Due to the dedication, skills, and commitment of the best Board of Directors, staff, and artists working in the region, The Purple Rose Theatre is busier than ever, planning and executing the most amazing handcrafted artisanal work we can create for you.
In many ways, this past season of plays was our most successful to date. A record numbers of patrons made the effort to find their way to Chelsea to share an afternoon/evening with us in the purple seats. We laughed, choked back tears, and perhaps shared an insight or two about what it means to be human.
The Purple Rose 28th season is an exciting mix of comedy and tragedy, new plays and an American classic.
