Internationally produced and currently recognized as the three most widely produced comedic playwrights in America - Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten - came to the Crighton for a visit.  These authors are as genuine as their writing.  What a gem!  STAGE RIGHT audiences may recall that our highly popular productions of CHRISTMAS BELLES and SOUTHERN HOSPITALITY presented last season were written by Jones, Hope and Wooten. Additionally, DEARLY BELOVED, which will be presented in April of this year, is also a Jones, Hope & Wooten play and is actually the first part of the hilarious trilogy of the Futrelle sisters of Fayro, Texas.

Look for more southern comedies from this trio to be presented at the Crighton.  Get your tickets online or call the Box Office at 936-441-7469 (SHOW).

Journey "under the sea" with Ariel and her aquatic friends in Disney's The Little Mermaid Jr., adapted from Disney's Broadway production and the motion picture (featuring the enormously popular Academy Award-winning music and delightfully charming book and lyrics). Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen's most beloved stories, Disney's The Little Mermaid Jr. is an enchanting look at the sacrifices we all make for love and acceptance. In a magical underwater kingdom, the beautiful young mermaid, Ariel, longs to leave her ocean home – and her fins – behind and live in the world above. But first, she'll have to defy her father, King Triton, make a deal with the evil sea witch, Ursula, and convince the handsome Prince Eric that she's the girl whose enchanting voice he's been seeking.

Playhouse 1960 presents The Little Mermaid (Junior edition) from Sept. 12-27, 2016!

Bravo Company held their showcase on Saturday , Nov. 7 at 2:30 PM.  You missed a great opportunity to see raw talent in the formation stage.  The younger kids did several montages together as a group while the older kids wrote and acted in their own original pieces.

Put "Ever After" scheduled at the end of May on your calendars.  This will be Bravo Company's spring play.  You will likely see kids like Ian (on the right) in "Ever After".  Ian was also in the summer show "Cheaper by the Dozen".
