Rosebud Children’s Theatre Conservatory wraps up 10th season with ‘Little Women’

The Broadway musical, which runs Aug. 2-4 and 9-11, is based on the classic Americana story written by Louisa May Alcott.

“It’s a mean and stormy night. The moors are bleak and bloody. Thunder claps! Lightning strikes!” Jo March reads her story to Professor Bhaer looking for his approval. Will she succeed? Will she be published?

You can find out the answers to these questions and more when you attend Rosebud Children’s Theatre Conservatory’s production of “Little Women: The Broadway Musical” on August 2-4 and 9-11.

Rosebud Children’s Theater Conservatory is wrapping up their 10th season of their Summer Youth Musical Theatre Festival with a production “Little Women: The Broadway Musical,” which is based on the classic Americana story written by Louisa May Alcott. Tickets for the show start at $10 online ($15 for VIP) at or at the door for $13.

Performances will be Aug. 2-4, and 9-11; Fridays and Saturdays at 7 p.m. and Sundays at 1:30 p.m., at Federal Way United Methodist Church (29645 51st Ave. S.) in Auburn. On Aug. 10 Rosebud invites alumni and the public to join them for a special celebration of their 10th season.

Rosebud has a wide range of options for local actors, including summer theater camp opportunities for ages 4-7, 8-12, 13-20, a winter community production for adult actors, and classes in the theatre arts throughout the year. The summer program provides youth with a full theatrical experience working with professionals in the industry. The benefits of theater include increased self-confidence, public speaking skills, social awareness, physical coordination, memory, listening skills, vocabulary, reading skills, ability to read emotions, sense of belonging, and so much more.
