The Rocky Horror ShowDig out your fishnet stockings and sharpen your stilettos! That sweet transvestite and his motley crew are back for the eighth year in an annual tradition on the corner of Franklin and First in Historic Downtown Clarksville.

Richard O’Brien’s cult classic THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW returns to the Roxy Regional Theatre for a limited engagement on Friday, October 25, at 8:00pm. In keeping with the theatre’s traditional pay-what-you-can opening night, all tickets not pre-sold at the regular ticket price will go on sale at 7:30pm that evening for a $5 minimum donation.

Ian Alexander Erbe and Yarissa Tiara Millan star as Brad Majors and his fiancee Janet Weiss — a wholesome, well-behaved, utterly normal young couple in love — who innocently set out to visit an old professor one fateful night.

Unfortunately, the night out is destined to be one they will never forget, when a thunderstorm and a flat tire lead them to the castle of Dr. Frank ‘N’ Furter — an alien, transvestite scientist with a manic genius and insatiable libido — played by a stiletto and fishnet stocking-clad Mike Kinzer.

A loving homage to the cult-classic, sci-fi film and horror genres with an irresistible rock ‘n’ roll score, this is a hilarious, wild ride that Clarksville will not soon forget!

Ryan Bowie once again returns to the role of Riff Raff, alongside Melody Lieberman as Magenta, Caitie L. Moss as Columbia, Geoffrey F. Belliston as Eddie, Matthew Combs as Rocky, and Brian Best as Dr. Scott. Prepare to dance the “Time Warp” like never before to live music provided by The Roxy Band, featuring Matt McNeill on piano, John Mayes-Barron on guitar, Colin Mai on bass and Thad Wallus on drums.

THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc., and is produced in part through the generous support of Mary & Rick Konvalinka, Tim & Kris Lee, Waterdogs Scuba & Safety, CeMe Photography and Brad & Lisa Martin.

This production is recommended for mature audiences only, due to language and content. Audience participation is encouraged, and patrons are invited to dress up in their favorite ROCKY HORROR attire. Bags of props will be available for $5 in the lobby one hour prior to performances. Outside props will not be permitted, as they may damage the theatre or injure actors and/or audience members.

Greater TunaTwo actors, twenty characters, and a barrel of laughs are coming to the corner of Franklin and First in Historic Downtown Clarksville this month.

Following on the heels of last season’s hit holiday comedy A Tuna Christmas, Ryan Bowie and Brian Best return to the third smallest town in Texas (where the Lion’s Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies) in GREATER TUNA, playing October 14 through October 22 in theotherspace, the 50-seat black-box theatre located upstairs at the Roxy Regional Theatre.

In this hilarious send-up of small-town morals and mores, Ryan Bowie and Brian Best play the entire population of Tuna, Texas — including Arles Struvie, Thurston Wheelis, Aunt Pearl, Petey Fisk, Phineas Blye, Reverend Spikes and over a dozen others — in a “tour de farce” of quick change artistry, changing costumes and characterizations faster than a jack rabbit runs from a coyote.

The first in a series of comedic plays by Ed Howard, Joe Sears and Jaston Williams (followed by A Tuna Christmas, Red, White and Tuna and Tuna Does Vegas), GREATER TUNA is at once an affectionate comment on small-town, Southern life and attitudes, but also a withering satire of the same.

No stranger to the world of one-man, quick-change comedy, Ryan Bowie, executive director of the Roxy Regional Theatre, has previously shown his versatility by playing nearly forty roles in Becky Mode’s Fully Committed, as well as a diverse range of roles in David Sedaris’ The Santaland Diaries, Jonathan Tolins’ Buyer & Cellar and Fred Barton’s Miss Gulch Returns, among others.

Brian Best has had audiences rolling in the aisles ever since his Roxy Regional Theatre debut as housewife Edna Turnblad in Hairspray, delighting theatregoers in myriad roles, including Dr. Scott and the Narrator in Richard O’Brien’s The Rocky Horror Show, Kris Kringle in Meredith Willson’s Miracle on 34th Street and Charles Guiteau in Assassins.

GREATER TUNA is made possible in part by Monica Drake & Mitchell Ketchens and Jill Eichhorn & Barry Kitterman and is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc., a Concord Theatricals Company.

GREATER TUNA is presented in theotherspace, the 50-seat black-box theatre located upstairs at the Roxy, and plays at 7:00pm on October 14, 15, 21 and 22. Please note: Due to language and content, this production is suggested for mature audiences only.

Tickets are $20 and may be purchased online via the below button, by phone at (931) 645-7699, or at the theatre during regular box office hours (9:00am to 2:00pm, Monday through Friday, and one hour prior to curtain).
