What to expect when you return to The Rose

For generations, The Rose has been a trusted friend for children and families.

We may be doing things a little differently this season, but our commitment to you is still the same.

Throughout this pandemic and in the days that follow, we promise that we will continue to be the place where families can be inspired by the magic of theater.

As our community begins to re-open, we re-commit to being a place where your family can enjoy the performing arts safely and securely.

From onstage performances to classroom experiences, we are dedicated to the health and well-being of every individual — young people, parents, grandparents, educators, artists and staff. This may mean that you encounter some changes during your Rose experience, and we ask for your cooperation and partnership with us to ensure the safety of everyone involved.

Here are just a few examples of our commitment to your safety:

In order to minimize contact points, families are asked to enter The Rose using the doors on 20th Street and exit onto Farnam Street. Floor markers will indicate safe distances for families to stand while waiting in line. Inside the lobby, we ask that families move directly to their seats and follow all instructions given by ushers and Rose staff.

 

In order to maintain social distancing between groups, audiences will enter through the center aisle and be directed to specific seats on a first come, first served basis. Seating groups will be spaced at least six feet apart. Audience members will exit using the side aisles only.

Additional Safety Precautions:
