Clarksville, TN – You have through Saturday to go celebrate Christmas at the Roxy Regional Theatre, with their production of the Dicken’s classic A Christmas Carol. This wonderful Christmas story has become a yearly tradition at the Theatre and one that will keep you coming back year after year.
I watch this show every year and somehow The Roxy Regional Theatre manages to keep the story fresh, fun, and entertaining. They manage to do this through the addition of new songs, bringing in new actors, and by giving area children the opportunity to work on a professional stage.

Clarksville, TN – Last night the Roxy Regional Theatre kicked off a production of one of William Shakespeare’s classic plays The Winter’s Tale, a story of envy, revenge, love and, ultimately, redemption. This marks their 27th consecutive year producing the Bard’s classic stories.
The play was directed by John McDonald and edited by Brandon Meeks, and tells the story of the jealous King Leontes of Sicilia who nearly topples his own kingdom when he falsely accuses his queen of adultery with his childhood friend, King Polixenes of Bohemia. In his foolishness and rage, he loses his wife, his son, and his baby daughter. The cycle of life and the power of true love come alive upon the Roxy stage, as a family is reunited, both physically and spiritually, through the power of forgiveness.

Well, it’s official, it is the time of year when we go to work in the dark and leave work in the dark. Thank you daylight savings time. We at the Roxy Regional Theatre must now wait until “spring forward” to be able to frolic about in the sunlight.
I guess it is appropriate to say that we have officially entered the 2011 holiday season. The annual Christmas tree is up in the lobby of the Roxy, this year courtesy of our friends at Wal-Mart after a post holiday donation last year. The walls of the lobby are being serenaded by the harmonic sounds of Christmas carols and good ol’ Scrooge is about to wake up from his long winters nap.
