Roxy Regional Theatre kicked off their new season by hosting the Roxy Gala 34. The event took place Saturday, September 24, 2016 at the historic theatre on the corner of Franklin Street.
Supporters gathered under a large tent to dine on great food, enjoy live music and bid on fine art at the theatres silent auction. The guests were later treated to an excerpt from Million Dollar Quartet, one of the new performances taking the stage this season.
The Million Dollar Quartet musical was inspired by Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins. The musical has been met with standing ovations and rave reviews throughout its run. The Roxy has six talented actors who brought the production to life, eager to show off their hard work.
Ticket sales were slightly down, but the event was pushed back a week from the previous year, competing with various other events happening in Clarksville that day.
Tomato fritters and summer skewer appetizers were served while guests viewed and bid on the silent auction items. After their catered dinner, the guests moved into the theatre for the live auction and comments from Stacy Turner and Ryan Bowie. The auction was followed by selections from Million Dollar Quartet.
Chartwells catered the event, MB Roland Distillery provided cocktails, wines by Beachaven Winery and table arrangements were made by Sango Village Florist.
