We are anxious to start working with the budding young performers and adults in our community who are interested in honing their craft or discovering a new passion through our School of the Arts educational programming. However, as with most plans over this past year, this remains a fluid situation.

We will be POSTPONING the start of the Spring 2021 session of the Roxy Regional School of the Arts to the first week of March.

Our decision-making process has not been easy. We have weighed Governor Bill Lee’s executive orders regarding gatherings, along with mandates at the local level and now the Clarksville-Montgomery County School System’s latest decisions regarding in-person learning. In the end, we have decided to follow the lead of CMCSS.

We appreciate your understanding as we strive to keep all of our staff, students and their families safe during this ongoing pandemic. Those who had previously registered for classes beginning in February have been notified regarding this change.

The Spring 2021 session now runs March 1 through May 22. Classes meet once per week for one hour. Evening and weekend class times are being offered to provide greater flexibility around school and work schedules.

Classes covering a variety of topics and areas of interest are led by our staff and professional company members:

  • Acting Fundamentals (ages 8 to 12) with David Graham
  • Acting for Young Adults (ages 13+ / ages 15+) with Matthew Combs
  • Let’s Make Some Noise (ages 13+) with Kenneth L. Waters, Jr.
  • Improvisation (ages 9 to 18) with David Graham
  • From the Page to the Stage (ages 13+) with Ryan Bowie
  • Going LIVE (ages 13+) with Kenneth L. Waters, Jr.
  • Making It (ages 13+) with Ryan Bowie & Matthew Combs
  • Stage Management (ages 15+) with Kenneth L. Waters, Jr.
  • Musical Theatre Ensemble (ages 9 to 18) with Ryan Bowie & Matthew Combs

In response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, a number of safety measures are in place this year, including extra cleaning between classes and limiting class sizes to no more than ten students to allow for proper social distancing. Facial coverings to mask the nose and mouth are also required for staff and students, and sanitizing stations are located throughout the building.

Tuition starts at $100/month per class, with discounts available for multiple class registrations. For registration, class descriptions, schedule and instructors, please visit www.roxyregionaltheatre.org/schoolofthearts. (Please note: You will not be charged at the time of initial registration, but shortly thereafter you will receive an email with additional registration information and an invoice for payment due on the first day of class.) The registration deadline for the Spring 2021 session is February 27, and space is limited.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!! We hope your holidays were filled with joy, and 2021 brings better and brighter days to everyone!

While we continue to take a brief hiatus from films and performances, due to Governor Bill Lee’s executive orders limiting gatherings, the Roxy Regional Theatre is offering a fun (and free) way to experience the literary arts and unwind in the evenings with your family.
