A Personal Connection

by RoxyRegionalTheatre on June 2, 2011

John Denver. The name resonates something deep inside me. The man, the music, and the life begs us all to stop, breathe, and take a good look at our place in this world. It brings to life the beauty of our home on earth. It pierces your heart with love and loss. It allows your […]

A New Show Begins

by RoxyRegionalTheatre on June 1, 2011

I’m so excited to be back in Clarksville. Mainly to be working on a new show with a great cast of friends whom I’ve gotten close to. I am very proud of the way Civil War went and the performances of the actors, but am really enjoying this new show a lot. The music is […]

Take it from me….

by RoxyRegionalTheatre on May 31, 2011

I started taking acting lessons at the Roxy Regional Theatre five years ago when I was only twelve years old. My first day of acting class, I didn’t know anyone. I was so nervous and had no idea what to expect. Everyone there seemed to be so good at acting and knew so much about […]

Thank God I’m A Country Boy

by RoxyRegionalTheatre on May 30, 2011

Happy Memorial Day to all! For me it brings the start of my forth and final show of this contract at the Roxy. Today we begin to embark on the journey that is Almost Heaven, and this Long Island boy is lucky enough to be portraying the man himself: John Denver. Not only do I […]

Creating a Family

by RoxyRegionalTheatre on May 6, 2011

I can’t believe how wonderful this cast is! I have never been more impressed with the talent level and openness of an entire cast like I have with this one. Everyone is so supportive and collaborative; it makes for a really great environment to grow as a performer. And on top of that, the staff […]

Back in Clarksville

by RoxyRegionalTheatre on April 21, 2011

Hey Clarksville! I spent the month between Ain’t Misbehavin’ and starting rehearsals for The Civil War in my hometown of NYC. I wish I could say it was a vacation but I was doing what all serious actors must do: auditioning. March in NY is always the craziest time of the year to audition for […]

Clarksville is Rich in the History of the Civil War

by RoxyRegionalTheatre on April 19, 2011

I am so excited to be working at the Roxy Regional Theatre here in Clarksville, TN. Especially in “Civil War.” I have had a huge fascination with Civil War history since I was in middle school. I even wrote a play in fifth grade about a drummer boy in the war. It wasn’t very good […]

Hello from the East Coast!

by RoxyRegionalTheatre on April 19, 2011

Freedom!! Freedom!!! Freedom is the cry of Frederick Douglass, a black man born of a white man and black slave. Civil War, the Musical is a dramatic depiction of life for civilians, slaves and soldiers during the Civil War. It was time of great loss for the quest of Freedom. Personally, I am honored to […]

All the Way from Columbus

Hello folks! My name is Michael Quinechett and I’m thrilled to be here at the Roxy Regional Theatre during the Sesquicentennial of the Civil War and doing a musical commemorating this historical event! What an opportunity for all of us to be entertained and educated at the same time. I’m originally from and still reside […]

Goodbyes Lead to Hellos

by RoxyRegionalTheatre on April 14, 2011

Saturday night was spent saying goodbye to the wonderful cast of Beautiful in the Extreme and by Sunday afternoon I’d acquainted myself with my new housemates for the run of Civil War. There is a definite switch going from Hamlet and ‘Beautiful’, two very in depth plays, to a musical. It’s a change that is […]
