CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – Celebrate 33 years of live entertainment on the corner of Franklin and First in downtown Clarksville with an evening of great food, fine art, a live auction and splendid theater: On Saturday, Sept. 19, Gala 33 will kick off the Roxy Regional Theatre‘s 2015-2016 season of professional theater.
The theater’s annual fundraiser will begin at 6 p.m. with an oyster bar and Harvest Manhattans, compliments of MB Roland Distillery, and a silent auction of diverse and original works by area artists, trips and specialty gift baskets.
At 6:30 p.m. patrons will dine al fresco on June Rubbed Filet of Beef and Crab Cakes; Goat Cheese and Asparagus Risotto; Brandied Pear Salad; and, for dessert, individual servings of Bailey’s Chocolate Fondue. Dinner will be complemented with Beachaven wines.
F&M Bank‘s Sammy Stuard will once again lend his skills to the live auction inside the Roxy at 7:30 p.m. In addition to artwork, this year’s auction will include all-inclusive vacation packages to the People’s Choice Awards in Los Angeles (featuring red carpet viewing, orchestra level tickets, GRAMMY Museum VIP tour, and a three-night stay with airfare for two) and New Orleans (featuring Preservation Hall of Jazz VIP admission, Commander’s Palace jazz brunch or dinner with wine pairing, and a Hyatt French Quarter 3-night stay with airfare for two).
Capping off the evening, this year’s entertainment includes musical selections from Lionel Bart’s “Oliver!” as well as children’s favorite “Go, Dog. Go!” and the ’20s musical revue “Speakeasy” that opens this Friday (Aug. 28) and runs through Sept. 10.
