Spring is here, and even though we’re unable to open Rosebud Theatre for the public, we're still in the business of play-making. Rosebud School of the Arts has been blessed to be able to hold in-person classes as an AHS sanctioned performing arts cohort, and we’re eager to share the student’s work with you. So while we plan Rosebud Theatre’s reopening steps, we invite you to take part in online streaming of the following student events.
On April 30th, we open a student production of Leanna Brodie’s play, For Home and Country. Rosebud Theatre actors Norma Roth, Mike Thiessen and Sarah Robertson join forces with our Mentorship students on the Opera House stage in a production filled with music and the story of an unlikely friendship between two women of different generations. It’s a hopeful play, and a tonic for our times. “Let’s find a way to understand each other.” Your presence as part of our virtual audience is an important connection. The theatre is not theatre without an audience. So, join us live on screen! We’ll meet you in heart and soul through the magic of the internet!
Rosebud Alive! – our spring fundraiser is being kicked off with a live streamed event on April 14th featuring our student choir and other student work from a very busy and productive term.
Another presentation from this term is Sticks & Stones – The Stories We Carry Beneath Our Skin. This devised movement show with live music begins online on April 22nd @ 7:30pm live from the Rosebud Studio Stage.
Do stay tuned. We’re making plans for exciting and engaging COVID-safe events this summer. We just can’t say what they are quite yet. Join us in what we hope will be the waning days of uncertainty in this persistent pandemic. We’re hopeful for good things to come!
