Roxy Regional Theatre ceases operations through April 3rd

Clarskville's Roxy Regional TheatreClarksville, TN – The Roxy Regional Theatre is committed to the safety of our patrons, staff and our community, which has led us to make a series of decisions concerning the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak.

With the situation growing here in the United States and our own community, and while trying to be preemptive with what has occurred overseas, the Roxy Regional Theatre has made the difficult decision to temporarily cease operations, effective today, Tuesday, March 17th, 2020, through Friday, April 3rd, 2020.

This decision has been reached after much consideration, as the Roxy Regional Theatre is a cultural hub for art and entertainment in Clarksville-Montgomery County and Middle Tennessee.

The Roxy Regional Theatre previously announced that precautionary measures and delays to productions were put in place for the safety of all concerned, but we feel that the best course of action, at this point, is this temporary closure.

This is a voluntary closure through Friday, April 3rd, 2020. We do this to prioritize the overall health and safety of our patrons, staff and the community as a whole. This is the best way that we here at the Roxy Regional Theatre can pledge our commitment to flattening the curve of this outbreak.

During this temporary closure, the full-time staff of the Roxy Regional Theatre will continue to receive full pay, as will the actors and production staff currently under contract. With this said, we invite you to consider making a tax-deductible donation to the Roxy Regional Theatre as we navigate through this challenging time.
