Clarksville, TN – Calling all budding young performers and adults interested in honing their craft or discovering a new passion! Registration is now open for the Fall 2021 session of the Roxy Regional Theatre’s School of the Arts.
Since 1995, the Roxy Regional Theatre has been introducing youth to the experience of live theatre and expanding their knowledge of the craft through the School of the Arts.
The School of the Arts continues to operate with smaller, more focused classes due to the ongoing COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic and a more specialized approach to education.
In addition to youth, the program has been expanded to include class offerings for adults 18 years of age and older.
The Fall 2021 session runs from August 16th through December 18th.
Classes meet once per week for one hour.
Evening and weekend class times are being offered to provide greater flexibility around school and work schedules.
