Mama Won't Fly PDF Print E-mail

​"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 cross-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 that 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!" The play made its premiere at the Crighton Theatre. It can be seen at Huntsville Community Theatre from March 31-April 9, 2017.

A hilarious romp which pulls the rug out from underneath the stuffy denizens of a private country club. Filled with mistaken identities, slamming doors, and over-the-top romantic shenanigans, it’s a furiously paced comedy that recalls the Marx Brothers’ classics. A charmingly madcap adventure about love, life, and man’s eternal love affair with… golf. Performances are at Clear Creek Community Theatre from April 7– 23, 2017.

 
2016 in Review PDF Print E-mail

Are you thriving or surviving?  That was the question our pastor asked us.  It depends.  For 2016, it was a banner year for Stage Right.  Record attendance (15,500+), record profits, rehearsal space, and more.

Unfortunately, for many of our theatre friends it was not the case.  We saw the loss of Texas Repertory Theatre (north Houston) and Contemporary Theatre of Dallas this year.  We are saddened when any non-profit but especially an arts group has to close its tent.

Our hope for 2017 is a better year for the arts.  Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

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".

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).
