Theatre training at Rosebud School of the Arts is about so much more than theatre. When a student navigates their way through the challenges and rigours of what it takes to become a theatre artist they go through a process of self-discovery that causes them to examine who they are, why they have been put on the planet, and what it is they are truly meant to do. They discover who they are in the context of the wider world, who they are in relationship to their fellow human beings, and who they are in the big picture of God’s kingdom. These elements are necessary to becoming a great storyteller, and this process inevitably leads to a kind of transformation that stays with graduates forever. These graduates then go on to plant the seeds for further transformation in the communities where they live and work.
RSA is a Guild school, and the RSA Guild is made up of graduates who are committed, passionate and fiercely loyal. These are the hearts and minds that are slowly bringing about a cultural revolution in Alberta and beyond. RSA Guild members are storytellers with a deep Faith in God who are out there in the world making a difference. They are the ones who are slowly reclaiming the arts for Christ. They are the broken bread and spilled out wine.
As a not-for-profit charitable organization Rosebud School of the Arts relies heavily on the generous support of the Guardians of Education and the Angels of Rosebud. This necessity of this support is critical as RSA does not receive any public education dollars from government. Tuition covers less than half of what it actually costs to train a student at Rosebud School of the Arts. The balance is made up through a combination of donations and a portion of Rosebud Theatre ticket sales.
Rosebud School of the Arts exists “to enrich lives by expressing God’s gifts of creativity, hope, joy, forgiveness, and love through the arts.” And RSA grads are indeed becoming “catalysts for transformation in our world” but we cannot do it alone. We need your help, commitment and passion. RSA students are a solid investment and your “rate of return” will be exponential and you will receive innumerable dividends.
