ABOUT Stage Right Of Texas
STAGE RIGHT OF TEXAS IS THE RESIDENT THEATRE COMPANY AT THE HISTORIC CRIGHTON THEATRE IN DOWNTOWN CONROE. WE ARE A 501C3 NON-PROFIT COMMUNITY THEATRE.
Stage Right of Texas currently produces six shows a year.
IN THE FALL OF 2008, a group of friends gathered around Steve and Carolyn Wong’s dining room table to discuss the possibility of founding a new theater company in Conroe. The group was concerned about the fate of the Crighton Theatre, which opened in 1935 and is one of only about 10 extant theaters of its vintage in Texas. The friends worried that, without a steady source of income from a resident theater company, the Crighton—so magnificently restored in 1978—would once again fall into disrepair.
The result of this collaborative effort was STAGE RIGHT, a volunteer theater company that delights local residents with six productions each year, funneling more than $100,000 per year toward the Crighton’s upkeep. (RIGHT is an acronym for Respect, Inspire, Growth, Heal and Treasure.)
One way the organization serves others is through its educational wing, Bravo Company, which offers classes to children and teenagers.
