What We Do

The Rose Theater is committed to enriching the lives of children and families through live theater and arts education. We are proud to be the place where a love of the arts begins. From the young preschooler seeing her favorite storybook burst to life to the shy student taking his first timid steps on stage, a lifelong love of theater starts right here, under the copper domes of The Rose.

Interesting Info

The Rose Theater is one of the largest and most accomplished children’s theaters in the nation.
In 2016, American Theatre magazine named The Rose one of the top 20 children’s theaters in the United States.
Over the course of a year, approximately 70,000 people attend public performances held at the theater and nearly 30,000 students attend field trips.
