TBB: You have been involved in this industry yourself for quite some time, can you tell us a little more about you?
Roxanne: I began working in professional theatre at age 18. I have done everything from sweeping the stage to Directing and Producing . For several years I ran my own independent production company. There is a touch of irony here as my very first theatre job is very similar to the one I hold now; running the office during the day as box office manager and work in the theatre at night Directing as well as Acting. I will be appearing in the title role of Driving Miss Daisy here, in January and Directing Vagina Monologues in March.
TBB: How have the local businesses in the Marietta Square been helping and supporting you?
Roxanne: Local businesses especially in the square itself have been very excited and supportive about the reopening of the theatre. Dupree’s Antiques has been very kind about has been displaying our posters and loaning some lovely things to use in our shows. In the square itself, all the business have been very kind to help us with promotion. We are currently building reciprocal relationships within the square and the community as a whole.
Thank you to Raul and Roxanne for making us feel like home at the Theatre and we look forward to many more performance and great things from you all there!
