It’s A Wonderful Life

Based On The Lux Radio Theater Script.
Adapted by Sarah Lynn Brown.

Witness this beautiful homage to a cinematic classic, made specifically for our time. Meet George Bailey, whose teenage guardian angel has to descend on Christmas Eve to save him from despair. Sometimes it takes seeing things from the perspective of a young person to realize that it is a wonderful life. Featuring live music from the era and a virtuosic cast playing multiple roles, this production is the perfect homage to the power of community.

Social Stories

A social story is a tool that helps individuals better understand the world around them so they can plan for a positive experience, even if they are going into an place that is unknown to them. Social stories help individuals know what to expect and what to do in unfamiliar situations by walking them through the experience. They are often used by individuals on the autism spectrum, children with sensory needs or those with other special needs. They can be very helpful for very young children anticipating their first theatrical experience. The Rose’s social stories feature photos of all areas of the theater to help children of all abilities with a step-by-step explanation of what it is like to visit The Rose, as well as answering questions they may have. Click here to access The Rose’s show-specific social stories.
