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.

Guthrie KentuckyGuthrie, KY – As a part of its annual Heritage Days celebration, the town of Guthrie Kentucky staged a wonderful quilt show that was held at the Guthrie Senior Citizen Center; the show is always my favorite part of the Guthrie Heritage Days.  I have attended this show for several years and always discover and something or someone, that is new and interesting.

I was greeted when I arrived at the door by Helen Bellar who is the coordinator for the show.  She was delighted to show me a special exhibit by Doris Kelly’s Art III class from Todd Central High School. Students Cassie Hanners and Terese Rudder had created a quilt block which had won a First Prize and now resides in the Quilt Museum in Paducah. This is quite an accomplishment for high school students and is sure to be envied by many adult quilters.
