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.

The Civil War Musical at the Roxy Theater—What a Bargain!

 

Clarksville, TN – Attending the Civil War Musical at Clarksville’s Roxy Theater is the biggest bargain in entertainment in Middle Tennessee! Where else can you see a professionally staged and professionally performed musical for a mere twenty dollars?

“The Civil War: A Sesquicentennial Event” is from a book by Frank Wildhorn, Gregory Boyd and Jack Murphy with music by Frank Wildhorn, and lyrics by Frank Wildhorn, Gregory Boyd and Jack Murphy.

What this musical accomplishes is the revelation that both Union and Confederate soldiers–many of whom literally were brothers–had identical desires and feelings going into war. Each is certain that his cause is just and worth fighting for. Slaves are portrayed suffering intense emotions as husband and wife are separated by forces outside themselves.
