Rockin’ Rosie is the Rose Guild’s annual fundraising event. Each year “Rosie” rocks a different theme and attendees let out their inner performer by dressing up and cutting loose. The event offers dinner, dancing, silent and live auctions, fun and fabulous fundraising. The event is known for its light-hearted spirit and is a fun way to get out and have a good time in support of family-oriented performing arts in Omaha.

The Rose Theater Guild presents a merchandise boutique at each main stage show, with proceeds benefiting The Rose. Volunteers are needed to help staff the boutique. For more information or to volunteer, email the Guild with “Boutique Volunteer” as your subject line.
Rosebud membership is a unique opportunity for children to help support the fun and fundraising efforts of The Rose Guild. Rosebud members are recognized in The Rose’s main stage show programs, receive a pre-selected gift from the Guild Boutique at each show, and are invited to two exclusive events each season where they can tour the sets and meet the actors.
