Clarksville, TN – Five hot women, a six-piece band, 50 outrageous costumes, and 15 cans of hairspray a week can only mean one thing … BEEHIVE: The ’60s Musical Sensation, opening the Roxy Regional Theatre’s 29th Season on Friday, September 16th, at 8:00pm.
The Chiffons, The Supremes, Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin and Janis Joplin are just some of the ’60s pop stars singing such favorites as “One Fine Day,” “My Boyfriend’s Back,” “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow,” “It’s My Party,” “Proud Mary,” “Respect,” “A Natural Woman,” “Me and Bobby McGee” and many more!
Created by Larry Gallagher and directed by Tom Thayer, BEEHIVE features Ashley Brown, Brianna Hertzberg, Troy Jackson, Kendall Anne Thompson and Heather Trabucco, backed by a live six-piece band.
