Parent's Guide to Rose and the Rime

Hello grown ups!

Before bringing young kids to see our show Rose and the Rime, it’s great to know a bit about what the show will entail. We love this show and want you and your family to come see it, but we also understand the importance of knowing what exactly you’re bringing your child to. Is it scary? (Possibly!) Is the content appropriate for my child? (Most likely!) Is there stuff they’ll like? (Definitely.) 

Overall, we’d say kids 6 and up will feel good seeing this show. If you brought your 5 year old to see The Nutcracker and they loved it, we think they’ll be good here too.  Though please note the next item about the show's length.

The first thing to consider is that this show runs about 85 minutes WITHOUT an intermission and without late seating.  If your little one can go see a movie and sit through the whole thing, they’ll be fine at this show. But if you have to leave the movie theater a couple of times during the movie due to wiggleyness/bladders/a great need for popcorn/etc. you might be cautious taking your little one to see this show. Due to the layout of the set, if you do leave the theater we cannot guarantee that you will be re-sat in your original seats. 

Warning: SPOILERS AHEAD!  Here’s a quick guide to some content in the play.

Things they’re gonna love:

 * The overall story! In this original fairytale, our heroine Rose goes on a big adventure to save her town by stealing back the town’s Magic Coin from the wicked Rime Witch.

 * Rose is a feast for your senses! Not only is it a beautiful play that you’re watching up close (the farthest away you’ll be is 5 rows up!), but we rely on movement, music and visual elements to tell the story. The emphasis on action, rather than speech, makes Rose more enjoyable and easier to follow for your little one.

 * Bunny puppets.

 * Lots of confetti snow.

 * 2 of the actors will be flying above your heads. What? Yeah.

 * There’s a magic coin in the play and a chocolate coin in the program.

 * There’s a huge BBQ party with bubbles and hot dogs and general hilarity

  * A few songs with live instruments played by the actors

 * Actors will come and say hello before and after the show.

 * Grown ups who have brought young and teen girls to this show have told us afterwards that Rose inspired some healthy conversation about self image and romantic relationships. Those can be tricky issues to bring up and we’re glad Rose helped facilitate those discussions!

Possible Scary Moments: (HERE COME THE SPOILERS!)

 * During Rose’s adventure she gets lost in the woods and chased by wolves (but she escapes!)

 * The Rime Witch is our “villain.” We meet the Witch smack dab in the middle of the show. She tries to (and temporarily succeeds) to eat Rose.  But Rose escapes from the Witch’s belly, killing the Rime Witch in the process.  

 * One of the main characters is killed towards the end of the play.

Moments they might have questions about:

 * Rose gives birth offstage to a stillborn child. There is nothing graphic about this scene and nothing said aloud about the baby being stillborn, it’s all implied. Immediately following that scene the baby is brought back to life with Rose’s Magic Coin.

  * (SPOILER ALERT) At the end of the play, Rose becomes the next Rime Witch and throws the town back into a perpetual winter. This might be the first time your child has experienced a story without the typical “happy ending,” which might lead them to voice questions or concerns about the way our show ends. One of the greatest benefits of seeing theater is the conversation that follows! It’s a perfect opportunity to engage with your little one, asking questions like: “Why do you think the writers chose to end it that way?” or “What would need to happen in the story for it to end ‘happily’?” 

Rose is one of our most beloved plays; it tackles big themes considered central to many of the stories told at The House while showcasing the magnificent stagecraft that we are capable of. Those elements aren’t lost on children. In fact more often than not your little one will pick up on a detail or moment that your adult eyes missed. I truly hope you feel that Rose is a good choice for your family. The joy of seeing this show and the teachable moments that follow are priceless.

If you have any other questions about content, seating layout or anything else please do not hesitate to contact me directly at alysia@thehousetheatre.com or give us a call at 773.769.3832.

If you take a child to the theater, not only will they practice empathy, they might also laugh uproariously, or come home singing about science, or want to know more about history, or tell you what happened at school today, or spend all dinner discussing music, or learn how to handle conflict, or start becoming future patrons of the arts.” –Lauren Gunderso

CARNIVAL STUDIO THEATER

Written by Chris Mathews, Jake Minton and Nathan Allen. 
Directed by Nathan Allen.
Presented in partnership with The House Theatre of Chicago. 

"Wonderfully imaginative stagecraft and a unique approach to movement!" Chicago Sun-Times

Radio Falls, Mich., 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 sold-out hit, Death and Harry Houdini, and last season’s holiday favorite, The Nutcracker, A Magical New Play, 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.
