Join Our Post-Performance Q&A Session!
A few minutes after the performance, our actors will conduct a Question & Answer session from the stage. It’s a wonderful opportunity to learn more about the scenery, costumes, special effects, and other aspects of the production. The actors may even have a question or two for you about the story.
Meet the Cast & Get an Autograph!
Some performers will be available after the show to say hello, pose in pictures, and sign their autographs for you. You can meet them on the mezzanine level right outside the entrance to our balcony level seats.
The 5 pm performance on Saturday, October 8 is designated as “sensory-friendly,” which means special accommodations will be made for families attending with a child who has sensory issues. Accommodations will vary, but may include:
- A private room for congregating before the show
- A special reserved seating area
- A private post-show question and answer period
- Reduced ticket prices
A Rose staff member will indicate that a loud or scary moment is about to happen in the show by lifting up a glow stick. This allows children to prepare for a scene that may be overwhelming.
