Thomas Theatre, Oregon Shakespeare Festival

A sophisticated and flexible theatre for this prestigious professional theatre organization.  Both theatre configuration and stage production can be changed over from afternoon to evening performance using lifts, seating wagons, and a flying soffit.  Rose was part of an intensive programming phase to plan and describe every space, function, adjacency, and system.

Purple Masque Theatre, Kansas State University

When KSU decided to replace an aging student performance space crammed under the seating of a WWI memorial stadium, the location for the new incarnation turned out to be…under the other side of the stadium.  Rose, her colleagues, and the design team developed an intimate facility which found uses for every odd space and space for every necessary function.
