About CommUNITY Connections

CommUNITY Connections, The Rose Theater’s outreach program, makes theater activities available to Omaha-area children and families who have not traditionally had access to the theater arts. We believe that theater can be a critical component of the healing process for under-resourced, traumatized or system-involved young people. Thanks to our generous supporters, CommUNITY Connections programming is offered free or at reduced rates to organizational and individual participants.

Teens 'N' Theater

Teens ‘N’ Theater provides teens opportunities to roll up their sleeves and get active in the world of theater. The Rose produces several teens-only shows each season, where teen participants are given opportunities to act, direct, write, design and stage manage.

Teens ‘N’ Theater also helps instill strong, positive self-esteem, commitment and responsibility in young people through role modeling, all while helping them develop skills in performance, playwriting, directing and technical support.

Students perform fresh, thought-provoking work at The Rose’s Hitchcock Theater, including productions by the Young, Gifted, & Black troupe (focusing on issues of racial equality) and The Pride Players (LGBTQ issues).

There is no cost to participate in Teens ‘N’ Theater, and the program is open to all interested students ages 13-18.
