Robin Hood: The Courtship of Allan A'Dale

All the joy, love, adventure and danger associated with the outlaw Robin Hood are found in this romantic coming-of-age adventure story. Set sometime in the middle of Robin Hood's infamous career, plot elements are taken from several of the traditional Robin Hood stories. This musical is filled with humor, swordfights, hidden identities, and even a group of singing nuns!

Genevieve, the duke's daughter, is dreaming with her ladies in waiting about the perfect man in "If I Marry." Her father has promised her hand in marriage to Rodric, the Sheriff of Nottingham, a mismatch he will announce at a feast. Robin Hood, visiting Nottingham in disguise on market day, manages an invitation. He tells Maid Marian and the other Merry Outlaws of Sherwood Forest his plan to attend the feast. Allan A'Dale, the young minstrel, begs for the opportunity to prove himself a worthy outlaw by going along, and Robin consents, at the urging of Maid Marian.

Will Allan A'Dale proves his worth? Join us at the Crighton for comedy, romance, and music! Performance dates for this musical are August 7-10, 2014!

The Dixie Swim Club

Five Southern women, whose friendships began many years ago on their college swim team, set aside a long weekend every August to recharge those relationships. Free from husbands, kids and jobs, they meet at the same beach cottage on North Carolina's Outer Banks to catch up, laugh and meddle in each other's lives. The Dixie Swim Club focuses on four of those weekends and spans a period of thirty-three years.

As their lives unfold and the years pass, these women increasingly rely on one another, through advice and raucous repartee, to get through the challenges (men, sex, marriage, parenting, divorce, aging) that life flings at them. And when fate throws a wrench into one of their lives in the second act, these friends, proving the enduring power of 'teamwork', rally 'round their own with the strength and love that takes this comedy in a poignant and surprising direction. 'The Dixie Swim Club' is the story of these five unforgettable women - a hilarious and touching comedy about friendships that last forever.

Performance dates for this comedy are Sept 5-21, 2014!

Aladdin

For Aladdin it's not easy to find a magic lamp but it's even harder to get a date! It's a swirling sandstorm of famous Arabian Tales from Ali Baba to Scheherazade and even Sinbad the Sailor as Aladdin journeys to find a magic lamp in a cave of (not-so-great) wonders. Along his way Aladdin seeks answers and advice from wise genies, a powerful sultan and even his own mother to find a way to meet the princess. However, even with the lamp in hand, Aladdin will have to learn that it takes more than a wish to make a good impression!

Auditions will be on September 29, 2014 at 4:30 PM. All Missoula Children's Theatre shows are designed for students Kindergarten through 12th grade. There are roles especially suited for all ages, skill levels and experience levels. Performance dates for this show are October 4, 2014 at 7 PM!

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.
