Your favorite late-nite nun returns with a laugh-packed holiday-themed show. Hilarity ensues as Sister tackles the question that has been puzzling historians throughout the ages: What happened to the Magi's gold? We already know that Mary put the frankincense and myrrh to use as potpourri to make the stable smell better. Think CSI: Bethlehem as Sister engages the audience -- you! -- to help her solve the mystery of the gold through a forensic examination of the nativity scene. Learn More

A charming, well-done musical production focusing on a part of American history that many don't know about. I strongly recommend it for all ages, but especially intermediate grades, junior, and senior high students studying American history.

Looking For Home is a new musical that examines the historical railroad transporting of orphaned children from the streets of New York City to the Great Plains. These “orphan trains” ran from 1856 to 1930 and it’s estimated that over 200,000 children were relocated or “placed out” by the Children’s Aid Society or similar organizations.
This world premiere beautifully follows the true story of 11-year-old Anna Hoffman and her siblings who were successfully “placed” in a small town in Kansas in 1923. This is a heartwarming story about courage and the healing powers that make a family … home.
