Barefoot in the Park - Auditions

Auditions will be held for Barefoot in the Park on Dec. 4-5, 2011 at 7 PM at the historic Crighton Theatre.

Character Description
Corie Bratter - a newlywed, married only six days at the beginning of the play. She is
young, pretty, and full of enthusiasm for the future. Impulsive and fun-loving, she considers
herself a doer, not a watcher. Her impetuosity is not shared, at first, by her mother or
husband, and they are aghast when she cheers the crazy antics of Victor, a neighbor. Corie
eventually learns to appreciate dependability and quiet strength.

Paul Bratter - Corie’s husband, a twenty-six-year-old attorney in his first job. Both his dress
and his outlook are very conservative. Extremely proper and dignified, he always knows the
right thing to say. He is levelheaded and practical, and he keeps his emotions in check,
perhaps too much so. After Corie accuses him of lacking playfulness, he shows her that he,
too, is capable of walking barefoot in the park.

Ethel Banks - Corie’s mother. She is in her late forties. Although she is still pretty, she has
fallen out of step with the fashions. She lives alone in West Orange, New Jersey. Consciously
or unconsciously, she has adopted a narrow image of herself as someone with a sensitive
stomach, a bad back, and no need for romance. It takes a wild evening out with Victor for
Ethel to rediscover her carefree and spontaneous self.

Victor Velasco - the Bratters’ upstairs neighbor. Fifty-eight years old, he is a colorful
character. Although capable of looking positively natty in a double-breasted pinstriped suit, he
also wears Japanese kimonos and berets. He is vain, flamboyant, and without shame when it
comes to letting someone else pick up a tab. Married three times, he is a terrific flirt. He is
also a gourmet cook; Paul refers to him as the “Hungarian Duncan Hines.” There are signs
that Victor is beginning to slow down. After an exhilarating evening of his own creation, he
suffers a broken toe and an upset stomach.

Harry Pepper - a telephone repairman. He witnesses, to his mortification, a fight between
Corie and Paul.

Delivery Man – Non-speaking cameo role

A Christmas Story - Auditions

STAGE RIGHT of Texas announces auditions for their upcoming production of A CHRISTMAS STORY. Director Jim Bingham is looking for a large cast of all ages.

The cast requirements are for two men (ages 40 and older), two women (ages 35 and older), four boys (ages 9-12), one boy (age 5-7), and two girls (ages 9-12). Other children ages 5-12 and adults will be cast for various non-speaking roles. The planned rehearsals at this time are: Sundays through Thursdays from 7 to 10 p.m. to begin upon completion of casting. Actor call times are staggered with children rehearsing first and released early on school nights. All cast and crew are required to be present for tech week beginning Nov. 27th.

Auditions will be held at the Crighton Theatre rehearsal hall (enter at 117 Simonton) on Oct. 16 & 17 at 7 pm. Callback auditions may be held at the discretion of the director. Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. Sides can be emailed prior to the audition by request via info@stage-right.org . Contact the director at info@crightontheatre.org for questions about the auditions, the show or to volunteer to help backstage.

Christmas is a time of great expectations, especially through the eyes of a child. For nine-year-old Ralphie Parker that great expectation is a genuine Red Ryder 200 Shot Carbine Action Air Rifle. No self-respecting cowboy would be without one. Unfortunately, his mom, teacher and even the Santa Claus toiling away at Goldblatt's Department Store share the same reaction to his Christmas wish: "You'll shoot your eye out!" Based on the book by humorist Jean Shepherd and adapted for the stage by Philip Grecian the play has all the scenes you’ve come to love in the movie; the flagpole, the bunny suit, and the infamous lamp! A CHRISTMAS STORY will delight the whole family and fill you with the spirit of the season.

Show dates are Dec. 2-18 with Friday & Saturday performances at 8 pm and two Sunday matinees on Dec. 11 & 18 at 2 pm. Performances will be held at the historic Crighton Theatre at 234 N. Main in downtown Conroe.

STAGE RIGHT Announces Cast of Mama Won't Fly

Thank you to all those that came to audition for MAMA WON’T FLY. You were all so good it made my job very difficult! As I mentioned at callbacks I changed my mind about casting as few people as possible. As a result the character roles, especially for the men, are spread rather thin. I am a true believer that there are no small roles only – well, you fill in the blank. Here is the cast of the world premiere production of MAMA WON’T FLY. Below the cast list is the synopsis of the show that will appear on the back cover of the script.

Mama Won't Fly (World Premiere)


By Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, and Jamie Wooten.
Performances: Sept. 9-25, 2011
Auditions: June 12-13, 2011


An outrageously hilarious race against the clock begins when Savannah Sprunt Fairchild Honeycutt agrees to get her feisty mother all the way from Alabama to California in time for her brother’s wedding. Savannah’s problem: Mama won’t fly.

With only four days to make it to the ceremony, this determined daughter has no choice but to drive across country with her equally willful mother, Norleen Sprunt, in Mama’s vintage sedan. As Savannah steels herself for this hastily conceived road trip, another outrageous complication arises: the bubbly, over-eager bride-to-be arrives unannounced. Hayley Quinn, delighted to finally meet her future in-laws, is convinced travelling together to her wedding is the perfect way to bond. The folly of her decision quickly becomes apparent when the journey begins and comedic chaos ensues. Every conceivable – and inconceivable – mishap that can occur does, including the theft of their car and all their clothes, a near-fatal encounter at an underwear museum, the accidental homicide of an ancient Texas relative, a mad dash across the desert in a hijacked eighteen-wheeler and a riotous detour to Vegas that ends in a brawl with an ordained showgirl minister. As the misadventures multiply, the beleaguered trio rapidly develops the urge to ditch each other anywhere along the way. Eventually the race to get to the church on time takes its toll and the overwhelmed bride calls off the wedding. Rising above their age-old mother-daughter issues, Norleen and Savannah work together to get the nuptials back on track. In a surprising and heartwarming resolution, they forge an exciting new path for their own relationship and welcome Hayley into their delightfully wacky family.

This ferociously funny, family-friendly JONES HOPE WOOTEN COMEDY will have you laughing your way across the country and all the way down the aisle!

Despite protests from his mother that he'll shoot his eye out, Ralphie persists, unsuccessfully trying to enlist the assistance of both his teacher and Santa Claus.

Barefoot in the Park


By Neil Simon
Performances: Feb. 17- Mar. 4, 2012
Auditions: Dec. 4-5, 2011

This romantic comedy focuses on newlyweds, Corie and Paul, as they begin married life in a tiny 5th floor walkup apartment in a mid-Manhattan brownstone. Paul is a strait-laced attorney, Corie a far more spontaneous free spirit. The young couple must contend with a lack of heat, a skylight that leaks snow, several long flights of stairs, oddball neighbor Victor Velasco, and Corie's well-meaning mother. Adjusting to married life isn’t so easy! The first act of Barefoot dramatizes a making of a new life, and its second builds to a near-breakup of the marriage.

The Carol Burnett Show


By Contemporary Drama Service
Performances: Apr. 20-May 6, 2012
Auditions: By appointment

A variety show based on the sketches from the TV series "The Carol Burnett Show" with song and dance numbers reminiscent of "Vaudeville (Finally) Comes to the Crighton". Come and remember some of the famous sketches such as "As the Stomach Turns", (a parody of As the World Turns) and "Went with the Wind" (a parody of Gone with the Wind, featuring a scene with Burnett as Starlett O'Hara in the dress made from a window curtain, complete with the curtain rod), "Carol & Sis", "The Family" (which would later spin off into a show called Mama's Family), and "Stella Toddler."
