The Rose Theater to Present Corduroy October 29 – November 14

The Rose Theater ( is excited to announce that their production of Corduroy will run October 29 – November 14. Based on the 1968 children’s books, Corduroy and A Pocket for Corduroy, written by Don Freeman, and adapted for the stage by Barry Kornhauser, Corduroy shares the story of a toy bear in a department store and the little girl who wishes she could buy him.

“What is really cool about this piece is that we are going to be using a fairly large puppet version of Corduroy that Stephanie Jacobson, a really brilliant director and educator on our team, has made,” says Matt Gutschick, artistic director.

Corduroy will be presented October 29 through November 4 with performances Fridays at 7 p.m., Saturdays at 2 and 5 p.m., and Sundays at 2 p.m. Interpretation and captioning for the hearing impaired and audio description services for the blind will be offered at the 2 p.m. show on Saturday, November 6. A sensory-friendly performance will be presented on Saturday, November 6 at 5 p.m. Children of all ages will delight at Corduroy’s antics in the 75-minute show.

The Rose Theater remains dedicated to its mission of inspiring young people and their families to discover the magic of theater, to find their voices, and enrich their communities. For more information or to see a schedule of the theater’s lineup, visit
