Well, that’s it for the 2014-15 academic year. Report cards will be mailed on Friday, 26th June. Good luck to all of our graduates, and we’ll see the rest of you in September!
Rosedale’s Fringe Festival is an annual four-day theatre festival from Tuesday 5th June to Friday 8th June, from 4-8pm. It features original drama, dance, comedy, poetry, and art. In this year’s Fringe Festival old meets new. Students will be staging new and original plays as well as replaying past Fringe favourites. This will be Rosedale’s biggest Fringe Festival yet, with a poetry slam, site-specific plays, collective drama pieces, dance, and a performance from the Young Company. Come to the Fringe Festival 2015 and re-imagine theatre!
This year, on May 27th, 28th, and 29th, we are celebrating 20 years of dance at Rosedale!
Tickets can be purchased at the box office during lunch hours, the main office and at the door each evening. All tickets are non-refundable. We do not reserve tickets, so please try to get your tickets ahead of time, especially as the Friday evening show has sold out in the past. All tickets are $15 on Friday evenings. At the Wednesday and Thursday evening performances students and seniors pay only $10 and Adult tickets are $15. It’s a very affordable evening out, and the students are very excited to share their work with their friends and families.
Just a reminder that no photos or filming are allowed during the Dance Night performances. It is distracting and dangerous for the dancers on stage. A professional DVD will be available for purchase in June for only $20. We supply the DVD at a minimal cost to encourage our audiences to watch the live performance as it was meant to be. You don’t want to miss the magic!
Art is a construct. It consists of limitations. As Garry Winogrand once stated, “Photography is about finding out what can happen in the frame.” Senior art students of Rosedale Heights School of the Arts investigate this idea, interpreting the concept of “framed” in this exhibition at the culmination of their school year.
On April 15th, 16th, and 17th, The Rosedale Heights School of the Arts Musical Theatre Department is proud to present How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, written by Abe Burrows, Jack Weinstock and Willie Gilbert, with music by Frank Loesser. You’ll love this entertaining romantic comedy full of big production numbers!
How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying is a musical satire that follows a young man named J. Pierpont Finch, who, with nothing more than his own ambition, charm, and a trusty guidebook, is able to climb the corporate ladder from an entry-level job as a window washer to company chairman. While working for the World Wide Wicket Company – which is “so big that nobody knows exactly what anybody else is doing” – Finch meets Rosemary Pilkington, a secretary with matrimonial ambitions that are all her own . . .

Laura Wade’s Alice is a fresh and contemporary re-visioning of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland. In it, fourteen-year-old Alice Little is grieving the death of her beloved brother Joe, an event that throws her life into turmoil, strains her relationships with her parents, and makes her a virtual recluse in her own home. To cope, Alice retreats into the psychological ‘rabbit hole’ of her own mind, encountering disorder and confusion, mirrored images of real life, and a surreal cast of wonderfully bizarre characters familiar to all those who love Carroll’s classic tale.
