Rosebud Theatre has a special deal for patrons wishing to see the first two "Rosebud Presents" offerings of 2016. Book both Wildwood Fire and Wingfield Unbound early and reward yourself with over 16% savings.


Rosebud Presents, an eclectic and entertaining series of live theatre performances, forums and concerts, was introduced in 2012 to give Rosebud patrons "something more" than the annual season of Opera House productions.

Artistic Director, Morris Ertman, calls Wildwood Fire and Wingfield Unbound "a wildly popular, wonderful winter warm-up to our exciting 2016 house line-up."

Box Office Manager, Melanie Winters, explains the special, "For one week only, between January 15 to January 22, tickets to both Wildwood Fire and Wingfield Unbound are packaged together for only $91.35 per person. Or for an even greater discount on all the shows in the 2016 season, season tickets provide the best value."

"In 2015, Wildwood Fire played at the BMO Studio Stage and sold out so quickly we could barely keep up adding performances. This story will surprise you!  So, we've brought it back for one night only at the Opera House and added a sing-a-long of beloved Carter-Cash songs," Artistic Director, Morris Ertman states. "And we always love welcoming Rod Beattie as Walt Wingfield and his many other Wingfield Farm characters. If you've never seen one of his shows, don't miss Wingfield Unbound. Beattie is an amazing actor and storyteller."

Wildwood Fire plays for one night only on February 13. June Carter Cash and her mother Maybelle Carter are set to play a concert in Rosebud, but Johnny has landed himself in the hospital. What's a Carter girl to do when the show must go on? Come and hear June Carter Cash and her mother Maybelle Carter sing their way through the joys and the tears that come with loving the Man in Black. Prior to the performance, there will be a warm-up sing-a-long with The Dearhearts.

The four performances of Wingfield Unbound are set for March 17-19 and include a delicious buffet meal before the show. On his fourth season on the farm (and his first as a married man) Walt Wingfield tries to preserve the memory of the old rural community of Persephone Township by promoting the crumbling Hollyhock Mill as a museum site. But the locals say the mill is haunted. Undaunted by such superstitious fears, Walt sets out to prove to the neighbours that there's nothing to this curse business - with near disastrous results. If you have yet to experience the Wingfield phenomenon, there is no better place than Rosebud to start. For more details on the entire Wingfield Farm saga, visit wingfieldfarm.ca.

To book this early-bird special, call the Box Office at 1-800-267-7553 between January 15 to 22. Don't miss your chance to see two great shows at one fantastic price!
