Message from Roxy Regional Theatre Executive Director Ryan Bowie

 

Clarskville's Roxy Regional TheatreClarksville, TN – It has been a long time, and I hope that you and your family are healthy and finding ways to stay safe but sane as well. I wanted to take a moment to provide some updates on the Roxy as we go into the fall.

As most of you know, the Roxy Regional Theatre closed in the middle of March before we were able to open our production of “A Streetcar Named Desire” due to the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic. As much as we wanted to open that production and the remainder of our summer season, the safety of our patrons, staff and talent was at the forefront of our decision-making process to then cancel the remainder of Season 37.

Clarksville has three mayors, and carols continue

 
Paige King, the owner of Hodgepodge

Paige King, the owner of Hodgepodge

I’m proud to know the “Mayor of Franklin Street,” and I call her my dear friend as well. She’s been mayor longer than John E. Piper, or even before we entered the Guinness Book of World Records by having two women as mayors. Au contraire, we have three: McMillan, Bowers and King.

Paige King has changed my life, my attitude and my mind. She lets me see the cup as half full. I was not so slowly turning into a drudge and could only think of all we lacked. Paige has helped me see the treasure we have and how we can move it forward and make it bigger and better. If one is allowed more than one best friend, Paige King is mine.

Her shop, Hodgepodge, puts me in mind of all the unique shops I haunt when I’m outside of Clarksville. Now I can joyfully haunt one here. She said that having a theatre helped seal her decision to settle in Clarksville, which is nice to say and even more to mean. «Read the rest of this article»
