Ebenezer Scrooge is an affluent curmudgeon who places personal wealth above the happiness and comfort of others. With an infuriated “Bah! Humbug!” Scrooge summates his feelings of Christmas tidings and charitable giving, but he’s forced to face his selfish ways when visited by the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future. Thanks to their guidance, Scrooge recognizes his faults and greets Christmas morning with a cheerful “Happy Christmas” before spending the day reconnecting and sharing love with those that mean the most to him. Ebenezer and his ghostly encounters come to life in this lavish and thrilling musical adaptation of Charles Dickens’ most well-known story.

Book, Music and Lyrics by Richard O’Brien
 
One fateful night, Brad Majors and Janet Weiss — a wholesome, well-behaved, utterly normal young couple in love — innocently set out to visit an old professor. 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. 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!

Audience participation is encouraged, and patrons are invited to dress up in their favorite Rocky Horror attire.

From John Wilkes Booth to Lee Harvey Oswald, our nation’s most notorious assassins gather on stage to pursue a twisted American Dream. This Tony Award-winning tour-de-force combines Sondheim’s signature blend of intelligent lyricism and stunning music with a panoramic story of our nation’s celebrity culture and the violent ambition to obtain it. Bending the rules of time and space, this one-act historical “revusical” takes us on a nightmarish roller coaster ride in which four assassins and five would-bes from different periods meet, interact and inspire each other to harrowing acts in the name of the American Dream.

Roxy Reads

ROXY READS: Moonlight and Magnolias

[theotherspace]
 
7pm October 16
 
Take a break from our full-size mainstage productions and join us in theotherspace as we continue our Roxy Reads series with a reading of MOONLIGHT AND MAGNOLIAS by Ron Hutchinson. This is the perfect opportunity to sit back and listen to what makes great plays work: the story.

1939 Hollywood is abuzz. Legendary film producer David O. Selznick is five weeks into shooting Gone With the Wind when he realizes the script is awful, and that the director doesn’t have a clue. So what’s an all-powerful movie mogul to do? While fending off the film’s stars, gossip columnists and his own father-in-law, Selznick sends a car for famed screenwriter Ben Hecht and pulls formidable director Victor Fleming from the set of The Wizard of Oz. Summoning both to his office, he locks the doors, closes the shades, and on a diet of bananas and peanuts, the three men, aided by Selznick’s assistant Miss Poppenghul, labor over five days to fashion a screenplay that will become the blueprint for one of the most successful and beloved films of all time.

Stick around after the reading for a talkback with our company of actors, when we will discuss your thoughts, impressions and analyses of the selected work, and then our professional company will weigh in with their opinions to create a dialogue about each piece.

Presented upstairs in theotherspace.
