PERFORMING AMAZING FEATS OF STORYTELLING SINCE 2001
 
 

Rose and The Rime

%none

Radio Falls, Michigan, has been trapped in perpetual winter for a generation, and the constant blizzard surrounding the town means there’s no way in or out. The last moment of heated passion brought the town its only remaining youth: a young girl named Rose. It is up to her to save Radio Falls from the vicious curse of the Rime Witch. But when she succeeds, Radio Falls discovers the witch’s magic coin has two sides. The creators of The Sparrow bring you this modern version of The House’s favorite myth -- a reminder that anything powerful enough to fulfill your dreams is powerful enough to destroy them.

 

“…This whole intensely creative show—which deals with a plucky young girl who stares down an evil witch, only to confront the ambivalence of power— is relentlessly optimistic. That’s one of the great pleasures of The House.”
– Chicago Tribune

 

“Wonderfully imaginative stagecraft and a unique approach to movement."
– Chicago Sun-Times
