Once upon a time…

Those four magic words launch a true journey of imagination. This season at The Rose, we invite you to visit fairy tale lands and the ocean world of Bikini Bottom. We dare you to face down Greek gods and to explore the rich heritage of friends from countries around the globe. Remember the magic that happens as the curtain rises, the lights begin to twinkle, and the story begins. Remember the magic of “once upon a time.”

It all begins this season at The Rose! Be a part of the magic!

Parents and teachers always say “popularity doesn’t matter,” but for grade schoolers Cooper and Mia, it sure seems to be important. Cooper is just not like the sports-playing, superhero-loving boys in his class. Mia also finds it challenging to be friends with her female classmates. When a popular 7th grader named Blake offers to be their Popularity Coach (for a low, low price) Cooper and Mia sign up, hoping maybe they’ll finally figure out how to win friends. But will Blake’s slick lessons on “How To Be Popular” make matters
better…or worse?

Young Yeila dreams of being a superstar but her lack of confidence gives her awful stage fright. With advice from her mother and mentors, Yeila begins her journey to find her roots, get confidence and be amazing! Travel with Yeila as she visits her grandmother in Cuba to add a salsa flavor to her own hip-hop style! The audience gets to dance along in this dynamic participation play where one actress creates three generations of lively women, written and performed by Paige Hernandez with music by Nick the 1da.

Curious, energetic and talkative CJ spends his Sundays with his Nana, who moves through the busy bustle of the big city at a decidedly different drumbeat. After the Reverend at Nana’s church challenges CJ to “see with more than eyes,” he starts to discover that there’s more to witness on their weekly bus trip down the city’s main thoroughfare than he ever realized before. With colorful characters and big-city beats, CJ gains new perspective on his neighbors as they travel to the “Last Stop on Market Street.” And your young theatergoers will, too.

PREMIUM EVENT SHOW! Rose members receive discounted tickets.

Celebrate the season with The Rose Theater’s fantastically frosty take on Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella. This new holiday production of the beloved Broadway musical will whisk you away to a wintery wonderland, where your family will find the familiar fable of Cinderella; a young woman who overcomes the frozen hearts of her family with the warmth of her hope and determination – and of course, a little help from her Fairy Godmother! With sparkling sets, cozy costumes, and snowy special effects, this princess tale will prove to be the perfect present for everyone on your nice list this holiday season.

FIRST STAGE PRE-K SHOW! Rose members receive discounted tickets.

What happens when a new toy joins the toy box? Bella the Ballerina and Teddy the Teddy Bear welcome Milo, a new Wooden Duck. They teach Milo classic games like Jacks, Hide and Seek, and many more. These three heroes move very differently from one another and must find creative ways to play together as they forge a friendship. In this interactive show for very young children, Milo and the audience learn that play is more fun when everyone is included.

The Rose is ready to present a season full of magic and memories!

As we raise the curtain on another season, we want to welcome you back
to everything you have come to expect from The Rose. JOIN TODAY!
