THE LEGEND OF SLEEPY HOLLOW Opens Tonight at 8pm for Pay-What-You-Can

October 10, 2014

“Life is everything. Life is God. All is changing and moving, and that motion is God. To love life is to love God.” [Leo Tolstoy, War and Peace] It took me all summer, but I finished it. It seems I just put away my sweaters, and now it’s time to take them out again. The […]

Roxy Regional Theatre in Repertory

October 3, 2014

Monte (Mrs. George L. Narber) wanted us to produce Shakespeare. She wanted it to be a part of our yearly canon of plays. She wanted it so badly that she sent a check, if not two, each year to ensure that we had the funds to make that possible. And we have followed her wishes […]

Leonard Bernstein’s ON THE TOWN, Starring Stacy Turner, Now Playing

September 19, 2014

On the Town is nothing, if not great fun — and not just for me, in having so many of my most favorite people, artists, performers and just good friends who are or have worked so diligently toward making the production a wonderful reality. On the Town is celebrating its 70th anniversary and will be […]

ON THE TOWN Opens for Pay-What-You-Can Next Wednesday

September 12, 2014

I’ve heard, via the Clarksville grapevine, a city council member said the new center for arts and education would never be built. Really? What happened to faith? Whatever happened to moving into the 21st Century? I’m reading Tolstoy’s War and Peace. A phrase of Tolstoy’s seemed to be written for me. Tolstoy says, “No two […]

School of the Arts Begins with Gala and ON THE TOWN Hot On Its Heels

September 5, 2014

The Roxy Regional School of the Arts begins its fall/winter session tomorrow (Saturday) at 9:00am. That, for me, is a heavy burden, for I must try my very best to emulate my early mentors — Sherwood Lohry, Alan Bates, Ray Hill, George Touliatos, Eugart Yerian and Sister Mary Sebastian, some of Memphis’ leading directors and […]

FROLIC ON FRANKLIN, Roxy Gala Coming Soon on Saturday, September 13

August 29, 2014

Art for art’s sake. That really could be the tone for the Roxy Gala and also for Frolic on Franklin: visual artists giving of their talent, energy and time to keep the performing arts alive and well — not only well, but flourishing. Sadly, we Americans have this unexplainable belief that if it is here, […]

Take a Trip Down Memory Lane with A NIGHT ON THE TERRAZZO, August 22 – September 12

August 22, 2014

When Mrs. George L. “Monte” Narber asked that we might try presenting Shakespeare at the Roxy, I had serious doubts. Shakespeare in Clarksville? My fears were soon put to rest when our first foray, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, was seen as a huge success. I, too, like Monte, was hooked on the idea, so we […]
