them sharpen and enhance their performance skills.
Auditions are on August 10, 2016 from 11AM-1 PM at the Crighton Theatre. Everyone should pick a song that showcases their voice and theatrical talents. The song should be about 1 min to 1:30 in length. Note: You do not have to start at the beginning of a song; you may start in the middle but please have the music ready at that part in which you would like to begin. Everyone will learn a short dance combination as well at these auditions. We want to see how fast the auditioner is able to pick up choreography and perform it within a short amount of time. We are not expecting perfection or a show-ready performance. Everyone will also go thru a quick improv game as well at the audition. We want to see how quickly you think on your feet and if able to portray a character without being handed a script.
Contact Sara Preisler for more information.
Auditions and classes will be held at the historic Crighton Theatre at 234 N. Main in downtown Conroe. More information about STAGE RIGHT can be found on our website..

Over 3700 people came to see Legally Blonde. This makes it the third highest attended show after Shrek the Musical and Singin' in the Rain. Even better, we were able to raise over $4500 dollars for Operation Pets Alive. Stage Right will get their own flight for life!
After the show the cast sang (what else) to video karaoke with the biggest "TV" around - the 24 foot screen on the stage of the Crighton theatre. While the cast is going many separate ways, they made this a summer to remember. Now on to the 2016-2017 season of Fantasy!
Thanks for all who auditioned for Blithe Spirit. Your talent was amazing!

Almost 1300 patrons came to see Legally Blonde this weekend. We have been surprised at the appeal of the show across all age ranges. While it is definitely not a show for everyone, the high energy songs and fast paced dialogue make for a fun time! Thanks to all the large groups that came for a fun, shared experience.
We have also raised $2500 to date for Operation Pets Alive. At this pace we should be able to fund our own flight for life for a set of rescue dogs needing a home! Help us to reach that goal!
It is with deep sorrow that we note the passing of Larry Ransberger. He was a fixture in the greater Houston theatre community. While he was instrumental during the growth of Playhouse 1960 for the past 20 years, he also was one of the first from the Houston theatres to join us in our efforts to make the greater Houston theatre community a more kind, cooperative environment. He helped us re-create No Time for Sergeants at the historic Crighton and co-produced Always, Patsy Cline when we took the show on tour.
His memorial will be held at Klein Funeral Home at 2 pm Saturday, July 9, 2016 at Klein Funeral Home Chapel, 9719 Wortham Blvd, Houston, Texas 77065
Don't Miss Legally Blonde the Musical! 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! Join over 1000 patrons who are laughing and dancing with us on opening weekend! You may like our version so much you will stop listening to the Broadway or London versions!
During the run of Legally Blonde we will be collecting donations for Operation Pets Alive! Performances are on July 8-24, 2016. Help us to save animals and have a great time!

Blithe Spirit, arguably Noël Coward's biggest hit and most beloved comedy, centers on the wealthy and skeptical novelist Charles Condomine who invites self-proclaimed medium Madame Arcati to his home for a séance. He is hoping to gather material for a new book and to expose her as a fraud. To witness this event, Charles and his second wife, Ruth, invite the skeptical Dr. Bradman and his anxious-to-believe wife, Violet. When the hapless psychic accidentally summons the spirit of Condomine's late wife, Elvira, things quickly spiral out of control and his home and life are turned into a shambles as his wife's ghost torments both himself and his new bride, Ruth.
