A Charlie Brown ChristmasAfter the turkey and stuffing are put away on Thanksgiving night, bring your out-of-town guests to Historic Downtown Clarksville for family entertainment sure to get everyone in the holiday spirit.

Charles M. Schulz’s A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS opens at the Roxy Regional Theatre on Thursday, November 23, at 7:00pm. In keeping with the theatre’s opening night pay-what-you-can tradition, all tickets not pre-sold at the regular ticket price will go on sale at 6:30pm that evening for a $5 minimum donation. As a Black Friday bonus, pay-what-you-can tickets will also be available for the 8:00pm performance on Friday, November 24, beginning at 7:30pm that evening.

In A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS, the classic 1965 animated television special by Bill Melendez and Lee Mendelson comes to life, complete with everyone’s favorite characters and Vince Guaraldi’s iconic, jazzy score. When Charlie Brown complains about the overwhelming materialism he sees among everyone during the Christmas season, Lucy suggests that he become director of the school Christmas pageant. Charlie Brown accepts, but this proves to be a frustrating endeavor. When an attempt to restore the proper holiday spirit with a forlorn little Christmas fir tree fails, he needs Linus’ help to discover the real meaning of Christmas.

Starring Bryan Plummer as Charlie Brown, the musical also features RJ Magee as Snoopy, Shoshana Canali as Lucy, Josh Bernaski as Linus, Matthew Combs as Pig Pen, Quinn Tierney Vaira as Frieda, Ryan Bowie as Schroeder, Jackie Ostick as Violet, Michelle Foletta as Sally, Emily Rourke as Patty and Elisa Galindez as Shermy. Directed by Ryan Bowie, A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS was adapted for the stage by Eric Schaeffer by special arrangement with Arthur Whitelaw and Ruby Persson.

On Friday, November 24, patrons are invited to ring in the season at the seventh annual “Christmas Over The Cumberland” with Charlie Brown at F&M Bank’s Franklin Room, featuring dinner, meet-and-greet with Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the rest of the Peanuts gang, and holiday music with a Celtic flair by local favorites Red River Breeze. The evening’s menu features a chili bar with all the fixin’s; vegetable beef soup; salad bar; fruit, cheese and veggie display; and assorted holiday desserts, complemented with Beachaven wines. Doors open at 6:00pm, with dinner served at 6:30pm, followed by the 8:00pm performance of A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS at the Roxy Regional Theatre. Tickets are $40.

On Saturday, December 2, families can partake of lunch and holiday crafts with Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the rest of the Peanuts gang before the matinee. “Lunch with Charlie Brown” starts at 12:30pm across the street at Edward’s Steakhouse, followed by holiday arts and crafts and photos with the cast.

A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM Takes a Musical Twist, Nov 3 – Nov 11

by RoxyRegionalTheatre on October 27, 2017

A Midsummer Nights Dream“Ah, what fools these mortals be!” An annual tradition at the corner of Franklin and First in Historic Downtown Clarksville takes a twist this fall with the Roxy Regional Theatre’s production of A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM: The Musical, opening Friday, November 3, 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.

Whimsically adapted by Wade Bradford from Shakespeare’s classic romantic comedy, this musical version of A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM features the usual magical forest and spellbound lovers, but also an upstart Puck who decides to liven things up by modernizing the dialogue and adding song and dance numbers. It’s all fun and games until William Shakespeare, fresh from spinning in his grave, leaps onto the stage, demanding to know what on earth is going on!

Starring Charly Dannis as the mischievous faerie Puck, alongside Dean Cestari, Emily Rourke, Josh Bernaski and Michelle Foletta as the four lovers Lysander, Hermia, Demetrius and Helena, A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM: The Musical also features Andrew Gasparini, Benny Jones, RJ Magee, Jackie Ostick, Bryan Plummer, Quinn Tierney Vaira, Sebastian Fenton, Sylvia Mendiola, Lauren Mund and Kylan Elizabeth Ritchie.

Over a dozen original songs penned by Rachel Greenlee and Wade Bradford capture a wide range of emotions, including the enchanting “Moonbeams,” sung by Titania and her Fairies; the hilarious “Too Cute,” by the boy-band, the Mechanicals; the outraged, “Why Do They Have to Sing It?” sung by the Bard himself; and finally the romantic “Dance With Me,” sung by Hippolyta to the Duke. Although this musical version may be a bit more madcap than what the Bard had intended, this show still captures the wonder and the romance of the original play.

A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM: The Musical is made possible in part through the generous support of Stuart & Peggy Bonnington. Additional funding support has been provided by Ken Grambihler, Walter & Cindy Marczak, Jim B. Marshall, Jacqueline & Ned Crouch and John & Cathy Stanton.

Performances run November 3 through November 11 on Wednesdays and Thursdays at 7:00pm and Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00pm, with a 2:00pm matinee on Saturday, November 11.

Tickets are $25 (adults) and $15 (ages 13 and under) and may be reserved online at www.roxyregionaltheatre.org, 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). Military, APSU students and CitySaver coupon holders can receive two tickets for the price of one to Wednesday and Thursday performances during the run.
