Miracle on 34th Street

Join the 1350 patrons who played in the snow with the cast of Miracle on 34th Street on the first weekend! See the production pictures thanks to Dave Clements of DWC Photography in the gallery.

In this Christmas classic, an old man going by the name of Kris Kringle fills in for an intoxicated Santa in Macy's annual Thanksgiving Day parade. Kringle is so believeable that he is soon appearing regularly at the chain's main store. When Kringle surprises customers and employees alike by claiming that he really is Santa Claus, it leads to a court case to determine his mental health and his authenticity.

Performance Dates: Dec. 2-18, 2016. Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 P.M. Sunday matinees at 2:00 P.M.

Please bring personal care products for the Salvation Army!

Jammin' for Rett's Syndrome

Cortney, daughter of Katy singer/songwriter Kevin Black, lost her baffle with Rett syndrome at the age of 16. Since that time. Clint and Kevin have devoted much of their time and effort to support the International Rett Syndrome Foundation Conroe will host the a benefit concert at the historic Crighton Theatre, featuring Clint and Kevin Black. Friends of Clint and Kevin will join them on stage to help with this benefit concert. Clint is the Chairman of the International Rett Syndrome Foundations Research to Reality campaign to raise funds to find treatments and a cure for Rett syndrome.

Clint says, "Watching my brother and his family suffer through [the effects of Rett], of course had a huge impact. Once I saw Kevin getting out there and working on the fundraising and seeing his dedication, It became a passion of mine to support him and the cause."

Don't miss this benefit event on Jan. 14, 2017 at the Crighton!

Farce of Nature

The non-stop hilarity of this Southern-fried farce highlights one day in the life of the Wilburn family of Mayhew, Arkansas. Meet D. Gene Wilburn, the owner and proprietor of The Reel 'Em Inn, the finest little fishing lodge in the Ozarks. Well, it used to be, but lately business is down, tourists are few, and the lone guest who's just checked in - an extremely jittery Carmine DeLuca from Chicago - is only there due to a location shift in the Witness Protection Program.

In the deliciously funny romp that ensues, they all hide, lie, disguise themselves, cross-dress, and slam doors chasing one another while trying to figure out the source of an increasingly awful stench. Yet by the delightfully chaotic climax of this one outrageous day, love blossoms, truths are revealed and the lives of all - family, guests, and gangsters alike - change in incredible and surprising ways. This side-splittingly funny Jones Hope Wooten comedy is guaranteed to win your audiences over, hook, line, and sinker!

Performances are on April 14-30, 2017!
