The Rose Theater presents
Stellaluna and Other Tales
Join Jannell Cannon’s adorable animal creations as they bring their simple “Hello, World!” wisdom to this charming musical adaptation of three of her beloved books. You’ll meet the very vivacious Verdi, an energetic young snake who doesn’t want to turn green and grow up. And the proud and clever Pinduli who turns a bad bullying situation around to teach her harassers a lesson. And of course Stellaluna, who makes the most of getting lost until she can discover who she really is. With magical music and delightful dancing, you’ll have a wonderful time at the watering hole with Stellaluna and her friends!

In this hilarious comedy by the author of Lend Me A Tenor and Moon Over Buffalo, two English Shakespearean actors, Jack and Leo, find themselves so down on their luck that they are performing “Scenes from Shakespeare” on the Moose Lodge circuit in the Amish country of Pennsylvania. When they hear that an old lady in York, PA is about to die and leave her fortune to her two long-lost English nephews, they resolve to pass themselves off as her beloved relatives and get the cash. The trouble is, when they get to York, they find out that the relatives aren’t nephews, but nieces! Romantic entanglements ensue, especially when Leo falls madly in love with the old lady’s vivacious niece, Meg, who’s engaged to the local minister.

Written by Robert Harling, Steel Magnolias is a play based on his experience with his sister’s death. It is a comedy-drama about the bond among a group of southern women. As the title suggests, the female characters are as delicate as magnolias and tough as steel. The play, which takes place in a hair salon, is alternately hilarious and touching and in the end deeply revealing of the strength which underlies the antic banter.

Teens ‘N’ Theater will present their production of
Young, Gifted & Black
Devised Theater Takes Center Stage at The Rose Theater
(Omaha, NE) The Rose Teens ‘N’ Theater program will present Young, Gifted & Black on Thursday, April 27 at 7 pm, Saturday, April 29 at 7 pm and Sunday, April 30 at 4:30 pm on The Rose Theater’s Hitchcock Stage.
This is the second year that Young, Gifted & Black will be a completely devised show where each participant has a say in the topics. The actors hope that they will be able to convey their thoughts and emotions on real world subjects that are currently taking place not only in Omaha, but in the entire world.
This year the Young, Gifted & Black actors have picked various people from the Black experience in America and are presenting them to the audience. The young actors will become the person they have picked and then share what it meant to learn, research and delve into the struggle and reality for these Americans. They have selected people who have and are still inspiring. It is called “We Are The Dreamers.” “We gave them the concept of researching a person from Black America that resonates with them and then present them to the audience as if they are that person,” said director Tyrone Beasley.
Beasley, along with Camille Metoyer Moten and Lanette Moore, lead the production. Their goal was to give the actors as much freedom in expressing themselves as they could. “Our main focus is to get them to step outside of themselves and their world and step into another. Whether it is someone from the distant past or someone current, we thought it important for the teens to feel a new experience,” said Moten, who is directing her second year of Young, Gifted & Black as a devised piece.
The cast of Young, Gifted & Black includes Rachel Deroma, Diondra Butler, Aimee Correa, Isiaah Clark, Taurus Dismuke, Micah Moten, Kya Phillips, Taijah Carlisle, Elisha Moore, Imani Lamar and Somer Young. Schools represented include: Omaha Central High School, Papillion Lavista South High School, Creighton Prep High School, Burke High School, Bennington High School and Omaha North High School.
Young, Gifted & Black will be presented in The Rose Theater’s Hitchcock Theater on Thursday, April 27 at 7 pm, Saturday, April 29 at 7 pm and Sunday, April 30 at 4:30 pm. Teens will be admitted for free at the Thursday night performance. Tickets are $6 each and available at The Rose Box Office, (402) 345-4849, or at the door the day of the show.
Young, Gifted & Black is sponsored by The Mukti Fund, Mammel Family Foundation, the Nebraska Arts Council Nebraska Arts Council and the Nebraska Cultural Endowment.
Teens ‘N’ Theater is open to middle/high school students who have not yet graduated. There is no cost to participate and the program is open to all interested students. For more information about Teens ‘N’ Theater, visit www.rosetheater.org/education/
This program provides teens, ages 13 to 18, opportunities to roll up their sleeves and get active in world of theater. The Rose produces six teens-only shows each season, where teen participants are given opportunities to act, direct, write, design and stage manage. Students perform fresh, thought-provoking work at The Rose’s Hitchcock Theater.

Susan made a deal with her adoring husband: Once her first book is done, they’ll start a family. As the ink dries on the final page, the couple heads to Red Cloud, NE, hoping to begin a simpler life, but a slew of mysterious guests prove that there’s nothing simple about small town living. Dreams shatter, plans change, and the trajectory of Susan’s future takes new shape in the looming shadow of American novelist, Willa Cather. “There are some things you learn best in calm, and some in storm.” Susan just hopes to make it out alive.
