We just attended the theatre for dinner and the show Miracle on 34th Street and must say they had a nice buffet set out with a good variety of salads, etc for appetizers and turkey and ham along with hot dishes and deserts..

Miracle on 34th St, the November-December presentation was outstanding. The actors were all strong, and huge kudos to eight-year-old Kaia Rose Wilson for her compelling portrayal of Susan Walker and "the girl," As always, lunch aka the first turkey dinner of the season, was yummy with a huge variety of appies, salads, entrees and desserts buffet style. A pre-Christmas treat... More

Rosebud never disappoints, especially at Christmas time. You come for the theatre but always get the full experience. Everyone in town is super friendly and are genuinely happy you have come. The meal was generous and very tasty with a great variety of choices from salads to mains and deserts. We ate too much. Before the show there was ample... More

Do IT - you will not be disappointed . Yes I am talking about driving out to the middle of nowhere to see a play. Rosebud, a very small farm community years past its prime has reinvented itself into a regional ( and Western Canadian ) hub for live theatre and art. Students live in town and produce FIRST rate...

Love going to Rosebud dinner theatre. The plays are always good and the acting is super. You have a buffet dinner first which is always delicious with lots of nice choices. We make an evening of it and spend the night at one of the Bed and Breakfasts in Rosebud. Highly recommend going. They also have marines.

We've enjoyed performances in Rosebud many times. It's always a treat. The buffet meal is good with a wide variety of selections. There are gluten free options as well. It's delightful to have Rosebud entertainers coming by your table with music and singing during the meal. They take time to chat with the diners and answer any questions you may... More
