The Scottish Rite Theatre is proud to present a unique production of Maurice Sendak's classic family musical. Rosie dreams of being a star and through force of personality makes everyone around her a part of her big break! Directed by Jenny Larson, with musical direction by SRT Artistic Director Emily Marks and starring a cast of young Austin rock musicians, including Lex Land as "Rosie", James Robinson, Matt Puckett and Claire Puckett of Mother Falcon, Hannah Hagar and Cole Wilson.

Staged as a rock show more than musical theater, this production features all new arrangements by the ensemble. Emily Marks created a band from scratch with the cast and they spent a month working up the tunes as though they were their own new material. The result is a fresh take on a 70s era milestone in children's theater.
