UPDATED MONDAY, APRIL 20 AT 8:20 AM

The Sound of Music cancelled due to COVID-19

We regret that due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, The Rose Theater will be unable to bring you our production of The Sound of Music; this production has been cancelled due to coronavirus and social distancing requirements.

We would like to offer ticket holders three options for compensation for Sound of Music tickets:

  • Convert your tickets into a donation to The Rose Theater.
    If you are able, we would welcome the donation of your tickets to help support The Rose and keep #OmahaStrong in this uncertain time. It is through your generosity that we can assure The Rose’s future as an important cultural icon in the Omaha community. We will be happy to send you a tax receipt for this donation.

  • Receive a credit on your Rose account.
    We can also credit your account for the amount of your tickets, to be used for future purchases with The Rose. You may transfer the price of your tickets to be used towards a 2020-21 Rose membership, or for tickets to the 2020 holiday production of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella or our exciting 2021 summer musical (which will be announced soon).

  • Receive a refund for the total price paid for your tickets via mail.
    If you prefer, we can also process a refund for you, if that is in the best interest of your family. Refunds may take up to 30 days to process.

Whatever option is best for your family, please notify The Rose Box Office at (402) 345-4849 or info@rosetheater.org about your preference by Friday, May 1. Please note that due to limited staff, our response time may be longer than usual.

The stage lights at The Rose may be dimmed right now during this uncertain time of the global pandemic, but we look forward to the day when our seats are again filled with happy families, spending quality time together, roaring with laughter at the madcap adventures unfolding on stage.

But rest assured, this is just an intermission!

The show will go on. Even now, we are busy planning a fun and exciting slate of shows for your family to enjoy in 2020-21. The lights will again shine bright on our stage, and we cannot wait to welcome you back to The Rose. It won’t be long before this crisis has ended and the lights of The Rose again glow as a new production bursts to life onstage. And when it does, we can’t wait to welcome you back to The Rose.

Until that day, we hope your family is safe and well. We will see you again soon!

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact The Rose at info@rosetheater.org.

The Rose Theater’s Response to COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Keeping Our Community Safe

As the COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) situation continues to develop, The Rose is closely following the lead of our city, state and federal officials as we implement strategies recommended by public health authorities and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) to ensure the health and well-being of our audience, artists and staff.

Following the recommendations from the local health department, the City of Omaha and the State of Nebraska, Rose Theater events and programs will go on as scheduled. UPDATE 3/13/2020: The Rose has decided to cancel all performances and classes until March 26, 2020.

The Rose remains open and all regular business operations,
performances and classes are proceeding as usual.

Each individual is strongly encouraged to practice the recommended steps of good hygiene to reduce their own exposure to any virus.

The Rose is taking increased measures for our audiences, artists, guests and staff, including:

  • Requesting that artists, staff, visitors and audience members stay home if they feel ill and not return until they are symptom-free. Anyone who is experiencing cold or flu symptoms, especially if you have a fever or problems breathing, is encouraged to stay home and seek appropriate medical advice. The Rose has always had a flexible exchange policy; fees may apply. Please contact the Box Office at (402) 345-4849 for details.
  • Increasing our cleaning frequency of high-traffic areas and high-touch items, including door handles, elevator buttons, stair handrails, and bathroom areas.
  • Disinfecting and the wiping down of all public areas every day before performances.
  • Recycled program books are not being re-used for at least 72 hours

This is a dynamic and fast-changing situation. As we continue to monitor information from the Center for Disease Control, Department of Health and other governmental agencies, we will provide ongoing updates as necessary. Should a need to cancel performances or classes arise, we will communicate these schedule changes through the same methods that snow delays/cancellations are communicated, with updates via our website, social media and local media outlets.

The Rose will continue to rely upon the advice of health experts as we make future decisions. We remain vigilant, and we are prepared to make decisions based on current recommendations, as well as in response to changing conditions. We appreciate your cooperation as we work through this situation together. We will continue to update this page as more information becomes available.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact The Rose at (402) 345-4849.
