The Rose and the Rime is the 2008 ACTF and Kennedy Center Honors Award-winning show by Nathan Allen, Chris Mathews and Jake Minton. In this modern take on the world of fables, this is the story of the fictional town of Radio Falls, which has been frozen over by the Rime Witch for as long as anyone can remember. Rose, a young girl and the town’s shining beacon of hope, takes it upon herself to journey to the witch in the hope of finding out the truth about her town and changing fate.
