Roxy Regional TheatreClarksville, TN – You’ll be dreaming of a “Plaid” Christmas this holiday season when the boys from Forever Plaid return to the Roxy Regional Theatre!

At first Frankie, Jinx, Smudge and Sparky aren’t sure why they’ve returned to Earth for another posthumous performance, but a phone call from the heavenly Rosemary Clooney lets them know that they’re needed to put a little four-part harmony into a discordant holiday.

Roxy Founders to be Featured Guests at June Spring Salon Event

 

In fall of 1983, Clarksville’s arts community received a major boost when Tom Thayer and John McDonald converted an old, downtown movie house into the Roxy Regional Theatre. The historic building on Franklin Street, with its famed neon sign, soon became a cultural hub for the area.

Twenty-seven years and more than 200 productions later, the theater is still thriving. At 7:30pm on June 10th, the Austin Peay State University Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts will host a special Spring Salon event at the Roxy, featuring an evening with both McDonald and Thayer.
