2020-21 Season

This is the time to come together as a unified community. The past few months have given us drama and suspense to rival even the greatest theatrical moments. The Rose stood strong, putting our content online, waving at children in a community un-parade, serving as a safe space and more. Now, more than ever, we need to stand together as a united community. We at The Rose call upon you, our family of members, patrons and donors, to help The Rose continue our mission of inspiring young people to make their world a better place through the magic of theater -- a mission that is more important now than ever.

A “Mini-Season” that is full of fun!

The Rose Theater is proud to offer a special one-of-a-kind mini-season for 2020-21. This temporarily-abbreviated season will allow members more opportunities to attend performances and work around any necessary changes in schedules.

NEW in 2020-2021!
Watch Rose performances from the comfort
and safety
of your own home with a digital membership!


Scroll over each show below for a synopsis or click the show logo for details about each production.

In this all-original wild onstage adventure, a young girl named Vita sets off on a magical journey to find Joel Sartore through his photographs. She wants to ask him which species is the most interesting on earth. What she finds along the way through friendly encounters with bears, frogs and even sea turtles, is a much bigger truth about humanity’s role in solving seemingly intractable problems. Funny, heartwarming and visually rich, this play by Omaha playwright Ellen Struve is sure to inspire your entire family!

The 2020-21 season is filled with stories of inspiration: characters overcoming challenges and improving the world. The real adventure, however, is playing out beyond our stage and our lobby, in real life, throughout our community and the world. The Rose will see its happy ending through the pandemic, but we are relying on people like you. By joining The Rose and supporting our mission, you are the hero of this story.

Enjoy the magic of The Rose in person OR online!

We know the world is uncertain right now. While we cannot predict what will happen during the 2020-21 season, we want you to be able to enjoy Rose performances, whatever the future holds.

During the 2020-21 season, if circumstances require The Rose to cancel a performance, we have made arrangements with a professional videographer to record a high-quality video of most member shows. This video, featuring engaging, high-definition images, dynamic film-quality editing of close-ups and wide angles, will be made available to members in the event that we cannot physically welcome you into our building.

In addition, we are also offering a digital-only ticket package, giving your family a front-row seat to The Rose — right from the comfort and safety of your living room! This option is perfect for families who want to maintain social distancing, who live outside the Omaha metro area or others who cannot physically attend shows at the theater.

As a digital-only ticketholder, within two weeks of a show’s opening, you will receive a link to view the following shows:

  • Penguin Problems
  • It’s a Wonderful Life
  • How to Build an Ark
  • Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus: The Musical

While the world around us changes, you can be assured that The Rose remains committed to you and your family, and that we continue to be a place where you and your children can experience the joy and spectacle of the performing arts together.
