Legends Bank presents HAIRSPRAY, September 7 – September 29

by RoxyRegionalTheatre on September 4, 2018


The 1950s are out, and change is in the air! Clarksville’s oldest professional theatre enters Season 36 of live entertainment on the corner of Franklin and First in Historic Downtown Clarksville with a Tony Award-winning family-friendly musical, piled bouffant-high with laughter, romance and deliriously tuneful songs.

Legends Bank presents HAIRSPRAY at the Roxy Regional Theatre, beginning this Friday, September 7, at 8:00pm. In keeping with the theatre’s traditional pay-what-you-can opening night, all tickets not pre-sold at the regular ticket price will go on sale at 7:30pm Friday evening for a $5 minimum donation.

In this musical comedy based on John Waters’ 1988 New Line Cinema film, it’s 1962 in Baltimore, and lovable plus-size teen Tracy Turnblad has only one desire — to dance on the popular “Corny Collins Show.” When her dream comes true, Tracy is transformed from social outcast to sudden star, but she must use her newfound power to dethrone the reigning Teen Queen, win the affections of heartthrob Link Larkin, and integrate a TV network … all without denting her ‘do!

Starring Jenna Leigh Miller as Tracy Turnblad and featuring local attorney and board chair Stacy Turner in the role of villain Velma Von Tussle, the cast of HAIRSPRAY also includes Drew Stairs as Corny Collins, Brian Best as Edna Turnblad, Kelly Letourneau as Penny Pingleton, Jessica Caracciolo as Amber Von Tussle, Matthew Combs as Link Larkin, Treston Henderson as Seaweed J. Stubbs, Mikquala Skelton as Little Inez, Jamila Hunter as Motormouth Maybelle, Donald Groves as Wilbur Turnblad and Amy Snider as Prudy Pingleton, with Ian Erbe, Sylvern Groomes Jr., Mairys Joaquin, Sean Kincaid, Jameka Lache, Briar Moroschak, Lauren Proctor and Alexandra West rounding out the ensemble.

Directed and choreographed by Ryan Bowie, HAIRSPRAY is written by Thomas Meehan and Mark O’Donnell, with music by Marc Shaiman and lyrics by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, and is presented through special arrangement with and with musical recordings provided by Music Theatre International (MTI).

In addition to Legends Bank, funding support for HAIRSPRAY has been provided by Jerry & Brenda Bowie, Mary & Rick Konvalinka, Jim Knoll & Jeanine Johnson, Barbara & Larry Goolsby, Dr. Ben & Erin Webber and Randy & Su Whetsell.

On Saturday, September 15, selections from HAIRSPRAY will be presented as part of GALA 36, the Roxy Regional Theatre’s annual fall fundraiser. The event also includes cocktails and a silent auction at 6:00pm, featuring the Ultra Clutch Spraytini by MB Roland Distillery; dinner at 6:30pm, featuring “You Can’t Stop” the Filet of Beef with Roasted “Gar-Link” Mashed Potatoes, Roasted Root Vegetables, “Amber’s Green with Envy” Salad, “Motormouth” Meatballs and Stuffed Celery “Stubbs,” “Mr. Pinky’s” Waffle Bowl and Ice Cream Sundae Bar, and wine by Beachaven Winery; and a live auction featuring signature artist Jane Olson and auctioneer Sammy Stuard at 7:30pm. Tickets are $125 (standard level) and $200 (premier level) with tables seating ten at $1,250 and $1,750 respectively. Premier Level seating includes additional perks including premier dinner seating (as available), limited-edition Beachaven wine glass, limited-edition Season 36 notecards.
