Clarksville, TN – It has been a long time, and I hope that you and your family are healthy and finding ways to stay safe but sane as well. I wanted to take a moment to provide some updates on the Roxy as we go into the fall.
As most of you know, the Roxy Regional Theatre closed in the middle of March before we were able to open our production of “A Streetcar Named Desire” due to the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic. As much as we wanted to open that production and the remainder of our summer season, the safety of our patrons, staff and talent was at the forefront of our decision-making process to then cancel the remainder of Season 37.

A Message from Roxy Regional Theatre Executive Director Ryan Bowie
Clarksville, TN – The world continues to be a crazy place, one of uncertainty and confusion for many. Over the last several months, the Roxy Regional Theatre has temporarily closed its doors and suspended productions, and will continue to do so for the next several months, to ensure the safety of our staff, talent and patrons during the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic.
But here we are, still battling a virus that continues to kill innocent lives daily, facing another pandemic, INEQUALITY. In light of the events in Minneapolis, I found myself in utter disbelief that we, as a society, have not grown or changed in any way.
