Anything Goes

See musical comedy as you have never seen before! The age-old tale of Boy-Meets-Girl and the complications which ensue intrigue every audience, and no musical puts it on stage better than ANYTHING GOES. This Tony awarding winning show is an amusing story wrapped around one of Cole Porter's magical scores.

Terrific Cole Porter songs include It's De-Lovely, Friendship, I Get A Kick Out Of You, All Through The Night, Anything Goes, You're The Top and Blow, Gabriel, Blow. It's a wonder that all the romances are sorted out and disaster is averted aboard the magical ship where ANYTHING GOES!

Anything Goes Cruise

Win a cruise to Mexico, Grand Cayman, and Jamaica! For the next three shows we will be raffling a cruise to Mexico departing from the port of Galveston! Travel to a Caribbean island perched atop a coral reef: Cozumel. Swim with the dolphins or spend the day shopping onshore!

Next is Grand Cayman - a group of three magnificent tropical islands Christopher Columbus called "Las Tortugas" (the turtles) for the sea creatures he found in the ocean water. Among other attractions, visitors to the island will enjoy learning about the turtles, exploring Seven-Mile Beach and enjoying the undersea world.

Last stop is Jamaica where beachcomers can spend time on the white sands and enjoy the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean. Take a leasurely ride in a glass bottom boat and see underwater life without having to snorkel or scuba dive. Visit the spectacular Dunn's River Falls near Ocho Rios, where you can climb 600 feet up from the base of the falls or retreat to the beach where the rushing water exits into the ocean.

This eight day, seven night cruise will be awarded to one lucky couple on the last performance of the season (Hairspray - July 27, 2014). Tickets are $5 each or five tickets for $20. You can buy tickets during intermission or purchase tickets online. Proceeds will support future Stage Right shows at the Crighton.

Los Lonely Boys

Hailing from San Angelo, TX, Los Lonely Boys are a sibling trio whose music draws equally from rock, blues, Tex-Mex, conjunto, and tejano. The band consists of three brothers: Henry (guitar, vocals), Jojo (bass, vocals), and Ringo (drums, vocals) Garza. They follow the tradition of their father, Ringo Garza, Sr., who formed a band with his brothers called the Falcones. The family relocated to Nashville in the 1990s, and gradually the sons emerged as a group separate from their father. Their debut single, "Heaven," was a number one hit on the Billboard adult contemporary chart and reached the Top 40 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2004.
