Roxy Regional TheatreClarksville, TN– It was a more excited crowd than usual waiting in the lobby of the Roxy Regional Theatre when I arrived to attend the opening show for their production of Happily Ever After, a play which is based off of the tales of the Brothers Grimm and directed by John McDonald. Young girls and boys along with their parents were on hand to enjoy what was to be a fun and unique show.

One of the things that makes this show unique is in most plays the program follows a fixed set of scenes always in the same exact order; but in Happily Ever After the children set the course of the show.
