Rose Theatre

The Rose Theatre was developed in Brampton’s Market Square as part of the revitalization of the city’s historic downtown core.

As a key member of the design team, Novita’s role included facility planning, design of the main auditorium, and the design and specification of theatrical equipment.

Novita’s unique seating and sightline design has been widely acclaimed. The 880-seat auditorium is reminiscent of the grand era of European theatre, while the large stage and backstage provide the modern requirements for shows of all kinds, including full digital broadcast capabilities. The Rose Theatre also has a 160-seat secondary hall and a community meeting room.

In the Rose Theatre’s first year of operation, audience attendance surpassed estimates by 75%. The Theatre has been continuously booked since opening day, and has been a key factor in the successful ongoing revitalization of Brampton’s downtown.

Novita did a terrific job of designing this auditorium. It feels as though you can reach out and touch the performers, even from the furthest seat in the house. – Brampton Mayor, Susan Fennell
