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!

Check out the next show, A Christmas Carol. Get more info online HERE and buy your tickets!

Holiday Fun

“A Christmas Carol” at Theatre in the Square Brings the Holiday Cheer!

Published

on

Nothing makes me feel more like Christmas is just around the corner than seeing a live performance of “A Christmas Carol.”  We have been fortunate to see it performed all over the country with highlights in Boston at the North Shore Music Theatre and now a wonderful performance at the resurrected Theatre in the Square!

The intimate theater is the perfect setting for a story this classic. Even if you are sitting in the back, you will still get a great view and feel the story just fine.

From the opening of the story, through the highly appreciated musical numbers, and a wonderful full cast finale, this adaptation is simply delightful.

The cast, comprised of some amazing local talent, is as good as they get! Some of the best and stand out performances go to Bruce Speer as Scrooge, Cindy Copeland  as Christmas Past, Vance West as Bob Cratchit and how could we leave out Davie DeWitt as Tiny Tim!

After the show we talked to the owner of the Theatre, Raul Thomas and he told us this. ” This adaptation by Director Tony Smithey he has been producing in a variety of forms for 18 years. Originally written to tour in schools the running time was about 55 min. With the addition of music and dancing it now runs about an hour and a half with the intermission.
In the production Tony has done a little fleshing out to Scrooge’s relationships with his Mother, his only friend Jacob Marley and his one and only true love Belle. ”

This is a must on our Holiday Fun list so get your tickets now HERE as it opens tonight!

Last night, that little girl witnessed the most amazing thing! A true princess transform on stage and she knew that anything was possible! So, she began to dream some more!

Gen Y Productions presents the Florida premiere of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play The Flick, written by Annie Baker. The Flick will play at the Alexis and Jim Pugh Theater at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts June 19 through July 12.

Set in a rundown movie theater in central Massachusetts, The Flick tells the story of three underpaid employees who mop the floors and attend to one of the last 35-millimeter film projectors in the state. Their tiny battles and not-so-tiny heartbreaks play out in the empty aisles, becoming more gripping than the lackluster, second-run movies on screen. With keen insight and a finely tuned comic eye, The Flick is a hilarious and heart-rending cry for authenticity in a fast-changing world.
