Disney’s “Tarzan” Swings Into Clarksville’s Roxy Regional Theatre, May 16th – May 31st

 

Roxy Regional TheatreClarksville, TN – “Two worlds, one family.” The classic story of an outsider trying to fit in is at the heart of the Roxy Regional School of the Arts annual spring musical, Disney’s “Tarzan”, playing May 16th – May 31st.

Based on Edgar Rice Burroughs’ “Tarzan of the Apes” and the hit Disney film, this action-packed musical tells the story of an infant boy orphaned on the shores of West Africa. Taken in and raised by a tribe of gorillas, Young Tarzan (played by Riley Jenkins) strives for acceptance by his ape father while grappling with his uniqueness.

Wrapping up Clarksville’s 2014 Rivers and Spires Festival

 

Rivers and Spires FestivalClarksville, TN – The last day of the 2014 Rivers and Spires Festival continued to be the best in memory. The weather was absolutely flawless, neither too hot nor to cold. There wasn’t a cloud in the sky throughout the entire day.

I rushed down to the Festival at 9:00am to catch the annual WJZM 1400 AM Clarksville in Review broadcast from the Festival. This usually is held at the Bill Roberts thunder road automotive tent on Franklin Street just down from the Roxy Regional Theatre. The program was already well underway when I arrived.
