Clarksville, TN – We’re looking to spread the word of the Bard in a fun, engaging and entertaining way with our new series here at the Roxy Regional Theatre. “Sloshed-Speare” incorporates an abridged Shakespeare play — with some adult beverages thrown in!
Next up is “The Taming of the Shrew” this coming Wednesday, January 18th at 7:00pm. Lucentio loves Bianca but cannot court her until her shrewish older sister Katherina marries. The eccentric Petruccio marries the reluctant Katherina and uses a number of tactics to render her an obedient wife. Lucentio marries Bianca and, in a contest at the end, Katherina proves to be the most obedient wife.
With every donation of $5.00 or more from you all in our audience, our players — members of our staff and professional company — can receive life-saving sustenance in the form of liquid libation. Thus, they become inebriated throughout the performance, not only for your entertainment but, more importantly, for your education. Join us while we entertain and educate audiences with a fresh and modern-ish take on the works of the literary lush himself, William Shakespeare!
While “Sloshed-Speare” incorporates the consumption of alcoholic beverages, we advocate and encourage the need for responsible drinking and designated drivers. Furthermore, we require all players to have a designated driver for every performance. If you or someone you know is struggling with addiction, please call the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s National Helpline at 1.800.662-4357.
