Clarksville, TN – Beginning tonight, April 22nd, at 8:00pm, the Roxy Regional Theatre marks the Sesquicentennial with “The Civil War”, a musical tribute covering the enormous emotional landscape of the most difficult test our nation has ever endured.
Reminiscent of Ken Burns’ acclaimed documentary, “The Civil War” puts a human face on the greatest tragedy of American history and passionately asks us to consider our beliefs about freedom, honor and faith. This thrilling, gut-wrenching and awe-inspiring musical draws on letters, diaries, firsthand accounts and the words of Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass and Walt Whitman.
Written by Frank Wildhorn, Gregory Boyd and Jack Murphy, “The Civil War” is directed by Tom Thayer and features Bryan Benware, Ryan Bowie, Rendell DeBose, Jesaira Glover, Brianna Hertzberg, Travis Kendrick, Matthew Magnusson, Keith Panzarella, Michael Quinichett, Roslyn Seale, Jabriel Shelton, Kendall Anne Thompson and Christopher Wren.
This production is sponsored in part by The Law Offices of Olson & Phillips.
“The Civil War” runs April 22nd through May 21st, playing Wednesdays and Thursdays at 7:00pm and Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00pm, with a 2:00pm matinee on Saturday, May 14th.
