The mission of The Rose is inspiring young people and their families to discover the magic of theater, to find their voices and enrich their communities.
The Rose Theater is home to the Omaha Theater Company – the only resident, touring, professional theater company in Omaha and one of the largest in the country!
The Rose is accessible to all children. No child is ever turned away for economic reasons. “Pay-what-you-can” evenings are offered for most productions. Thousands of tickets are given to area youth-serving charities year after year.
Live performances are shared from two stages at The Rose Theater: the main stage and the intimate Hitchcock Theater.
Professional actor/educators offer classes in theater, directing, musical theater, singing, dancing, and more. Children ages 4 to 18 are welcome.
The Rose has produced a number of world-premiere shows including Return to Niobrara, The Doll Maker’s Gift, Pete The Cat: The Musical, Sherlock Holmes & The First Baker Street Irregular, Leo Lionni’s Frederick, Zen Ties, Mufaro’s Beautiful Daughters, The Wolf and Its Shadows, Where the Red Fern Grows, and The Little Engine That Could and has worked with renowned playwrights including James Still, Mark Medoff, Y York, Joe Sutton, and Robert Bly.
