GirlfriendTake a trip back in time to the not-so-distant past when flannel was the height of fashion and mix tapes were the language of love.

A coming-of-age musical inspired by Matthew Sweet’s 1991 breakthrough pop/rock album of the same name, GIRLFRIEND plays theotherspace at the Roxy Regional Theatre for four nights only, February 25 through March 5.

Set in small-town Nebraska in the early ’90s, GIRLFRIEND explores the relationship between two young men who appear to have little in common yet are intensely drawn together. Unfolding during the summer between high school graduation and whatever comes next, the story follows social outcast Will, played by Ian Alexander Erbe, and popular football player Mike, played by Ryan Bowie, as the pair figure out that there is more to life than what high school has taught them.

Capturing the excitement, confusion and passion of the rush of first-time love through the soundtrack of the show are music director Matthew McNeill on piano, Thad Wallus on bass, and Bernard Lott on drums.

Written by Todd Almond with music and lyrics by Matthew Sweet, GIRLFRIEND is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc., and produced in part through the generous support of Tim & Kris Lee.

GIRLFRIEND is presented in theotherspace, the 50-seat black-box theatre located upstairs at the Roxy Regional Theatre, and plays at 7:00pm on February 25, 26, March 4 and 5. Due to language and content, this production is recommended 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).

Children’s auditions for the roles of Scout, Jem and Dill in our upcoming production of TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD will be held Friday, February 15, at 5:00pm.

Interested auditionees should email roxy@roxyregionaltheatre.org to be added to the audition list. Children should come prepared with the Scout/Jem/Dill scene from the play (see below). To avoid distractions, parents will be asked to wait in the lobby during the auditions.

Character descriptions are as follows:

  • Scout is described as a young girl about to experience the events that will shape the rest of her life. She should, ideally, seem as young as nine. Scout is courageous and forthright. If a question occurs to her, she’ll ask it. Age is approximately 10 to 14.
     
  • Jem is a few years older than his sister Scout and, like his sister — perhaps even more than his sister — he’s reaching out to understand their unusual and thus not conventionally-admirable father. Probably the strongest undercurrent in Jem is his desire to communicate with his father. Age is approximately 10 to 14.
     
  • Dill is small and wise beyond his years. He is about the same age as Jem. Dill is neater and better dressed that his friends. There’s an undercurrent of sophistication to him, but his laugh is sudden and happy. Obviously there is a lack in Dill’s own home life, and he senses something in Atticus that’s missing from his own family relationship. Age is approximately 10 to 13.

Performances of TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD run March 8 through March 23. If cast, child must be available for rehearsals Monday, February 25, through Friday, March 8, per the rehearsal schedule. Some flexibility will be allowed for daytime rehearsals. Child must also be available for possible daytime performances for school groups at 10:00am on Mondays through Fridays during the run of the production.
