Clarksville, TN – You have through Saturday to go celebrate Christmas at the Roxy Regional Theatre, with their production of the Dicken’s classic A Christmas Carol. This wonderful Christmas story has become a yearly tradition at the Theatre and one that will keep you coming back year after year.
I watch this show every year and somehow The Roxy Regional Theatre manages to keep the story fresh, fun, and entertaining. They manage to do this through the addition of new songs, bringing in new actors, and by giving area children the opportunity to work on a professional stage.
This years production again features the masterful acting talent of John McDonald as Ebenezer Scrooge. He is backed up by a one of the best Christmas Carol casts ever which includes Ryan Bowie, Kaitlyn Doughty, Leslie Green, Rob Rodems, Michelle Foletta, Colin Ryan, and Humberto Figueroa. The show is directed by Tom Thayer.
