Join Park Ranger Glow on an adventure in the woods! Audiences will hear crickets, sit on moss, smell the pines and be immersed in gentle darkness so the fireflies can finally come out and play. Featuring shadow puppetry and sensory-filled moments of audience interaction, "Firefly" transports children to a place of wonder and beauty.

FIRST STAGE provides a way to nurture creative thinking and imagination
while inspiring both children and their parents.

Introduce your child to the magic of theater through FIRST STAGE!

First Stage: A small stage for big imaginations

The Rose is proud to offer young theater-goers a unique opportunity to experience the theater arts. Our FIRST STAGE productions are perfect for preschoolers, children with special needs or sensory needs or others who desire a gentler, more interactive and personal performance.

Our FIRST STAGE productions feature:

  • Interactions with performers
  • A smaller theater space where kids are part of the action
  • Flexible seating in chairs, on the floor, on benches, etc.
  • A “shush-free” environment
  • Minimal periods of darkness or loud sounds
  • A whole lot of imagination and fun!

The Rose’s Hitchcock Stage (a smaller theater space located on our 4th floor), allows children to become completely absorbed in the theatrical experience. We encourage their interaction with the performers and invite your family to tear down the fourth wall and become a part of the performance.

First Stage Productions are ideal for:

Ages 1+

First-time theatergoers

Families wanting to try a performance experience

Children with sensory or other special needs
