Roxy Regional Theatre

Clarskville's Roxy Regional TheatreClarksville, TN – Funny, outrageous, emotionally affecting and occasionally angry … Eve Ensler’s wildly popular series of monologues about women and performed by women is back for the seventeenth year with the Roxy Regional Theatre’s presentation of “The Vagina Monologues”, January 18th – February 2nd.

This year, members of the theatre’s professional company and special guests from the community will take the stage of theotherspace, the 50-seat black-box theatre located upstairs at the Roxy, in readings of these monologues based on interviews Eve Ensler conducted with 200 women about their views on sex, relationships and violence against women.

Brooke Leigh Davis, Emma Jordan and Alexandra West star alongside locals in Eve Ensler's "The Vagina Monologues" in the Roxy Regional Theatre's theotherspace, January 18th-February 2nd.

Cast

  • Brooke Leigh Davis, a Roxy newcomer who will also be appearing in the upcoming mainstage productions of Charlotte’s Web and The All Night Strut!;
  • Emma Jordan, who will be starring as Charlotte in the upcoming mainstage production of Charlotte’s Web;
  • Melissa Schaffner, marketing director at Fort Campbell MWR;
  • Nicolette Tomaszewski, clinical therapist at the Clarksville Sexual Assault Center;
  • Alexandra West, whom audiences may remember as Magenta in The Rocky Horror Show this past fall;

An Obie Award-winning whirlwind tour of a forbidden zone, “The Vagina Monologues” introduces a wildly divergent gathering of female voices, including a six-year-old girl, a septuagenarian New Yorker, a vagina workshop participant, a woman who witnesses the birth of her granddaughter, a Bosnian survivor of rape, and a feminist happy to have found a man who “liked to look at it.”

In an interview with women.com, Ensler said that her fascination with vaginas began because of “growing up in a violent society.” “Women’s empowerment is deeply connected to their sexuality.” She also stated, “I’m obsessed with women being violated and raped, and with incest. All of these things are deeply connected to our vaginas.”

Contributions will be collected each night for the Clarksville Sexual Assault Center, which provides counseling and support to children and adult victims of sexual abuse and community education programs to reduce the risk of victimization. To learn more, visit www.sacenter.org.

“The Vagina Monologues” is presented in theotherspace, the 50-seat black-box theatre located upstairs at the Roxy, and plays at 8:00pm for six nights only: January 18th, 19th, 25th, 26th, February 1st and 2nd. Due to language and content, this production is recommended for mature audiences only.
