Rosebud Theatre celebrates 2011 season with opening of Rosebud Mercantile

Rosebud (March 10, 2011) – “The Rosebud Mercantile, our new 10,000 square foot dining, shopping and meeting/convention space expansion has been 10 years in the making,” says Rosebud Theatre’s Executive Director Bob Davis. “Everything will be ready in time for opening night of A Bright Particular Star, our first Rosebud Opera House performance of the 2011 season.”

Davis adds, “The architectural design of the Rosebud Mercantile in an old-time bank and livery stable theme is in keeping with the unique heritage values of the hamlet of Rosebud. The facility will be an integral part of Rosebud’s renowned dining and theatre experience, the revenues of which help support the education and training of theatre artists from across Canada.”

One of the most notable changes will be the spacious Rosebud Gifts and Crafts retail shop now located on the main floor. As well, patrons now have the option of choosing from the buffet or a plate meal (extra charge for non- season ticket holders) in the new Harvest Room dining space. Visitors to Rosebud can also experience Wild Horse Jack’s Bistro & Grill which will be open to the public from Wednesday to Saturday for lunch and dinner. On the second floor is the Encana Conference Centre with catered meeting space for up to 250 people. Several weddings and meetings have already been booked for 2011.

This year promises to fulfill our 2011 theme and be full of stories that end “Beyond Your Wildest Expectations”. There are plays with Canadian connections and plays with connections to stories that have been told in the past at Rosebud Theatre.
