Clarksville, TN – When a new youth praise band was formed at St. Bethlehem United Methodist Church three years ago, there was much work to do.
Two of the original members of the band, named Marked, were still in the learning stages of playing their instruments – Webb Booth on guitar and Austin Robertson on drums.
A couple of years later, three more members joined, and their ability to play instruments also was limited. Yet through commitment, perseverance and love – which also describes the journey in their Christian faith – the band has joined the ranks of being among the best youth praise bands in the state.
Clarksville, TN – The Acuff Circle of Excellence Community Advisory Board of the Austin Peay State University Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts presented its annual Ovation Awards on Sunday, March 6th to those who have made significant contributions to the artistic and cultural life of the Clarksville community.
The Ovation Awards were established in 1995 by the APSU Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts.
They say your first musical will always be your favorite, and that is the case for me with Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, it was the show that was playing when I first ventured into the Roxy Regional Theatre. Their professional production of this Disney classic sparked a continuing love of Musical Theatre in me.
So, when I heard that the Roxy was planning on staging Disney’s Beauty and the Beast Jr. as part of their 2010 season I was excited as I saw it as as chance to revisit my first musical. And I wasn’t disappointed. Watching those young actors and actresses performing their hearts out, renewed that feeling of wonder that I experienced when I sat in the seats watching my very first show at the Roxy.
A tale as old as time….The beautiful Belle yearns to escape provincial life and her brute of a suitor, Gaston. However, Belle finds more adventure than she wanted when she becomes a captive in the Beast’s enchanted castle! Dancing flatware, menacing wolves, and singing furniture will fill the Roxy’s stage with thrills in this beloved fairy tale about very different people finding strength in one another and learning how to love. Disney’s BEAUTY AND THE BEAST Jr., opens at the Roxy Regional Theatre Friday, May 21st, at 6:00 pm.
The Roxy Regional Theatre’s opens their production of Disney’s High School Musical 2 this evening. The show is based on the Disney Channel Original Movie written by Peter Barsocchini, the show is directed by Tom Thayer, and features choreography by Chi Lopes. Starring Aaron Riesebeck as Troy Bolton, and Mindy Wedner as Gabriella Montez, Maggie Politi as Sharpay Evans, and Bryan Zoppi as her Brother Ryan. Q108′s Ryan Ploeckelman plays Mr. Fulton the manager of the Country club. The catchy and upbeat music was written by Matthew Gerrard, Robbie Nevil, David N. Lawrence, Faye Greenberg, Randy Petersen, Kevin Quinn, Jamie Houston, Andy Dodd, and Adam Watts. The production mixes professional actors and actresses with the talented kids from the Roxy’s School of the Arts.
In this production, it’s summertime and school is out for the East High Wildcats. Like most kids the Wildcats need summer jobs. Basketball Captain Troy Bolton not only lands a job at the local country club, but also finds positions for his girlfriend Gabriella and the rest of the Wildcats. When Troy starts to worry about his future, Sharpay takes advantage of Troy’s situation to force a wedge between him and Gabriella, and schemes to prevent the Gabriella and the Wildcats from being able to challenge her in the Talent show.
Gabriella, Troy and the rest of the gang are back at the Roxy Regional Theatre this spring for Disney’s HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL 2, opening April 9 at 8pm.
Celebrating the last day of their junior year, the East High Wildcats blast onto the summer scene with newfound jobs at the Lava Springs Country Club. Keeping every ounce of the light-hearted fun that makes HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL a household name, this buoyant sequel takes on the questions of real kids facing the realities of the adult world. Friendships are tested, summer romances go haywire, and the meaning of success is redefined.
Directed by Tom Thayer and choreographed by Chi Lopes, Disney’s HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL 2 stars Mindy Wedner as Gabriella Montez and Aaron Riesebeck as Troy Bolton.
Set in the romantic past of New Orleans Blanche DuBois’s neurotic and genteel pretensions are no match for the brutish realities of her brother-in-law, Stanley Kowalski.
To fully understand the intricacies of this masterpiece play, in this writers opinion you just have to come from the south. Otherwise it is all too easy to miss the subtle interplay of these delicious personalities as they intertwine in a tapestry that is as old as, well the south.
You have Blanche DuBois the socialite (Alicia Kelly); the submissive wife Stella (Chase Kamata); Stanley the abuser (Justin Barnum); the dotting son Harold (Brenden Cataldo); among others. The acting was tight, performers seamlessly melding into their roles as if they had been born to them.
This Friday, November 6, the Roxy Regional Theatre welcomes the opening of Tennessee Williams’ Pulitzer Prize-winning classic set in 1940′s New Orleans, A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE, with our regular pay-what-you-can night. Tickets go on sale at 7:30pm for whatever you wish to pay; curtain is at 8pm.
This production stars Justin Barnum as Stanley Kowalski and Alicia Kelly as Blanche DuBois, with Chase Kamata (Stella), Brendan Cataldo (Mitch), Linda Speir (Eunice), Phil Perry (Steve), Jay Doolittle (Doctor) and Judi Sinks (Nurse). Webb Booth, Hugh Poland and Jacob Ritchart play newsboys. «Read the rest of this article»
