As part of Rosebud’s centenary in 1983, the School’s drama department launched the Rosebud Historical Music Theatre. Staff and students wrote the play, rehearsed it, and performed it on an outdoor stage, drawing hundreds of interested theatre goers. Thus began the widely-acclaimed Rosebud Theatre which now attracts thousands annually to its productions. The old community hall, originally a grain storage facility, was renovated into a 220-seat Opera House that includes indoor washrooms. Veteran theatre-goers may remember having to use the outhouses.
Rosebud Theatre stages seven plays a year – five at the Opera House and two at the BMO Studio Stage, offering matinee and evening shows up to seven times a week. In addition, other performers and their acts are brought in Rosebud Centre School Retreat 1982 250through the year to put on plays, concerts, and presentations as part of its Rosebud Presents series. Some of the shows from 2015 included, The Miracle Worker, Last Train to Nibroc, and A Wind in the Willows Christmas in Rosebud. Before each Opera House performance, guests dine at the historic Haskayne-Kenney Mercantile where they enjoy a full buffet and live dinner music in the quaintly-decorated dining rooms. Patrons of the theatre come from all over Alberta, and during the summer many tourists from across Canada and around the world will find themselves in Rosebud.
Rosebud, however, offers more than theatre. It is an experience. The scenic nine-hole Akokiniskway Golf Course offers a challenging game. The Centennial Museum, once the local Chinese laundry, displays artifacts and photographs of pioneer life. The historic United Church now houses an art gallery and recording studio. Rosebud Gifts & Crafts and other shops display and sell local and regional items from jewelry and clothing to pillows and books. During the warmer months, you can discover Rosebud’s pioneer history through a self-guided walking tour around the hamlet. Charming accommodation awaits at the Stage Door Bed & Breakfast, the Rose Cottage Bed & Breakfast and the Rosebud Country Inn, overlooking the river valley and golf course. And tasty treats tempt at Thorny Rose Cafe, Sarah’s Ice Cream, and Wild Horse Jack’s Grill.
Rosebud School of the Arts is an expanding operation with specific plans for growth and development, but is keeping in mind at the same time that one of its major assets is its small community and rural setting.www.rosebudtheatre.com
