Welcome to yet another season with Roseneath Theatre! Roseneath will be directing its focus this season on engaging audiences with the notion of Self-Discovery. Young people are shaped by a variety of influences—good and bad—which they encounter on a regular basis. Whether they realize it consciously or not, the words and actions of the people around them have a large impact on the way in which they see the world. The productions in Roseneath’s 29th season of curriculum-connected, engaging theatre for Grades JK-12 address the influence that individuals have on one another. We take a close look at the way youth react with their peers, family, friends and siblings; as well as the way our choices, beliefs and history shape our path.

Self-Discovery plays a sizeable role in their lives of young people as they experience more of the world and start to decide how to mould their own future. Youth struggle to both discover and express their identity to their peers and family. Through the content of the productions this season, as well as theatre as a form of expression, we hope to teach audiences about discovering themselves.
