For over 10 seasons, Orlando Shakes has partnered with Rosen Hotels & Resorts to produce this amazing event. Without the hard work and generosity of the entire Rosen staff, we would not be able to begin each season in such grand style. Our hearts are filled with gratitude for the entire staff of Rosen Hotels & Resorts. â€œHow far that little candle throws his beams! So shines a good deed in a weary world.â€? William Shakespeare
