The Rose Brigade

The Rose Brigade Photo

The Rose Brigade is an elite group of musical theater performers who perform pre-shows before select mainstage productions and, in some cases, participate in local and regional competitions.

The highlight of the Rose Brigade year is their trip to the Junior Theater Festival, a nationwide convention featuring musical theater students from across the country, with workshops, classes and competitions led by the top musical theater professionals in the world.

Mini Rose Brigade!

Mini Rose Brigade is a way for our youngest students (Grades 1-3) to learn the performance skills needed to be a future member of our traveling Rose Brigade troupes. The Mini Rose Brigade will learn a full musical piece (just like our other Brigades) and will perform at local events, but will not travel outside of Omaha.
