CAMPAIGN UPDATE: Groundbreaking began on May 5, 2021 for our long anticipated expansion to the New Stage theater. Originally planned for last April, the uncertainty of the pandemic put the project on hold. Despite the difficulties of 2020, the theater finished the year in a strong financial position. In March, the company’s Board of Directors voted unanimously to go ahead with the plans for the building expansion. Read the press release here.

Broadway Rose Theatre Company believes in the power of musical theatre to bring people together through the universal language of music and movement. With professional productions, educational camps and workshops for children and teens, and hands-on training for emerging artists and technicians, we pursue our mission to create unparalleled musical theatre experiences that invigorate audiences and enrich our communities.

Artists, audiences, students, and community members are maximizing every inch of building space and overflowing into temporary and rented workspaces to join us in this work. We have the opportunity to expand our facility so that individuals can more fully access and participate in musical theatre, while we continue to present productions of exceptional artistic quality.

The time for this critical expansion is now. We are ideally positioned to launch this next stage with a robust base of loyal and enthusiastic supporters, long-term relationships with community leaders, a healthy, debt-free financial standing; a proven record of responsible stewardship of resources, and a strong, stable staff. In addition, we have signed a new lease with the Tigard-Tualatin School District to ensure our home for decades to come.

Our budget for this project is $3.5 million. With nearly $3.4 million already committed from our strong base of support, we now need your help to raise the remaining funds needed to open our doors wider to the community.

Help us create a lasting legacy of professional musical theatre in our community.
