Panel show regular Josh Widdecombe also performs at the venue in October with his Incidentally gig on the 27th of the month.
The laughs don’t stop there with Phil Jupitus on the bill on November 15.
His gig centres on the character-based comedy show which took Edinburgh Fringe Festival by storm last year.
There’s no shortage of music in the new season schedule either.
Renowned Elvis tribute act, Lee Memphis King brings his One Night Of Elvis Show on October 4 and The Carrivick Sisters bring their bluegrass influences to the venue on October 8.
Classical musician and former BBC Young Musician Of The Year Freddy Kempf performs on October 19 and Rolling Stones tribute band, Counterfeit Stones are at the theatre on November 1.
There’s magical ballet in the form of The Nutcracker on November 6 and you can celebrate arguably the best movie soundtrack of all time with A Night Of Dirty Dancing on November 14.
And let’s not forget the annual Christmas pantomime which this year is Jack and the Beanstalk from November 30 to January 4.
The production even features a 14 foot walking, talking animatronic giant that promises to have children gripped to the end of their seats.
Beckie Smith, marketing and press manager at the Roses Theatre, said: “Theatres always seem to go up a gear in the autumn, as people look for something to pass away those longer evenings.
“We’re really pleased with this programme this year because there’s a lot of high quality drama.
“Of course, the season highlight is the annual professional pantomime, which sees thousands of people flock to the theatre every year.”
