For a town that just had a Patsy Cline musical and an Elvis impersonator, are people ready for another Southern styled show? The answer is a resounding YES based on the laughter from the crowd and the critics.

The writers Jones, Hope, and Wooten also wrote the wildly successful Crighton holiday show CHRISTMAS BELLES. Their speciality is southern comedies that are family friendly. Jamie Wooten wrote many of the "Golden Girl" TV episodes.

This is the third episode of the trilogy about the Futrelle sisters in the small town of Fayro, Texas. The sisters must find way to save their town from extinction when the local Super Smart Mart goes out of business. Between the Civil War re-enactment, an out-of-control petting zoo, and a beauty contest turned into a wrestling match, be prepared to laugh your troubles away! Catch the last weekend at the historic Crighton Theatre before the laughter ends! Performances are at 8 PM on Friday and Saturday (May 1-2, 2009) and Sunday at 2 PM (May 3, 2009). Bring you friends and have a great time!

Guy Clark Visits His 'Home'

The Sounds of Texas presents Guy Clark in concert on Saturday, May 9, 2009. Guy came to town when another show was onstage at the Crighton. No problem. A good singer can perform anywhere, anytime. He took up his guitar in front of the set built for another production and said without missing a beat, "Welcome to my home," and started playing.

Songwriting legend Guy Clark doesn't merely compose songs; he projects images and characters with the kind of hands-on care and respect of a literary master. Clark works slowly and with strict attention to detail, and has produced an impressive collection of timeless gems, leaving very little waste behind. The emotional level of his work, as well as the admiration and esteem of his peers, consistently transcends sales figures and musical genres. Using everyday language to construct extraordinary songs for more than 35 years, Clark continues to be the type of songwriter whom young artists study and seasoned writers, as well discriminating listeners, revere.

The Shirelles in Concert

The Montgomery County Performing Arts Society presents The Shirelles on Saturday, May 16, 2009.

The Shirelles were one of the earliest and most memorable girl groups from the late Fifties and early Sixties. John Lennon proclaimed The Shirelles as his favorite group in the early days of Beatlemania.

With their innocent, unblemished vocal style, The Shirelles project a "girl next door" image, and their songs about young love and its travails appeal to all generations of fans. Moreover, The Shirelles' material and production are uniformly excellent, and transcend the glory years of the early Sixties. It's no wonder that The Shirelles were inducted into The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1996, and are still going strong today with The Shirelles 50th Anniversary Tour!
