Kendall Anne Thompson Concludes a Year-Long Run at the Roxy with “Beehive”

 

Written by John McDonald

Kendall Anne ThompsonRoxy Regional TheatreClarksville, TN – Kendall Anne Thompson will forever be known to Roxy fans as “The Green Girl,” a moniker she justifiably won while performing her star turn last season in “Shout: The Mod Musical”.

So, we color-coded her in green again for her farewell performance in “Beehive: The ‘60s Musical Sensation”. When Beehive closes this weekend, she takes with her a piece of our hearts and leaves with a cache of credits — The Sound of Music (Maria), Almost Heaven, The Civil War, Bea(u)tiful in the Extreme (Sacagawea), Doubt (Sister James), Hamlet (Ophelia), A Christmas Carol (Belle/Mary), Tape (Amy), Around the World in 80 Days (Aouda), Dracula (Vampiress) — credits which would be coveted by any actress at the end of a long career, but even more so by someone so young, so talented and so giving an artist. Kendall has thrilled this senior citizen and awakened feelings I had long forgotten, some parental and a few prurient.

Last Chance to catch the Musical “Beehive” at the Roxy

 

Roxy Regional TheatreBEEHIVE: The '60s Musical Sensation

Clarksville, TN – If you have not seen it yet, you need to get down to the Roxy Regional Theatre this weekend for the last three shows of “Beehive: The ’60s Musical Sensation”. This show features five hot women, a six-piece band and dozens of outrageous costumes. I think the shower curtain skirt was my favorite.

Kendall Anne Thompson, Brianna Hertzberg, Troy Jackson, Jenae Thompson, and Heather Anderson give magnificent vocal performances singing songs from The Chiffons, The Supremes, Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin, Janis Joplin and other ’60s pop stars. Several of the songs featured subperb harmonies.

The Beehive Musical has Clarksville abuzz about the Roxy Regional Theatre

 

BEEHIVE: The '60s Musical SensationRoxy Regional TheatreClarksville, TN – As I stood in the Roxy Regional Theatre watching Brianna Hertzberg, Troy Jackson, Kendall Anne Thompson, Jenae Thompson, and Heather Anderson performing in the opening number of their production of  Beehive: The ’60s Musical Sensation all I could think of was WOW!

This engrossing musical captures you from the get-go, and doesn’t let you go until the final curtain comes down ending the show. Older adults will find the musical a trip down memory lane, while the younger crowd will get an amazing introduction to the music that shaped a generation.

The musical follows a group of young women as they experience the social and cultural growth that was the 1960’s.The songs and the singers start out somewhat shallow and cheerful, however the singers and their songs grow in depth, complexity, and social awareness as the events of that tumultuous decade unfold.
