Clarskville's Roxy Regional TheatreClarksville, TN – How’s a queen to keep her head in the middle of a revolution? This month, Clarksville’s oldest professional theatre, the Roxy Regional Theatre, is taking audiences from Versailles to the guillotine with a stylistic and satirical retelling of the life and final days of the most famous queen of France.

A contemporary twist on a historical tale, David Adjmi’s “Marie Antoinette” opens at the Roxy Regional Theatre on Friday, April 12th, at 8:00pm.

In keeping with the theatre’s traditional pay-what-you-can opening night, all tickets not pre-sold at the full price will go on sale at 7:30pm that evening for a $5.00 minimum donation.

Lucy Given stars as Marie, a confection created by a society that values extravagance and artifice, who delights and inspires her French subjects with her three-foot tall wigs and extravagant haute couture. But times change and even the most fashionable queens go out of style. As revolution brews and France’s love affair with the royals sours, the political suddenly becomes very personal for Marie.

From the light and breezy banter at the palace to the surging chants of “Liberte, Egalite, Fraternite!” in the streets, David Adjmi’s humorous and haunting take on the doomed young queen of France holds a mirror up to our contemporary society that might just be entertaining itself to death.

“Marie Antoinette” also features Ryan Bowie as her husband Louis XVI, Brian Best as her brother Joseph, Jeffrey Keller as love interest Axel Fersen, Charlie Olita as her young son, Alexandra West as false friend Yolande de Polignac, Caitie L. Moss as true friend Therese de Lamballe, Ian Alexander Erbe as a talking sheep, and David Graham as a group of revolutionaries.

“Marie Antoinette” is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc., and is produced in part by Stuart & Peggy Bonnington and John & Cathy Stanton.

Due to strong language and adult situations, this production is intended for mature audiences only.

Performances run April 12th through April 27th on Thursdays at 7:00pm and Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00pm, with a 2:00pm matinee on Saturday, April 20th.

Tickets are $25.00 (adults) and $15.00 (ages 13 and under) and may be reserved online at www.roxyregionaltheatre.org, by phone at 931.645.7699, or at the theatre during regular box office hours (9:00am to 2:00pm, Monday through Friday, and one hour prior to curtain). Military, APSU students and CitySaver coupon holders can receive two tickets for the price of one to Thursday performances during the run.
