A Christmas Story at Rosebud Theatre

Based on the beloved classic film, A Christmas Story is a hilarious tale set in the golden days of old-fashioned family Christmases. BB guns, tacky leg lamps, exploding furnaces, a pack of 785 smelly hound dogs - you know this story, but just in case, here’s a sneak peek:

As always, your ticket to A Christmas Story includes a buffet meal before show. Running until December 22 with both matinee and evening performances - we warmly welcome you to get into the spirit of the season at Rosebud Theatre this November and December. Get tickets >

The Rosebud Experience

The Rosebud Experience goes beyond the simple joy of watching a performance at the theatre. It transcends doing into feeling, experiencing and memory-making. From your drive into our quaint, artsy town, to the activities pre and post theatre-going, to the delicious buffet meal that’s included with your ticket, to bumping into actors and performers around town - that’s the Rosebud Experience.

Use a theatre performance as a chance to get away for a couple days, escape the city and relax at one of Rosebud’s lovely Bed and Breakfasts, or Inn.

Charming Stays at the Rosebud Country Inn

This beautiful inn features 10 rooms, each equipped with their own ensuite bathroom and in-room heat controls. A hot breakfast is served daily beginning between 7:30am-9am. Visit their TripAdvisor page and you’ll find so many positive reviews with feedback like: “Rosebud is a lovely community and staying at the Inn just made it all that more special” and “We came for the theatre, and ended up staying for 3 nights”.

It’s the perfect place to plan a relaxing autumn stay exploring the area. From the many unique Rosebud gift shops, dining spots, and artist galleries minutes from Rosebud Country Inn’s door, to the convenience of staying so close to the theatre - you could plan a whole Rosebud getaway with Rosebud Country Inn as your resting point.

If you’re looking to get out and see the surrounding area while in Rosebud, Rosebud Country Inn owner and hostess BJ is a great resource of local knowledge. She is a member of the Belles of the Badlands, a local group dedicated to promoting the Canadian Badlands and everything they have to offer. She says autumn is an excellent time for hiking around the Badlands. The Hoodoos and Horseshoe Canyon are two particular spots that come to mind. She can also help you plan a shopping trip or recommend nearby attractions.

On top of being an amazing place to stay year-round, Rosebud Country Inn collaborates with other local businesses to provide unique special events and packages throughout the year. One example of this is their regular collaboration with Nature’s Essential Garden to provide presentations on how to use ingredients from the local area to make bath and other personal products.
