The Arts

This posting will start with a little motherly bragging. Today, unfortunately, is the last opportunity for you to experience my brilliant Shakespearean actor-son in his role as Lucius in Julius Caesar. It's a role he shared with three other talented young men at The Roxy Regional Theatre. I had the opportunity to see him perform on Wednesday along with about 140 local high school students. The Roxy's commitment to education and community is evident year round, but especially through their curriculum matinees, which they frequently take on the road for schools unable to get downtown to their location on 1st and Franklin. Live theatre brings Shakespeare and other classics to life, benefiting the students in numerous ways. If you can't make it to the matinee today, I encourage you to look into the upcoming performances at The Roxy.

In addition to the performing arts on Franklin Street, you'll find other opportunities for arts edification in the downtown area. Tonight, from 6 pm - 8 pm you can bid on original works of art donated by Clarksville's finest artist for the Annual Downtown Artists' Co-op Art Auction . The event will be held at The Smith-Trahern.

Tune in later for more on the arts. A friend of mine inspired another concept.

Thanks for your indulgence.
