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!

Philip Barry’s romantic comedy The Philadelphia Story opens May 20th at Clear Creek Community Theatre (CCCT). Originally made famous by Katherine Hepburn, It tells the story of Philadelphia heiress and socialite Tracy Lord. After getting a divorce from C. K. Dexter Haven, she prepares to marry again. However, in the days before her wedding, Haven and a reporter, posing as her brother’s friend, show up at her doorstep. From there, Tracy is forced to choose among her past love, her present love, and her new love. Although this mad-cap high society comedy was a smash hit on Broadway, most people remember the Oscar-winning film version which starred Katherine Hepburn, Cary Grant and Jimmy Stewart. Director Matthew Phillips promises his show will leave you happy and even a little romantic, too. “The Philadelphia Story” runs May 20 – June 5 with performances at 8pm on Fridays and Saturdays and 2:30pm on Sundays. Tickets are $13-15. Group rates are available. Tickets may be purchased online at www.clearcreekcommunitytheatre.com or by calling the box office at 281-335-5228.

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).

Miracle on South Division Street PDF Print E-mail

Theatre Suburbia, Houston's oldest community theatre, presents Miracle on South Division Street.

"Miracle on South Division Street" is the story of the Nowak family, living amidst the urban rubble of Buffalo, NY’s East Side. Maybe the neighborhood is depressed, but not Clara, the family matriarch. She happily runs her soup kitchen and tends to the family heirloom – a twenty-foot shrine to the Blessed Mother which adjoins the house. This neighborhood beacon of faith commemorates the day in 1942 when the Blessed Virgin Mary materialized in her father’s barber shop! When the play opens, a family meeting is in progress. Daughter Ruth divulges her plan to finally “go public” with the family miracle by creating a one-woman play about the sacred event. But during the course of the meeting, the entire family’s faith is shaken to the very core when a deathbed confession causes the family legend to unravel. The results are heartfelt and hilarious.

Performances are on Apr 15 - May 14, 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".
