Theatre provides so much more than an opportunity for escapism - it allows us to connect with the communities around us, to open us to experiences and people we may never encounter, to question our perceived knowledge and preconceptions, and in doing so theatre brings us closer together.

Roust are proud to be supporting the talented Pete Holmberg in readings of two of his plays - 'Personnel Best' & 'Endless Closure' - as part of Emerging Artists Theatre's New Work Series. They are happening on one night - Thursday March 8 @ 9pm - and only $10!

The New Work Series is devoted to the writer, and at the end of the show the playwright gets to ask the audience some important creative developmental questions. We would love for your support to help this important process.

Tickets and information available here: https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3336344, or at the door on the evening of the reading.

Looking forward to seeing you there and hearing your voices to help develop some important theatre!

This wonderful segment on ValleyPBS highlighting the return of JANKA, a play by Oscar Speace and starring Janice Noga (based on a letter by Janka Festinger and a book by Dave Speace), as a gift to the people of Fresno, CA for supporting the play's journey to New York. Roust had the distinct honor of producing this one woman tour-de-force Off-Broadway. Wonderful and moving memories for all involved.

A play based on a woman's experience surviving the holocaust played at Fresno's 2nd Space.
