Book by Thomas Meehan and Mark O’Donnell
Music and Lyrics by Adam Schlesinger and David Javerbaum
Based on the Universal Pictures film written and directed by John Waters
 
It’s 1954. Everyone likes Ike, nobody likes communism and Wade “Cry-Baby” Walker is the coolest boy in Baltimore. He’s a bad boy with a good cause – truth, justice and the pursuit of rock and roll. Cry-Baby and the square rich girl Allison are star-crossed lovers at the center of this world. Fueled by hormones and the new rhythms of rock and roll, she turns her back on her squeaky clean boyfriend, Baldwin, to become a “drape” (a Baltimore juvenile delinquent) and Cry-Baby’s moll. At the other end of the topsy-turvy moral meritocracy of 1954 America, Baldwin is the king of the squares and leads his close-harmony pals against the juvenile delinquents, who are ultimately arrested for arson, sending the drapes all off to prison. It’s Romeo and Juliet meets High School Hellcats.

By Dominique Morisseau
 
In 1967 Detroit, Motown music is getting the party started, and Chelle and her brother Lank are making ends meet by turning their basement into an after-hours joint. But when a mysterious woman finds her way into their lives, the siblings clash over much more than the family business. As their pent-up feelings erupt, so does their city, and they find themselves caught in the middle of the ’67 riots.

Conceived and Originally Directed by John Tebelak
 
A small group of people help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques and hefty doses of comic timing. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, is employed as the story of Jesus’ life dances across the stage. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, Jesus’ messages of kindness, tolerance and love come vibrantly to life. Led by the international hit “Day by Day,” GODSPELL features a parade of beloved songs, including “Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord,” “Learn Your Lessons Well,” “All for the Best,” “All Good Gifts,” “Turn Back, O Man” and “By My Side.”

By Tony Kushner
 
ANGELS IN AMERICA, Part One: Millennium Approaches, is the story of a gay man, Prior Walter, a 30-year-old New Yorker whose lover, Louis, abandons him when he falls ill with AIDS. Transcendent forces — visions and angels — help transform Prior from a man dying of AIDS to a man living with AIDS. Along the way, several romantic and platonic couples come apart, and the final social configuration of the play comprises a loose band of multigenerational, multiracial, queer friends. In the end, Prior delivers a blessing to the audience in favor of “more life.”

Please note: ANGELS IN AMERICA contains strong language, sexual content, brief nudity and adult situations which may not be suitable for all audiences. This production also utilizes fog effects and pulsating lighting effects.

His comedy club magic talents landed him a spot on America’s Got Talent Season 7, and now Sean Ridgeway is bringing his comedy-magic experience to the Roxy Regional Theatre!

Full of high-energy, engaging and interactive magic, audience members are used in almost every routine performed. This is definitely NOT the same old stuff you’ve seen before!

Sean Ridgeway started in magic at the age of 10 and has been passionate about it ever since. During his middle school and high school years, he performed at birthday parties and local charity events and, in 2011 while in college, Sean toured the state of Georgia, performing professionally at weddings, colleges, children’s hospitals, comedy clubs and restaurants. Close-up magic and magic with everyday objects has always been his passion, but after exposure to the comedy club circuit, he spent years creating a comedy magic show, picking up ventriloquism, pick-pocketing, juggling and hypnosis along the way. In 2021, Sean competed at FISM, the world championship of magic. For more information about Sean, visit www.ridgewaymagic.com.

Constellations

Constellations

7pm February 21,22,28, March 1
 
By Nick Payne
 
Suppose that life exists in a multiverse — a set of parallel existences that contain infinitely different futures. The possibilities in our lives are, quite literally, endless. Every possible event that could happen, does happen, in one universe or another. And if two lovers meet — are drawn together in every version of existence — every possible happy ending and heartbreak that could befall them, will. Nick Payne’s beautiful play, CONSTELLATIONS, explores how even the smallest change in our lives can dramatically alter the course we take. It is a spellbinding exploration of love, science, quantum theory, and infinite possibility for heartbreak or for hope.

The inimitable Thomas “Fats” Waller rose to international fame during the Golden Age of the Cotton Club and that jumpin’ new beat, swing music. Although not quite a biography, AIN’T MISBEHAVIN’ evokes the delightful humor and infectious energy of this American original as a versatile cast struts, strums and sings the songs that he made famous in a career that ranged from uptown clubs to downtown Tin Pan Alley to Hollywood and concert stages in the U.S., Canada and Europe.

