Join us for a live theater experience that will leave you inspired, as the power of hope and love is brought to life on stage in a way you've never seen before.


SYNOPSIS: Inspired by Miguel de Cervantes' literary masterpiece "Don Quixote," this Tony Award-winning Broadway musical takes you on an unforgettable adventure into the mind of an aging, eccentric knight-errant. Imprisoned during the Spanish Inquisition, Cervantes captivates his fellow prisoners by transforming into the chivalrous Don Quixote. Embarking on a daring quest to right all wrongs and become a true "Man of La Mancha," Quixote's journey becomes a tapestry of hope, honor, and the pursuit of dreams.


Featuring iconic songs like, "The Impossible Dream" - Quixote's soaring anthem of hope and idealism that will inspire you to reach beyond the ordinary and dream the impossible; "Dulcinea" - a tender ballad where Quixote passionately serenades his beloved Aldonza, seeing the beauty in her that she cannot see herself; and "I, Don Quixote" - an exuberant declaration of Quixote's identity and purpose as a knight-errant, setting the stage for his remarkable journey, don't miss your chance to be part of this inspiring stage experience!


Join us at the Rose Center Theater and witness the indomitable spirit of Don Quixote as he sets forth on his epic quest. Immerse yourself in a world where reality blurs with imagination, and the power of love and hope transcends all boundaries.
