Auditions for The Elephant Man

Stage Right announces auditions for The Elephant Man on January 21-22, 2018 (updated) at the historic Crighton Theatre at 7 PM.

The Elephant Man is based on the life of John Merrick, who lived in London during the latter part of the nineteenth century. A horribly deformed young man, victim of rare skin and bone diseases, he has become the star freak attraction in traveling side shows. Found abandoned and helpless, he is admitted to London's prestigious Whitechapel hospital. Under the care of celebrated young physician Frederick Treves, Merrick is introduced to London society and slowly evolves from an object of pity to an urbane and witty favorite of the aristocracy and literati only to be denied his ultimate dream, to become a man like any other.

For more information see the website audition notice. Performances are from April 13-29, 2018!

Hello Dolly

Hello, Dolly! is a musical filled with charisma and with heart. Matchmaker Dolly Levi is a widow, a matchmaker, and also a professional meddler - but everything changes when she decides that the next match she needs to make is to find someone for herself. Along the way she also succeeds in matching the young and beautiful Irene Molloy with Vandergelder's head clerk, Cornelius Hackl; Cornelius's assistant Barnaby Tucker with Mrs. Molloy's loop assistant, Minnie Fay; and the struggling artist Ambrose Kemper with Mr. Vandergelder's weeping niece, Ermengarde.

Set in New York City at the turn-of-the-century, Hello-Dolly! is boisterous and charming from start to finish. Hello, Dolly! features such memorable songs as "Before the Parade Passes By," "It Only Takes a Moment," "Put on Your Sunday Clothes," and - of course - the title number, "Hello, Dolly!"

Performances are from Feb. 9-25, 2018!

Harry's Dream

Thanks to the American Heritage Girls who joined us on a free tour of the Crighton!

A typical tour begins with a 20 minute movie made especially for the Rising Stars and Legends Festival in 2017. The short documentary is about the founder of the theatre - former Mayor Harry M. Crighton. During the process of making the documentary we were able to find materials not previously discovered or well known. After the short movie we will take a walking tour around the Crighton which should last about 15-20 minutes. The tour can be customized to meet any interests or educational requirements.

Call us at the Box Office at 936-441-7469 or contact Steve to book a group or individual tour.
