Women of WaterTower Theatre (WOW!)

The goal of Women of WaterTower Theatre is to offer members the opportunity to connect with an exciting and diverse group of women, a place to expand horizons about the arts with prestigious speakers – often women working in the arts -- held at innovative venues and a forum to help build wider community support for WaterTower Theatre.

WOW! is Chaired by Rose Colarossi. It has a dedicated group of community volunteers responsible for developing all of the group’s activities.

WOW! Steering Committee

Rose Colarossi, Chair

Rose has been involved with WaterTower since 2009.  She became a member of WOW! in 2011 and joined the WOW! Steering Committee in 2013.  Rose has been involved with WTT on many levels including sitting on the Steering Committees, the Community Cast Party as well as the Spotlight Gala 2015.  Rose is also a member of the WaterTower Theatre Board of Directors and serves on its Development Committee. Many of you may also know Rose through her family business, The Egg & I Restaurants with their original location right here in Addison.

Most recently, Rose has started hosting a new online radio show called Hope Through Conversations on Pegasus Netwaves bringing to light issues in an effort to educate and promote awareness and empathy.  A huge advocate of WaterTower Theatre, she has offered WTT the opportunity to be on her show to discuss the importance of the Arts.  She will also be promoting WOW!  In addition, Rose has partnered with one of the stations owners to start an all women’s radio station called LeFemme Focus, which will be supported by an online magazine of the same name, social hours and seminars. She will host a show called WE – Women Entrepreneurs that will give small women-owned business an opportunity to promote their business or service at a reasonable cost. It is evident that Rose is a huge supporter of women.  For over ten years, Rose owned a Curves; an all women’s fitness facility. Through Curves she supported local domestic and homeless shelters in our area.   Through that experience, she learned of a specific need and is now in the process of starting a non-profit that will support domestic and homeless shelters.   

On a personal note, before her entrepreneurial days, Rose was a behavior modification therapist working with children with Autism.  She is a huge advocate of My Possibilities, a non-profit organization for adults with disabilities.  She has sat on many of their advisory committees and their The Egg & I Restaurants participates in their annual Santa Run each year.  Rose and her husband Rob have four children and two grandchildren.  Together they teach Sunday school to 4 and 5 year-olds at Hope Fellowship in Frisco and are both very involved in supporting Build International Ministries, Metro Relief and Tres Dias. They are huge advocates of WaterTower Theatre.  They enjoy sharing their season tickets by inviting new people to each performance.
