Thoughts on the Future of Clarksville and the Roxy

November 20, 2015

I have a friend in the current Leadership Clarksville class who had a query concerning how to bring people downtown. It started me thinking that, in our eagerness to make travel accessible, we have done everything possible to lead travel away from downtown. We made a bypass, a cross-thru and a go-around — which, of […]

THE SECRET GARDEN Opens Tonight at 8pm for Pay-What-You-Can

November 13, 2015

When John Davis passed, we lost a unique character, a devoted theatre goer and a goodhearted civic activist. When the pennies from The Lillian’s opening, first day tokens, were stolen off the wall of the Roxy, John replaced them and lifted my spirits which had sunk due to the thoughtless thievery. John Davis also opened […]

Ryan Bowie Stars in theotherspace’s BUYER & CELLAR, November 9, 10, 16 and 17

November 6, 2015

“It’s veteran actor Jay Doolittle, who often is the story’s heart. His portrayal of the aging, disabled ranch hand Candy, who first loses his dog and then his hope for friends and a future, helps authenticate Of Mice and Men‘s overall message.  Not a happy story, this is a very real one.” So ends Amy […]

JEKYLL AND HYDE, ROCKY HORROR Take Bows This Weekend

October 30, 2015

“It is the custom on the stage to present the tragic and the comic scenes, in alternation. The hero sinks, weighed down by misfortunes; in the next, his faithful squire regales the audience with a comic song. We behold the heroine in the grasp of a ruthless baron: her virtue in danger, drawing forth her […]

Farewells and Happy Returns

October 23, 2015

Paige King, Alan Robison and Nate Miller are all moving away and leaving us with an unfilled void. We all named Paige the “Mayor of Franklin Street.” Her taste, community involvement and self-sacrifice in supporting many nonprofit and civic groups were phenomenal and will be sorely missed. She was owner of one of our more […]

Thanks to All Who Made Gala 33 a Success!

October 16, 2015

Jim Knoll arrested me at our 33rd Anniversary Gala — handcuffs and all. He is the kind of police officer who gives all who serve the law a good and solid reputation. For years, Officer Knoll has given of his time to oversee the street during our al fresco dining events. The arrest, thank heavens, […]
