The Rose Theater Season Kick Off
Books come alive at the Rose!!
Growing up everyone had at least one favorite book or collection of books that were called their own. Many times one book would be read so much that the binding wore down and the book was hardly readable. That’s what childhood is all about and we would bet that many of you would still be able to remember that story pretty clearly. Now that we have grown we enjoy reading those same timeless books to our children as well. Showing the child events in the book in real life will help that book even become a stronger part of their life.
The Rose Theater has been known for bringing children’s books to life on stage. This season is no different, bringing in favorites like “James and the Giant Peach” and “Seussical The Musical.” Be sure to check out all of the plays coming to the Rose over the next several months and be sure to get your membership NOW before they are sold out.
