The tiny Michigan town of Radio Falls has been trapped in perpetual winter for a generation. Snow and ice coat every tree branch and telephone wire, and the unceasing 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 -- and it's up to her to save Radio Falls from the vicious curse of the Rime Witch. An optimistic and imaginative tale, Rose and the Rime returns to the stage this season with an enhanced production that features aerial spectacle and magic. Learn More

The show is low budget, and yet the acting and singing makes up for anything that is missing prop-wise. There are some one liners that will make you laugh out loud too. I'm sure you'll enjoy it. The circular stage and position for the audience, gives it a different feel, and since you are so close to the action, it feels like you are part it, and sometimes you actually are.

The House’s newly imagined version of The Nutcracker first premiered at the Steppenwolf Theatre in 2007 under the Visiting Company Initiative, and enjoyed a highly acclaimed second run at The House last year.
