Our regular season includes seven shows selected to appeal to a wide range of tastes and ages. While many shows feature well-known storylines and characters, we also offer shows designed to stretch your artistic experience and introduce young people to new forms of theater. Each regular season show lasts approximately one hour without an intermission. Regular season shows feature open seating, which means guests choose their seats upon arrival.
The Rose presents two premium event shows each season. These shows often feature the latest theatrical hits, larger casts, live orchestras, more complex staging and an overall enhanced theater experience.
