Peter and Wendy

MCPAS and Missoula Children's Theatre bring you Peter and Wendy on October 8.

When Captain Hook sends his right hand man Smee on a quest to capture Peter Pan, it's seemingly business as usual...at first. Little does Hook realize what fantastic adventures await him and his pirate posse in their search for the elusive Peter Pan. Mistaken identities, ever-morphing clouds, a classy crocodile, some very lost boys, ad a fickle shadow all add to the mayhem. Meanwhile, Mr. and Mrs. Darling embark on a quest of their own and find themselves trekking everywhere from Hawaii to the North Pole in search of their three missing children. With help from the earth-friendly Neverlanders, exotic Neverland creatures, and faithful Tinker Bell, the Darling children are found, disputes are ultimately resolved, and everyone - including Captain Hook - finds a place where they truly belong.

Auditions will be on Monday, Oct. 3 at 4:30 PM with a performance on Saturday, October 8, 2016 at 7 PM.

Miracle on 34th Street

Kringle proves to be such a hit that he is soon appearing regularly at the chain's main store in midtown Manhattan. 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, more importantly, his authenticity.

Addams Family - The Musical

In the kooky, upside-down world of the Addams Family, to be sad is to be happy, to feel pain is to feel joy, and death and suffering are the stuff of their dreams. Nonetheless, this quirky family still has to deal with many of the same challenges faced by any other family, and the spookiest nightmare faced by every family creates the focus Lippa, Brickman, and Elice's musical: the Addams kids are growing up. The Addamses have lived by their unique values for hundreds of years and Gomez and Morticia, the patriarch and matriarch of the clan, would be only too happy to continue living that way.

Their dark, macabre, beloved daughter Wednesday, however, is now an eighteen year-old young woman who is ready for a life of her own. She has fallen in love with Lucas Beineke, a sweet, smart boy from a normal, respectable Ohio family - the most un-Addams sounding person one could be! And to make matters worse, she has invited the Beinekes to their home for dinner. In one fateful, hilarious night, secrets are disclosed, relationships are tested, and the Addams family must face up to the one horrible thing they've managed to avoid for generations: change.

Performances are on Oct. 21-Nov. 6, 2016! Dress up and join us in the fun!

As we started to collect stories and memorabilia for the Crighton Theatre History Project we realized we were starting to collect stories about more than just the early days of the Crighton.

At first the project began as an outgrowth of junior high school requirements to interview a veteran.  The effort has evolved into a part of the community effort to record stories from our veterans before their stories are lost.  For instance, the Veterans Museum of Texas collects memorabilia and stories.

If you are interested in the stories of our veterans, find out more below.

The historic Crighton Theatre is celebrating its 80th birthday. In honor of the 80th anniversary STAGE RIGHT - in cooperation with the Crighton Theatre Foundation and the Heritage Museum of Montgomery County - has started gathering pictures, posters, stories, documents, and other memorabilia that chronicle the diversity and richness of the Crighton theatre history.

The purpose of the project is to document and save the history of the Crighton Theatre for future generations. STAGE RIGHT will do this by:

  • Collecting and scanning pictures of events and people
  • Transcribing stories and memories
  • Photographing artifacts, playbills, posters, and other physical objects related to the Crighton
  • Creating a video and book dedicated to the history of the Crighton

A living history is being prepared and proceeds will fund restorations for the theater built in the 1930’s.
