Sloshed-Speare:
A Midsummer Night’s Dream

[Mainstage]
 
7pm October 5
 
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 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.

Jerry Halliday with Twinky Boy

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.

Where Did We Sit on the Bus

Where Did We Sit on the Bus?

[theotherspace]
 
Due to a conflict between the licensing company and the author of WHERE DID WE SIT ON THE BUS, this production has been postponed to a later date yet to be determined. We apologize for the inconvenience caused by this change in plans, and we appreciate your understanding, patience and support. Ticket holders have been contacted and issued refunds. Please stay tuned to our website for updates regarding rescheduled performance dates.

By Brian Quijada
 
During a third grade lesson on the Civil Rights movement and Rosa Parks, a Latina child raises her hand to ask, “Where did we sit on the bus?” Her teacher can’t answer the question. This autobiographical solo show follows that kid from her childhood to adulthood, as she explores her family’s history, her identity as a first-generation American, and what the world will be like for her future children. Featuring live music that brings together Latin beats, hip-hop and looping, WHERE DID WE SIT ON THE BUS? is a high-energy, tour-de-force theatrical experience that examines what it means to be Latinx in America.

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

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.

She left her day job and began leading classes at Horsefeathers, as well as privately. After a brief stint in framing and a training program to become a yoga instructor, she has put her full energy into her two passions – yoga and art. She is currently a yoga instructor at Shangri-La Hot yoga and leads paint classes at local venues around town as well as privately.

By Lynn Nottage
 
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.

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.

Roxy Reads:
Safe Sex

[Mainstage]
 
7pm February 22
 
Take a break from our full-size mainstage productions and join us as we continue our Roxy Reads series with a reading of SAFE SEX by Harvey Fierstein. This is the perfect opportunity to sit back and listen to what makes great plays work: the story.

Two recently reconciled male lovers confront the challenge of their on-again, off-again relationship in the time of AIDS. Ghee, an aging, congenial gay man, may be using guidelines for safe sex as an excuse for his fading sex drive. This dismays Mead, a virile and no-nonsense blue-collar type. The emotional seesaw of their interactions creates the compelling dynamics of this fascinating short piece.

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.

Sloshed-Speare:
Romeo & Juliet

[Mainstage]
 
7pm March 1
 
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 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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Ray’s swum his way to the eve of the Olympic trials. If he makes the team, he’ll get a deal with Speedo. If he gets a deal with Speedo, he’ll never need a real job. So when someone’s stash of performance-enhancing drugs is found in the locker room fridge, threatening the entire team’s Olympic fate, Ray has to crush the rumors or risk losing everything. A sharp and stylish play about swimming, survival of the fittest, and the American dream of a level playing field — or of leveling the field yourself.

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.

Master Class

7pm April 24,25, May 1,2
 
By Terrence McNally
 
Maria Callas is teaching a master class in front of an audience: us. She’s glamorous, commanding, larger than life — and drop-dead funny. Inspired by a series of master classes the great diva conducted at Juilliard toward the end of her career, MASTER CLASS puts Maria Callas at center stage again as she coaxes, prods and inspires students — “victims” as she calls them — into giving the performances of their lives while revealing her own. As she slips off into memories, we learn about Callas’ affair with Aristotle Onassis; an abortion she was forced to have; her first elderly husband whom she left; her early days as an ugly duckling; the fierce hatred of her rivals; and the unforgiving press that savaged her at first.

His story. His inspiration. His genius. The tapestry of creativity that characterizes Stephen Sondheim remained largely undiscussed, especially by the man himself, until the creation of SONDHEIM ON SONDHEIM. An intimate look at the Father of the Modern Musical, featuring new arrangements of his most beloved work, this “revelatory revue full of wonderful moments” presents a portrait of the famed songwriter in his own words … and music. Ranging from the beloved to the obscure, the carefully selected two-dozen songs hang from a framework of in-depth video interviews, delving into Sondheim’s personal life and artistic process.

Benedict wins Beatrice’s love defending her cousin’s honour, and to his surprise, Claudio is reunited with Hero, who he believed dead.

Musical Arrangements and Orchestrations by David Austin and David Abbinanti
 
After the death of their father, sisters Claudia and DJ return home to deal with their inheritance: a massive and beloved county fair in rural Georgia. Thinking that this could be the cash windfall that they desperately seek, the sisters plan to sell off the fair land to the highest bidder, then high-tail it back to civilization. But when Claudia starts to fall in love with the fair, the townsfolk and an over-apologetic board member, her heart leads her away from her sister and down a path she’s unprepared for. Needing the money to pay off a large, secret gambling debt, DJ must do whatever it takes to sell the fair – even if that means sabotaging her sister’s new romantic relationship. Betrayals, imposters and mistaken identity lead to sister battling sister in a winner-take-all Messina County Dixie Derby competition to save the fair. Inspired by Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing and full of all your favorite country hits like “Chicken Fried,” “Hey Good Lookin’,” “The House That Built Me,” “Thank God I’m a Country Boy” and so many others, COUNTY FAIR is a new musical comedy about sisters, community and being proud of where you come from.

Based on the books by Arnold Lobel
 
The treasured characters from Arnold Lobel’s beloved children’s books hop from page to stage in this streamlined kid-friendly version of the beautiful Broadway musical about a friendship that endures throughout the seasons. Part vaudeville, part make-believe and all charm, this whimsical musical follows two great friends — the cheerful, popular Frog, and the rather grumpy Toad — through four fun-filled seasons. Waking from hibernation, Frog and Toad plant gardens, swim, rake leaves, go sledding and learn life lessons along the way. Throughout the year, the two best friends celebrate and rejoice in the differences that make them unique and special. Children and adults alike will relish in the joyful vignettes of A YEAR WITH FROG AND TOAD Kids, which feature catchy tunes, funny dialogue and bright, memorable characters.

This production is being presented by youth from the Roxy Regional Theatre’s School of the Arts.
