Roxy Regional Theatre gives Romeo & Juliet Historical Twist, Civil War-Style, March 8th–16th

 

Roxy Regional TheatreClarksville, TN – The tale of Romeo and Juliet is one which truly transcends time and place — and beginning March 8th, the Roxy Regional Theatre will prove it by setting one of William Shakespeare’s most famous plays during the American Civil War.

This historical twist to the classic love story could not come at a more fitting time, as we commemorate the 150th Anniversary of the American Civil War, a time when deeply rooted hatreds often pitted neighbor against neighbor and family against family, compelling lovers to risk everything to be together.

Spring Awakening Brings a Youthful Passion to the Roxy Regional Theatre

 

Spring Awakening at the Roxy Regional TheatreClarksville, TN – When I heard that the Roxy Regional Theatre was doing the musical Spring Awakening, I was hesitant; I wasn’t sure if they would be able to pull it off. When I told Tom Thayer this before seeing the show, he gave me an “oh please” look.

I had watched the videos of this production when it first launched on Broadway and felt sure that the Roxy’s Stage would be too small for that many people, Tom reassured me that there wasn’t really that many people in this production. He was right, and the cast was just the right size to tell the story.

Set in a socially and sexually repressive village in 19th century Germany, this coming of age story follows teenagers Melchior (Matt DuMont), Wendla (Hannah Church), and Moritz (Gregory Pember*) on their journeys of self-discovery.  Also featured are Melanie Beck, Josh Bernaski, Ryan Bowie, Regan Featherstone, Humberto Figueroa, Leslie Greene, Erin Keas, Ashley Laverty, John McDonald, Hollie Morse, Sean Ormond, Rob Rodems, Cassie Thompson and Kendall Anne Thompson.
