"A new Canadian treasure"

Now in its third year, "This is Rosewood: Tales from the Tavern" has been a hit with audiences show after show. It’s a hilarious one-man small-town comedy written by Peter Paylor and played with a master’s touch by veteran actor Rick Zimmerman. Rosewood is every small town. The town you grew up in or passed through or know someone who lived there back in the day. It’s the town where the main street is called Main Street, where there’s one café and one tavern and one bakery and one bank – one funeral home, too, and that’s only open when Dougie the undertaker isn’t busy being Dougie the mayor. Zimmerman brings everyone in Rosewood to life through the stories of Stanley Olmstead of Stanley’s Tavern. You'll meet Earl and Otis and Len and Clendon. Dougie the mayor, of course. And L.B. Sweeney. She might be the best damn hockey player the town's ever seen.
