Statements
Mission The mission of Roxy Productions, Inc. (Roxy Regional Theatre) is to produce professional live theatre and promote the arts, with an emphasis on education, in Clarksville, Middle Tennessee and the Southeast.  Our vision is to create an opportunity for all citizens in Clarksville, Middle Tennessee and the Southeast to explore and participate in all facets of the arts.
Background From our founding in 1983, Roxy Productions, Inc., has been dedicated to producing theatre meeting the highest artistic standards, first as a community theatre and then as a professional regional theatre, presenting over 500 mainstage productions in our 153-seat auditorium and 75 alternative stage productions in our 50-seat black box theatre, theotherspace, since the organization's inception. Clarksville's oldest and only professional live theatre, housed in a converted 1947 movie house, the Roxy Regional Theatre has achieved a national reputation over the past three decades by producing world and American premieres in addition to classics, Shakespeare, dramas and musicals.

Since 1985, we have been enriching, enlivening and enlightening students through reduced-rate weekday matinees of productions designed to complement the curricula of K-12 schools, giving area students the opportunity to see their favorite literary characters come to life upon the stage.

In addition to our live theatre programming, the Roxy introduces hundreds of youth to the art of performance through our School of the Arts acting program on Saturday mornings during the school year and our Parks & Rec Summer Playhouse during the summer months.

In the fall of 2016, the Roxy Regional Theatre welcomed the return of film to the location for the first time in over three decades during our weekly Sunday afternoon film series, and we also began offering outside performers and users the opportunity to rent and use the space for everything from birthday parties and weddings to conferences and outside performances.

In tandem with our performing arts offerings, the visual arts are showcased in our Peg Harvill Art Gallery, which gives voice to numerous local artists in twelve shows annually. As the artwork changes for each production, the audience and other visitors are exposed to a variety of artistic styles, as well as artwork created specifically to accompany a production.
Impact
ROXY REGIONAL THEATRE: SEASON 35

As one of the most highly respected regional theatres, the Roxy Regional Theatre is currently celebrating 34 years of producing live theatre on the corner of Franklin and First in downtown Clarksville and is poised to enter our 35th season, with a diverse range of shows planned for the upcoming 2017-2018 season on the mainstage of our 153-seat converted movie house theatre and in theotherspace, our 50-seat black box theatre located upstairs in the old balcony space.
 
 
FILM SERIES

Beyond our live performance offerings, we recently welcomed the return of film to the Roxy Regional Theatre for the first time in over three decades. Sponsored by Planters Bank, with additional support provided by the Clarksville-Montgomery County Arts & Heritage Development Council, our Planters Bank Presents... film series features vintage flicks and modern classics, presented on Sunday afternoons in our 153-seat auditorium for a $5 ticket price. Films presented this past fall and slated for the spring have included The Wizard of Oz, It's A Wonderful Life, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Mary Poppins, Toy Story, Casablanca, Gone with the Wind, Beauty and the Beast, Citizen Kane and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, among others.

While response has already been very positive with a number of sold-out showings since we began the film series, we hope to reach even more in the community with our 2017-2018 film season, especially families and those on fixed incomes who are looking for inexpensive entertainment options.
 
 
RENTALS / OUTSIDE PERFORMERS

Also in recent months, for the first time in our 34-year history, the Roxy Regional Theatre began offering outside performers and users the opportunity to rent and use the space for everything from birthday parties and weddings to conferences and outside performances. Marquee personalization is also available for a fee. With a great response and numerous rentals for weddings, holiday parties and meetings in the brief time since the option has been offered, we hope to book many more rentals in the upcoming season, as scheduling allows.

Since offering the theatre for bookings by outside performers, we recently hosted three sold-out performances of a national comedy tour featuring legendary comedian Gallagher, along with Artie Fletcher and Bob Nelson. This event, in particular, drew a multitude of new patrons who had never previously set foot in the Roxy Regional Theatre. Restaurants in the downtown area, namely Edward’s Steakhouse and the Blackhorse, benefited from this influx of people who enjoyed dinner prior to the show, and area shops garnered additional business during these weeknight performances. In light of the success of the Gallagher shows for the Roxy as well as downtown businesses, we hope to book more outside performers in the upcoming season.
