When the curtain call was over for the Granbury Theatre Company’s production of “Lucky Stiff,” I had to check to do a quick check to see if I still had a rear end.
I thought I’d laughed it off.
This is one of the funniest shows I’ve seen in a long time in Granbury. From the acting to the plot to the music, it just doesn’t get any funnier than this.… Read the rest
In the words of co-directors Jodie and Soni Barrus, “Elvis has NOT left the building.”
At least his memory and music are very much alive in the Granbury Theatre Company’s production of “All Shook Up.” The show is currently running and continues through Aug. 24 at the Granbury Live Theater on the square.… Read the rest
The Granbury Theatre Company has a pretty good thing going with what is now annual performances of “1776 The Musical” at the historic Hood County Courthouse.
Sure, it can get a little warm in there when it’s packed, and with performances as good as this, it should stay packed. The secret is to move to the back seats under an air-conditioning vent, like I did for Act 2 – of course, if everyone did that, it might get a little crowded back there.… Read the rest

There are many very good reasons to see the Granbury Theatre Company’s production of “Fiddler On The Roof.”
And there’s one great reason. Brian Lawson.
In arguably the best performance ever given by a local actor on a Granbury stage, Lawson is nothing short of magnificent in the role of Tevye, the main character. For lack of a better way to phrase it, this was truly a role he was born to play.… Read the rest

Things are heating up at the Granbury Theatre Company.
But the audience is quite comfortable with that – in fact, the hotter things are onstage, the more enjoyable things are for those watching.
Heated exchanges are the norm for the GTC’s production of “Twelve Angry Men.”
The show, one of the few non-musicals they present throughout the year, is running through May 30 at the old Granbury Live theater on the east side of the square.… Read the rest
Throughout history women have exhibited strength. In the Granbury Theatre Company’s latest production, “Little Women,” four sisters and their mother rely on the strength of each other to get by. Jo (Daron Cockerell) longs to be a writer, Meg (Ashley Blaine) is thrilled with marriage and motherhood (she’s also the oldest), Beth (Sydney Abbott) dreams of being a famous pianist, and young Amy (Taylor O’Toole finds herself the socialite of the group.… Read the rest

1. The Life of Pi - Director Ang Lee’s story of a boy lost at sea on a lifeboat with a bengal tiger is much more than a tale of survival. It is a story of faith, filmed beautiful with one of the sharpest and most brilliant scripts in years. Many directors turned away from the challenge of making this movie, but Lee stepped up and earned one of the film’s 11 Oscar nods.… Read the rest
An absolutely hilarious show is playing at the Granbury Theatre Company this month.
If you like laughing (and who doesn’t), you have to go see “Cash On Delivery.”
If it seems as though I’m raving, I am. I have seen many shows in Granbury at the Opera House, Granbury Live and now with the present group. This is arguably the funniest show I have seen on a stage here.… Read the rest
