Roxy Regional Theatre introduces actors and actresses for upcoming performances

 

Roxy Regional TheatreClarksville, TN – The warmer weather is not the only change happening in Clarksville, as the Roxy Regional Theatre has a whole new company taking on the next several shows in the 29th season.  Some of you will recognize from past Roxy productions and we are excited to have several new faces joining us this season.

I wanted to take a moment to introduce them, as they are a part of our Roxy family and will serve Clarksville with their stellar performances over the next several months.

“I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change,” is having its two final performances this weekend at the Roxy Regional Theatre.

Oh the weather outside is frightful…

 

Roxy Regional TheatreWell, it’s official, it is the time of year when we go to work in the dark and leave work in the dark.  Thank you daylight savings time.  We at the Roxy Regional Theatre must now wait until “spring forward” to be able to frolic about in the sunlight.

I guess it is appropriate to say that we have officially entered the 2011 holiday season.  The annual Christmas tree is up in the lobby of the Roxy, this year courtesy of our friends at Wal-Mart after a post holiday donation last year.  The walls of the lobby are being serenaded by the harmonic sounds of Christmas carols and good ol’ Scrooge is about to wake up from his long winters nap.

Just a Typical…Saturday at the Roxy

 

Roxy Regional TheatreOne of the major misconceptions about the Roxy Regional Theatre, I think, is the fact that everything we do throughout the week takes place inside the 153-seat theatre. So, as Saturday, October 30th quickly approached, we stocked up on coffee, energy bars and hit the floors running.

A typical Saturday at the Roxy is already jam-packed but this particular Saturday was a little more packed than usual. The day began with our Saturday School of the Arts at 10:00am. We are fortunate to have close to 60 young people takes the acting portion of the program with our Artistic Director, John McDonald. They are working on a “workshop in-formance” of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream coming up in December.
