- Amoris Projects
This entirely reimagined production expands the original story of Boy Trouble across multiple characters and multiple years, debuting the two-actor version of the Fringe hit.
Kay and Anthony have a lot in common. As two of the only gay kids in their town, their paths cross over years of casual encounters and missed connections - but some things only stay on the DL for so long. Boy Trouble is a cutting, playful, and surprising interrogation of toxic masculinity and casual sex in the Grindr age.

The Sound of Music
Maria is causing the Abbey far too much trouble. She just doesn't belong. So she escapes to a mountain meadow where the song she sings comes back in echoes from the surrounding hills. And as if in answer to her longing for something vital and new, she is sent off to be governess to Captain von Trapp's seven mischievous children. With youthful vitality and purity of heart, she teaches the children to sing bringing a fleeting moment of happiness in the shadow of the rise of the Third Reich. A summer musical for the whole family!
The Sound of Music runs June 2 to September 2, on Wednesdays - Saturdays!

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat is the musical that launched the Rice-Lloyd Webber collaboration, becoming a multi-award-winning show performed in over 80 countries and recognized as one of the world’s most beloved family musicals. It features many songs that have gone on to become pop and musical theatre classics, including Any Dream Will Do, Close Every Door To Me, There’s One More Angel In Heaven and Go, Go, Go Joseph.
The story of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is a tale that follows the journey of a dreamer. Joseph is the son of Jacob and one of twelve brothers. He is given a coat of many colors by his father, which is symbolic of his favor and an object of his brothers’ jealousy. The brothers decide to sell Joseph into slavery after initially plotting to have him killed. Convincing their father that his favorite son has died, they reveal his tattered coat and believe that they are rid of him once and for all.

The Syringa Tree
A middle-aged woman longs to rest her back against the syringa tree in her childhood home. She recollects an exhilarating story of the abiding love between two families – one black, one white – and the two children that were born into their shared household in early 1960's South Africa. With humour and heart, the story follows their destines through four generations from early apartheid to the present-day free South Africa. An inspiring story of two families separated by racism but connected by love.
The Syringa Tree plays on Rosebud’s intimate blackbox Studio Stage located north of Rosebud Church. Check-in for all Studio Stage performances at the West-side of town behind the Church. Doors open 30 minutes prior to show-time and no admission will be allowed once the performance starts.
The Syringa Tree runs from July 7 to September 2, 2023 on Wednesdays - Saturdays @ 4:30pm!
A buffet option is available on Fridays & Saturdays.
