by RoxyRegionalTheatre on September 1, 2020

We cannot thank you all enough for your continued support over the past six months while we have been dark … and we are excited to finally be able to say that the wait is nearly over!

Ahead of next weekend’s return of our Planters Bank Presents… film series, the Roxy Regional Theatre box office has now resumed regular operating hours.

Admission to our Friday night movies is $5 per person (plus a ticketing operation fee), unless otherwise noted. Popcorn, assorted candy and drinks will be available as concessions in sealed packaging. Tickets are available online 24/7 at www.roxyregionaltheatre.org/filmseries or by phone at (931) 645-7699 and in person between 9:00am and 2:00pm, Monday through Friday. The box office will also be open starting 30 minutes prior to each Friday night’s movie.

Due to the continued escalation of the COVID-19 pandemic and in accordance with local regulations, seating will be limited to 50 people per showing and all patrons will be required to wear facial coverings to mask the nose and mouth. Groups will be limited to eight (8) guests and will be seated by staff members to ensure proper social distancing. Sanitizing stations will be available in the building. For additional information about the steps the Roxy Regional Theatre staff are taking and what we are asking of our patrons to limit the spread of this virus, please view our COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS AND REQUIREMENTS.

Thank you again for your support during these challenging and uncertain times, and we look forward to seeing you back at the Roxy again soon!

Roxy Regional SCHOOL OF THE ARTS Fall 2020 Registration Now Open

by RoxyRegionalTheatre on August 10, 2020

Calling all budding young performers and adults interested in honing their craft or discovering a new passion! Registration is now open for the Fall 2020 session of the Roxy Regional School of the Arts.

In March, our educational programming had to be suspended and our students’ production of Bye Bye Birdie Jr. cancelled, due to recommendations from state and local officials regarding the escalating COVID-19 pandemic and in the interest of the safety of our young performers, patrons and staff.

“That left close to sixty students without a full-time artistic home and, more importantly, took away the safe place in which they all love to grow and blossom,” Roxy Regional Theatre Executive Director Ryan Bowie said. “But I am happy to report that the School of the Arts will be back in September, looking a little different and expanded.”

Those differences include the presence of a number of safety measures, 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 will also be required for staff and students, and sanitizing stations will be located throughout the building.

Since 1995, the Roxy Regional Theatre has been introducing youth to the experience of live theatre and expanding their knowledge of the craft through the School of the Arts. While, in the past, the program has only been offered to those aged 9 to 18, this year the School of the Arts has been expanded to also serve adults 18 years of age and older.

The Fall 2020 session runs September 7 to December 19. 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.

In addition to Ryan Bowie – who will be teaching courses on Musical Theatre Dance and Theatre History – this fall’s instructors include company member Sara Anderson with Relaxation and Body Awareness and Public Speaking; technical director and company member Matthew Combs with Improvisation, Comedy, Playwriting Forum and Movement for the Stage; videographer and company member David Graham with Acting Basics and Vocalization; and production stage manager Kenneth L. Waters, Jr. with Sound Design 101, QLab Training and Stage Management.

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. The registration deadline for all classes is Saturday, September 5, and space is limited.
