Planning Your Broadway Rose Experience
With easy access to shopping, restaurants, entertainment, and outdoor spaces, Tigard offers many amenities for our patrons. Whether you want to plan a full day of pampering, or simply want to grab a quick bite before the show, here are some of our suggestions.
Make it a Date
Take your paramour out for the evening and enjoy a delicious dinner of Italian cuisine at Café Allegro before your evening performance at Broadway Rose. Save room for wine and one (or two, we won’t tell) of our truffles from concessions before heading into the auditorium at the Broadway Rose New Stage.
Seeing one of our summer productions at Deb Fennell Auditorium? Consider instead dinner at Pastini Pasteria and post-show drink at Twigs Bistro—both of which are at nearby Bridgeport Village.
Tip: See a production around Valentine’s Day for an extra bit of romance!
New in Town
Discover the city of Tigard with this full day of leisurely exploration. Start your morning at Symposium Coffee House before strolling through downtown and exploring its shops. Enjoy a picnic lunch at Fanno Creek Park.
For your dinner fare, try some unique flavors at the Koi Fusion food truck outside Tigard Taphouse, where you can also grab a pre-show drink. After your evening performance at the Broadway Rose New Stage (September – May) or Deb Fennell Auditorium (June – August), head to McMenamins John Barleycorns for late-night snacking. Finally, tuck in at the Grand Hotel at Bridgeport and enjoy sweet musical dreams.
Tip: John Barleycorns is a performer favorite—you may spot a Broadway Rose artist off-stage!
Stretch your legs and explore some of the 18 miles of trails and nearly 550 acres of parks and open spaces of Tigard—which is working toward becoming the most walkable city in the Pacific Northwest! Park at the Broadway Rose New Stage and walk the Fanno Creek Trail from Grant Avenue to Downtown Tigard, then do some window shopping before getting back onto the trail and heading into Fanno Creek Park. Within a fifteen minute walk through the park, visit the Tigard Farmer’s Market (Sundays, April – October) and peruse the local wares. Head back to the theater and let us entertain you with a Sunday matinee performance!
Tip: Help our city stay green and opt for paper-free walking maps with the Tigard Walks App
You don’t have to break the bank to have a delightful day in Tigard. Start your afternoon with a late lunch (or early dessert!) at Davidson’s Casual Dining, just around the corner from the Broadway Rose New Stage (where you can park for free.) Afterward, do some window shopping downtown or explore the 30 acres of beautiful Fanno Creek Park. Walk back to the theater for your evening performance, and sip one of our Longbottom Coffee & Tea drinks before your show begins. After the production, stop into Tigard’s Burgerville for a special offer found in your playbill.
Tip: There’s no bad seat in the house—save more with a Friday night $30 upper section ticket.
Theatre is one of the best forms of escape—and perfectly compliments a day of pampering! Relax at ME Spa with one of their award-winning spa days before savoring a fruity, delicious lunch from The Bowl & Berry. After you’ve had your fill of the many amenities of Bridgeport Village, allow yourself to be transported by one of our evening productions at the Broadway Rose New Stage (September – May) or Deb Fennell Auditorium (June – August). Make it a stay-cation and spend the night in a local hotel.
Tip: Savor a glass of vino from St. Josef’s Estate Vineyards & Winery in the New Stage auditorium with a Broadway Rose lidded cup.
Paint the Town
Start your day in art-filled downtown Tigard and pop into Live Laugh Love Art for a morning glass blowing class where you will create your own keepsake. Then, after lunch at Thai Delicious on Main Street, let us inspire you with a dazzling matinee performance at the Broadway Rose New Stage (September – May). After the show, continue your art adventure at Vine Gogh. Sip some “liquid encouragement” from their bar before painting the night away with a step-by-step tutorial from local art instructors—no prior art experience required!
Tip: If you love your Vine Gogh experience, join their rewards program to earn free classes!
Tigard is an excellent destination for a summer day of family fun! Even the pickiest of eaters will enjoy a delicious breakfast at Village Inn before heading to a morning performance of one of our exciting summer children’s musicals at Deb Fennell Auditorium (July and August). After the performance, meet the cast outside the theater for pictures and autographs, then head to nearby Cook Park to get the wiggles out on the playground, or have an adventure in the butterfly garden. Once tummies begin to rumble, top off an already excellent day at Big Al’s for food and fun.
Tip: Check out our drama camps—your little ones could be on stage at our next children’s show!
