Oh the weather outside is frightful…

 

Roxy Regional TheatreWell, 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.
