The Roxy Regional Theatre is looking to spread the word of the Bard in a fun, engaging and entertaining way. SLOSHED-SPEARE incorporates an abridged Shakespeare play with some adult beverages thrown in.

With every donation of $5 or more, a player of your choosing gets to pull from our hat an improvised scenario to perform, thus switching up the show on the fly in a highly interactive and fun new way!

Join us while we entertain and educate audiences with a fresh and modern-ish take on the works of the literary lush himself, William Shakespeare.

A brief summary of MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING:

Count Claudio falls in love with Hero, the daughter of his host. Hero’s cousin Beatrice (a confirmed spinster) and Benedict (an eternal bachelor) are each duped into believing the other is in love with them. Claudio is deceived by a malicious plot and denounces Hero as unchaste before they marry. She faints and is believed dead, but recovers to be proved innocent by a chance discovery. Benedict wins Beatrice’s love defending her cousin’s honour, and to his surprise, Claudio is reunited with Hero, who he believed dead.

While SLOSHED-SPEARE incorporates the consumption of alcoholic beverages, we advocate and encourage the need for responsible drinking and designated drivers. Furthermore, we require all players to have a designated driver for every performance.

Book and Lyrics by Steven Sater
Music by Duncan Sheik
Based on the play by Frank Wedekind
 
An electrifying fusion of morality, sexuality and rock ‘n’ roll, SPRING AWAKENING explores the journey from adolescence to adulthood with a poignancy and passion that is illuminating and unforgettable. In 1891 Germany, a world where the grown-ups hold all the cards, the beautiful young Wendla explores the mysteries of her body and wonders aloud where babies come from … until Mama tells her to shut it and put on a proper dress. Elsewhere, the brilliant and fearless young Melchior interrupts a mind-numbing Latin drill to defend his buddy, Moritz – a boy so traumatized by puberty that he can’t concentrate on anything, much to the chagrin of the Headmaster. One afternoon, in a private place in the woods, Melchior and Wendla meet by accident and soon find within themselves a desire unlike anything they’ve ever felt. Through their struggles, the youth discover a new world of feeling and freedom outside their classrooms with beautiful and devastating consequences.

PLEASE NOTE: SPRING AWAKENING IS RECOMMENDED FOR MATURE AUDIENCES ONLY. This production contains profanity, smoking, fog effects, partial nudity, simulated violence and intimacy, and subject matter relating to physical assault / domestic abuse, suicide, abortion, and death.

Almost Maine

Almost, Maine

7pm March 27,28, April 3,4
 
By John Cariani
 
Welcome to Almost, Maine, a place that’s so far north, it’s almost not in the United States. It’s almost in Canada. And it’s not quite a town, because its residents never got around to getting organized. So it almost doesn’t exist. One cold, clear winter night, as the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, the residents of Almost, Maine, find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend — almost — in this delightful midwinter night’s dream.

This production is being presented in theotherspace, our 70-seat black box theatre located upstairs at the Roxy.

A brief summary of ROMEO & JULIET:

An age-old vendetta between two powerful families erupts into bloodshed. A group of masked Montagues risk further conflict by gatecrashing a Capulet party. A young lovesick Romeo Montague falls instantly in love with Juliet Capulet, who is due to marry her father’s choice, the County Paris. With the help of Juliet’s nurse, the women arrange for the couple to marry the next day, but Romeo’s attempt to halt a street fight leads to the death of Juliet’s own cousin, Tybalt, for which Romeo is banished. In a desperate attempt to be reunited with Romeo, Juliet follows the Friar’s plot and fakes her own death. The message fails to reach Romeo, and believing Juliet dead, he takes his life in her tomb. Juliet wakes to find Romeo’s corpse beside her and kills herself. The grieving family agree to end their feud.

By Richard Greenberg
 
It’s April 1st, 1919, and the young independent publisher John Pace Seavering is setting up his office: a couple of dilapidated rooms in a romantic Manhattan tower. With only enough capital to put out one book, John finds himself besieged by two authors. Denny McCleary, John’s brash and gifted college friend, has produced a manuscript so unruly it lives in a trio of crates. Denny has a surprise imperative: He’s fallen in love with the enchanting heiress Rosamund Plinth, and if John doesn’t agree to publish his book today, he’ll lose her forever. But John is also being strenuously lobbied by Jessie Brewster, the popular black jazz singer who is also John’s very secret mistress. She’s written her memoirs and is determined to have her story known. As John temporizes with these two, another drama is playing out in the anteroom: A machine of mysterious provenance and purpose has arrived and is spewing out stacks of pages while John’s hapless assistant, Gidger, strives vainly to stem the flood. What’s written on these pages will throw John’s every hope and plan into disarray.

