Clarksville, TN – This week the Roxy Regional Theatre will be staging the last few runs of their production of the Charles Dickens classic tale, A Christmas Carol. There are a few things that tell me Christmas is coming each year; the lighting of Christmas on the Cumberland, Downtown for the Holidays and the Christmas parade, and the Roxy’s wonderful annual rendition of this timeless Christmas story. This week is your last chance to catch this heartwarming show.
The play features John McDonald as Ebenezer Scrooge, and follows him as he meets the spirits of Christmas Past, Present and Future while rediscovering the true meaning of the Christmas season. McDonald is backed up by a stellar cast that includes: Ryan Bowie, Brianna Hertzberg, Travis Kendrick, Alan Lee, Brandon Meeks, Leah Sugerman and Joylene Taylor. These are some of the best professional actors the Roxy has ever played host to.
Clarksville, TN – After the Thanksgiving rush is over, sit back and relax at the Roxy Regional Theatre with a rollicking holiday morsel that is sure to sweeten your taste buds and warm even the hardest of hearts.
John McDonald, as Ebenezer Scrooge, meets the spirits of Christmas Past, Present and Future while rediscovering the true meaning of the holiday in the Charles Dickens classic “A Christmas Carol”, opening Friday, November 25th, at 8:00pm.
Ebenezer Scrooge is confronted by the ghost of his former partner Jacob Marley in the 2010 Roxy production of A Christmas Carol.
Well, it’s official, it is the time of year when we go to work in the dark and leave work in the dark. Thank you daylight savings time. We at the Roxy Regional Theatre must now wait until “spring forward” to be able to frolic about in the sunlight.
I guess it is appropriate to say that we have officially entered the 2011 holiday season. The annual Christmas tree is up in the lobby of the Roxy, this year courtesy of our friends at Wal-Mart after a post holiday donation last year. The walls of the lobby are being serenaded by the harmonic sounds of Christmas carols and good ol’ Scrooge is about to wake up from his long winters nap.

They say your first musical will always be your favorite, and that is the case for me with Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, it was the show that was playing when I first ventured into the Roxy Regional Theatre. Their professional production of this Disney classic sparked a continuing love of Musical Theatre in me.
So, when I heard that the Roxy was planning on staging Disney’s Beauty and the Beast Jr. as part of their 2010 season I was excited as I saw it as as chance to revisit my first musical. And I wasn’t disappointed. Watching those young actors and actresses performing their hearts out, renewed that feeling of wonder that I experienced when I sat in the seats watching my very first show at the Roxy.
A tale as old as time….The beautiful Belle yearns to escape provincial life and her brute of a suitor, Gaston. However, Belle finds more adventure than she wanted when she becomes a captive in the Beast’s enchanted castle! Dancing flatware, menacing wolves, and singing furniture will fill the Roxy’s stage with thrills in this beloved fairy tale about very different people finding strength in one another and learning how to love. Disney’s BEAUTY AND THE BEAST Jr., opens at the Roxy Regional Theatre Friday, May 21st, at 6:00 pm.
