Clarksville, TN – It is with heavy hearts that the Roxy Regional Theatre announces the extension of our temporary closure due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic through Friday, May 1st, 2020.
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 difficult decisions concerning the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
With the situation continuing to escalate around the nation and in our own community, we know this is the right decision as we do our part to help prevent the spread and facilitate flattening the curve of this deadly virus.
First and foremost, we cannot thank you enough for your continued understanding, patience and support of YOUR Roxy Regional Theatre. Over the past few weeks, we have been touched by your kind words of encouragement, contributions and other offers of support.
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.

Bye Bye Birdie, Jr.
Following the guidelines and timelines set by the Clarksville-Montgomery County School System (CMCSS), which has closed schools through May 1st, we have made the heartbreaking decision to cancel our School of the Arts youth acting program for the remainder of the spring session. Logistically, with this much time off from weekly classes and rehearsals, our students will be unable to present “Bye Bye Birdie, Jr” this season.