The Emmy Award-winning 1970s Saturday morning cartoon series that taught history, grammar, math and more through clever, tuneful songs is not only making a small-screen comeback, but also lighting up the stage. SCHOOLHOUSE ROCK LIVE! follows Tom, a nerve-wracked schoolteacher who is nervous about his first day of teaching. He tries to relax by watching TV, when various characters representing facets of his personality emerge from the set and show him how to win his students over with imagination and music, through such songs as “Just a Bill,” “Lolly, Lolly, Lolly” and “Conjunction Junction.”

Told through the point of view of a group of angels, he is met by his guardian angel Clarence, as he contemplates ending his life.

By John Patrick Shanley
 
“What do you do when you’re not sure?” So asks Father Flynn, the progressive and beloved priest at the St. Nicholas Church School in the Bronx, in his sermon. It’s 1964, and things are changing, to the chagrin of rigid principal Sister Aloysius. However, when an unconscionable accusation is leveled against the Father, Sister Aloysius realizes that the only way to get justice is to create it herself. And as for the truth of the matter? As Father Flynn says, “Doubt can be a bond as powerful and sustaining as certainty.” In stunning prose, John Patrick Shanley delves into the murky shadows of moral certainty, his characters always balancing on the thin line between truth and consequences.

What’s wrong with nine-year-old Jesse? He can’t sit still, he curses, he raps, and you can’t get him into — or out of — pajamas. His teacher thinks it’s Attention Deficit Disorder. Dad says, “He’s just a boy!” And Mama’s on a quest for answers. Is Jesse dysfunctional, or just different? Don’t we all have ADD, to some degree? She consults a psychologist, a homeopath, a neuropsychologist, and an environmental physician. She talks to neighbors, whose kids have their own diagnoses. A psychiatrist prescribes Ritalin for Jesse, but surely a pill can’t solve all his problems. A hilarious, provocative and poignant look at a modern family and an epidemic dilemma: Are we so tuned into our 24/7 info-rich world that we’ve tuned out what really matters?

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. 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. Brad, Janet and Frank ‘N’ Furter’s cohorts are swept up into the scientist’s latest experiment. The night’s misadventures will cause Brad and Janet to question themselves, each other, love and lust. A loving homage to the cult-classic, sci-fi film and horror genres with an irresistible rock ‘n’ roll score, THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW 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.

Harriet Tubman was born a slave but, at age twenty-five, she made her perilous escape from a Maryland plantation, leaving her family behind. Pursued by dogs and relentless slave catchers, she followed an escape route laid out by Quakers — secret hiding places in churches, barns, cellars and homes. The escape route that Harriet followed soon became known as the Underground Railroad, and she quickly became one of its most celebrated “conductors.” Up creek beds, through swamps, over hills in the dark of night, on nineteen secret trips, Harriet Tubman guided more than 300 slaves, including her aged parents, to freedom. “I never run my train off the track,” she said, “and I never lost a passenger.”

Roxy Reads: Empanada Loca

By Aaron Mark
 
Take a break from our full-size, mainstage productions and join us as we continue our Roxy Reads series with a reading of EMPANADA LOCA by Aaron Mark. This is the perfect opportunity to sit back and listen to what makes great plays work: the story.

Now living deep under Manhattan in an abandoned subway tunnel with the Mole People, a very hungry Dolores recounts her years selling weed with her boyfriend, her return to Washington Heights after thirteen years in prison, her fortuitous reunion with an old stoner friend who lets her give massages for cash in the basement under his empanada shop, and the bloodbath that sent her fleeing underground. Loosely inspired by the legend of Sweeney Todd and starring Yarissa Tiara Millan, with stage directions read by Stephen Shore, this deliciously creepy one-woman play is contemporary Grand Guignol horror in the style of Spalding Gray.

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

What is it like for a woman when her husband becomes the president of the United States — and she is suddenly thrust into the spotlight? This witty, sly and deeply moving script explores the hopes, fears and loves of Lady Bird Johnson, Pat Nixon and Betty Ford. In three scenes taking place in the family quarters of the White House just prior to the end of living there as the wife of a president, each of the women confides alone to the audience. Secrets are spilled about their early years, their husbands’ rise to power, their romances with the men, their unique paths as wives in the White House, and their feelings about imminent retirement. Each of the three portraits becomes intimate, by degrees, as the women wrestle with what Pat Nixon called “the hardest unpaid job in the world.”

It’s 1955, in a square little town, in a square little state where one girl’s dream and a surprise visit from a mysterious leather-jacketed, guitar-playing stranger help a small town to discover the magic of romance and the power of rock ‘n’ roll. Loosely based on Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, this hip-swiveling, lip-curling musical fantasy will have you jumpin’ out of your blue suede shoes with such classics as “Heartbreak Hotel,” “Hound Dog,” “Jailhouse Rock,” and “Don’t Be Cruel.”

Produced in part by Tim & Kris Lee
