Always, Patsy Cline

Shoot to Kill Productions brings this classic to life! The show is based on a true story about Cline's friendship with a fan from Houston named Louise Seger. She befriended the star in a Texas honky-tonk in 1961 and continued a correspondence with Cline until her death.

The play, complete with down home country humor, true emotion and even some audience participation, includes many of Patsy's unforgettable hits such as Crazy, I Fall to Pieces, Sweet Dreams and Waking After Midnight...27 songs in all. The show's title was inspired by Cline's letters to Louise Seger, which were consistently signed "Love ALWAYS... Patsy Cline."

The role of Louise will be played by Carolyn Wong on June 9 (matinee), June 10 and 16th (evening) with LaStelle McVey performing Louise at the other 5 performances.

Call the Box Office at 936-441-7469 to see this show from June 7-17, 2012.

One Night with Elvis

World-renowned Elvis Presley tribute artist Donny Edwards will bring his act showcasing the King of Rock n Roll's entire career to Conroe, TX for a one night only show on March 18th at 7 p.m. at the historic Crighton Theatre. The show also features Roy Orbison tribute artist Wayne King and the ultimate tribute band 'Fever'.

For Edwards, like many Elvis fans, his love of the King is a lifelong affair. "Ever since I was a kid I just remember listening to him and loving listening to him," Edwards said. "My parents said that when I was 2 years old they would play Elvis records and I would shake my leg kind of like him." Edwards spent much of his teen years and early adulthood being compared to Elvis, but it was in 2002, when he won an Elvis look-alike contest in Lake Jackson, that he began to wonder if it could be a career. He has performed around the United States and the world performing approximately 200 shows a year.

Don't miss Donny at the Crighton on June 22, 2012 at 7 PM.

Texas Tornados

The initial combination of musicians of the Texas Tornados happened almost by chance at a concert performance of mutual acquaintances. After Freddy Fender, Flaco Jimenez, Augie Meyers, and Doug Sahm performed in front of a San Francisco audience, they all knew the genuine bond they felt in their music could probably be taken to another level. After they initially performed as the Tex-Mex Revue, they took the title Texas Tornados, after Sahm's song and album of that name.

Cinderella

The timeless enchantment of a magical fairy tale is reborn with the Rodgers and Hammerstein hallmarks of originality, charm and elegance. Originally presented on television in 1957 starring Julie Andrews, Rodgers and Hammerstein's CINDERELLA was the most widely viewed program in the history of the medium. Its recreation in 1965 starring Lesley Ann Warren was no less successful in transporting a new generation to the miraculous kingdom of dreams-come-true, and so was a second remake in 1997, which starred Brandy as Cinderella and Whitney Houston as her Fairy Godmother. As adapted for the stage, with great warmth and more than a touch of hilarity, the hearts of children and adults alike still soar when the slipper fits.

Afte each matinee there will be a tea party with Cinderella and the Prince. Seating is limited. Sign up with the Box Office when you get your matinee tickets. You can read more about Cinderella, her tea party, and other promotional events in the June Dockline Magazine.

We will be collecting funds for Children's Safe Harbor during the musical. Bring your donation and don't miss Cinderella at the Crighton from July 13-29, 2012.

The Psychic

Theatre Subsurbia presents The Psychic - a murder mystery (of sorts). Adam Webster, a down-on-his- luck writer, in desperation to make the rent, has put a sign in his apartment window, "Psychic Readings $25". The characters it draws in lead into a tangled murder mystery of sorts in this hilarious original comedy.

"A delightful murder mystery adventure...many humorous, suspenseful, unexpected twists and turns...Bobrick shows his innate ability with this play's sharp wit and impeccable comedic timing...audiences...will savor the suspense and surprise that The Psychic delivers." - Tolucan Times

Winner of the 2011 Edgar Award from the Mystery Writers of America for Best Mystery Play of 2010. See the Psychic from June 1 to June 30th.

Katz's Express

Katz's has been a Texas institution for more than 30 years. We opened our first authentic, New York deli in Austin, Texas, in 1979. And it didn't take long for our classic New York cuisine to win the hearts of cowboy country. Before we knew it, lines were out the door and around the block. People couldn't get enough of our signature dishes: the towering Reuben, the tart and crispy fried pickles, the rich and creamy Cheesecake Shake. We got so busy, we stayed open 24 hours. And that's where we got our saying, "Katz's Never Kloses."

Over time, we moved to Houston and opened both our Montrose and Woodlands locations. But we always stayed true to our original mission: to provide the freshest, most authentic New York deli cuisine, painstakingly prepared according to generations-old family recipes. We hope you'll come see us soon at either location, and dine on the very best deli food this side of Manhattan.
