Rose Island Playhouse & Company, Inc.
Rose Island Playhouse & Company, Inc. is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to educate, enrich, entertain, and provide our community with a well-rounded family-oriented experience in a theatrical venue. Our long-range goal is to build a facility in Charlestown, Indiana, which helps support this mission and which will be available for community use. Our current home is the Charlestown Arts & Enrichment Center, 999 Water Street, Charlestown, Indiana
Each year, the Rose Island Playhouse Board of Directors awards a scholarship to a local high school student who is active in the performing arts. Scholarships are based on the student's essay, academic record and recommendations. Scholarship applications can be obtained from any board member or downloaded on the scholarship page. (Note that scholarships were halted temporarily due to the pandemic. Watch for them to resume in 2022.)
Rose Island Playhouse is a labor of love! Actors, directors, board members, set builders, prop and sound assistants, are all working unpaid because they truly want to bring quality theater to the Charlestown community.
But it still takes money to put on a show. Performance rights, costumes, sets and props all take money to produce a high-quality, entertaining production. Your donations and ticket purchases help us to keep bringing family-friendly theater for the viewing pleasure of Charlestown and the surrounding area. Please contact us or call 812-289-1329 to become a donor or member of
Rose Island Playhouse.
