The Lone Star Love Potion (comedy) - ​"Mr. Stancliffe, the owner of a vast fortune, and a two hundred thousand acre Texas ranch has died. His long time butler, Jarvis, and the maid, Melody, along with Mr. Stancliffe’s niece and only living relative Patrice, are there for the reading of the will by the family lawyer, Mr. Oakfield. Strangely, a Miss Tammy-Jo Harper, from the neighboring ranch, has also been invited! As expected, Patrice inherits the estate, with one clause, Jarvis may live out his life on the ranch, and Patrice may not sell it without Jarvis’s permission. After the presentation of the will, a Mary Lou Winston unexpectedly arrives. She is a dowdy ornithologist, (or is she?), who is doing research for her masters on woodpecker preservation. She requests to spend the night at the ranch, as her campsite has been rained out. Jarvis, has one other surprise for Patrice. Acting on instructions from Mr. Stancliffe, he produces from the safe a formula, and a sample of what appears to be a love potion. Mr. Stancliffe wills 25% of the shares to Patrice, 25% to Michael, and 50% to Jarvis. But this is a love potion with a difference. Made from the bark of the Brazilian walnut tree from "Amazonia," it does not affect the person who drinks it. Rather, this powerful aphrodisiac causes them to give off an almost imperceptible odor, which affects the vomeronasal organ of the opposite sex, with devastating effect. Can it really work? It has the potential to be worth billions. Before long everyone is testing it with hilarious results. The audience, at first convinced that it works, is then persuaded it doesn’t, and is finally left in doubt about both theories. Through all of this confusion, Michael and Patrice connive to acquire the rights to the love potion from Jarvis, by trading his shares for the forty million dollar ranch. !" See The Lone Star Love Potion at Huntsville Community Theatre from Nov. 10-19, 2017.

"I HAVE endeavored in this Ghostly little book, to raise the Ghost of an Idea, which shall not put my readers out of humour with themselves, with each other, with the season, or with me. May it haunt their houses pleasantly, and no one wish to lay it ~ Their faithful Friend and Servant, C.D." With this brief preface, Charles Dickens sets the stage for his classic tale where miser Ebenezer Scrooge is visited on Christmas Eve by three magical spirits who take him on a journey through his painful past, gloomy present, and possibly fatal future as he learns how his actions have affected those around him. A Christmas Carol instills a powerful message about redemption and the spirit of the holiday season. Adapted from the original story by A. Adams.

Clear Creek Community Theatre presents this classic from Dec. 1-17, 2017

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.