Inspired by Motown and R&B legends of the 1960s and ’70s, DREAMGIRLS follows the rising stardom of the Dreamettes, an all-girl singing trio from Chicago. The three best friends — the phenomenally talented, but demanding Effie White, the beautiful and appealing Deena Jones, and the eager, romantic Lorrell Robinson — team up with driven, demanding manager Curtis Taylor, who is determined to see their — and his — star rise. As their careers begin to take off, changes are made to ensure their mass appeal to the pop market. Egos are bruised, tempers flare, and hearts are broken in pursuit of stardom. Inspired by the stories of groups such as The Supremes and The Shirelles and featuring many iconic classic songs, this hit musical is a love letter to American R&B music and the artists that make such music great.

In a new comedy from the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright of Ruined, Lynn Nottage draws upon the screwball films of the 1930s to take a funny and irreverent look at racial stereotypes in Hollywood. BY THE WAY, MEET VERA STARK is a seventy-year journey through the life of Vera Stark, a headstrong African American maid and budding actress, and her tangled relationship with her boss, a white Hollywood star desperately grasping to hold on to her career. When circumstances collide and both women land roles in the same Southern epic, the story behind the cameras leaves Vera with a surprising and controversial legacy scholars will debate for years to come.

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.

Comedian Jerry Halliday with Twinky Boy

[Mainstage]
 
7:30pm October 8
 
He’s out of the closet, out of control and out-rageous! Twinky Boy is “The World’s Gayest PUPPET with a hand stuck UP IT!”

No strings attached and no holds barred, Twinky Boy turns up the heat and burns down the house! He’s hilariously over-the-top and brought to astonishing life by skilled comedian-puppeteer Jerry Halliday, whose laugh-packed stage appearances have demolished audiences with comedy dynamite in such big-name hotel casinos as Bally’s, Rio, Harrah’s, Resorts and others in Las Vegas and Atlantic City, as well as comedy clubs, cabarets and theatres nationwide.

Twinky Boy travels the entertainment circuit with Halliday’s other madcap maniacs Granny Goodtimes, Sista Girl, and the Not-So-Holy Nun.

The critics are unanimous: The Las Vegas-Review Journal raves “Jerry Halliday gives a strong polished act with a lot of laughs, brisk barbs, rapid-fire repa comedy material.” The Reno Gazette said “Jerry Halliday pulls out all the stops, pausing only for laughs.” According to the Boston Globe, Jerry is “bawdily funny and not to be missed.” “A flaming good time!” says South Florida Gay News.

In addition to his casino and club performances, Halliday has long been a hit at resort venues in Key West, Fire Island, Russian River, Rehoboth Beach, Douglas Dunes and broke box office records in three ten-week summer seasons at one of the world’s crown jewels of vacation destinations, Provincetown, Massachusetts.

With every donation of $5 or more from you, our audience, our players can receive life-saving sustenance in the form of a shot of top-shelf liquor. Thus, they become inebriated throughout the performance, not only for your entertainment but, more importantly, for your education. Join us while we entertain and educate audiences with a fresh and modern-ish take on the works of the literary lush himself, William Shakespeare.

A brief summary of A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM:

Four Athenians run away to the forest only to have Puck the fairy make both of the boys fall in love with the same girl. The four run through the forest pursuing each other while Puck helps his master play a trick on the fairy queen. In the end, Puck reverses the magic, and the two couples reconcile and marry.

While SLOSHED-SPEARE incorporates the consumption of alcoholic beverages, we advocate and encourage the need for responsible drinking and designated drivers. Furthermore, we require all players to have a designated driver for every performance. If you or someone you know is struggling with addiction, please call the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s National Helpline at 1-800-662-4357.

Book by James Lapine
Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
 
“Be careful what you wish for” seems to be the ongoing theme in Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s Brothers Grimm inspired musical, INTO THE WOODS. The story follows The Baker and his wife who wish to have a child, Cinderella who wishes to go to the King’s Festival, and Jack who wishes his cow would give some milk. When The Baker and his wife are visited by the neighborhood witch, who reveals to them that she placed a curse on their family, the two set off on a journey into the woods to reverse the curse, along the way meeting a host of characters including Little Red, the Wolf, Rapunzel, and two princes. By the end of the first act, everyone has gotten their wish and will seemingly live happily ever after… but in Act II, when Jack’s beanstalk brings them a visit from an angry Giant, we see how the consequences of their actions haunt them in disastrous ways.
