Legend has it that Sidney Poitier was so moved by the story of The Lilies of the Field that he waived his usual salary -- not knowing he would later win worldwide fame (and an Oscar) for his portrayal of the hard-headed Homer Smith. From the moment it was published as a novel by William E. Barret, The Lilies of the Field has had a special effect on people. Experience it yourself when Open Window Theatre presents this heart-warming stage adaptation. Headed west in search of a new beginning in the mid-1950s, black Southern Baptist itinerant worker Homer Smith encounters a group of Catholic nuns scratching out an existence in the remote Southwest. Mother Maria Marthe, convinced that Homer was sent to them by God to build them a chapel, persuades him to stay (without pay) and take on this seemingly impossible task. The faith of all are tested, proving that friendships and miracles alike come in all forms. Learn More

Kudos to the young performers. This performance of Tommy was beyond our expectations. The singing, choreography and accompanying music were very professional and energetic! The Cargill Stage at the Children's Theatre is small enough that every seat is a good one.

The Who’s Tommy is a roof-raising musical explosion based on a concept album by the band The Who. This exhilarating story of hope, healing and the human spirit is filled with iconic hits. After witnessing a traumatic event, young Tommy Walker goes deaf, blind and mute. Cut off from society, he is ridiculed and taken advantage of until Tommy discovers a talent for pinball wizardry that allows him to break through, inspiring youth around the world. The Who’s Tommy contains great classic rock songs including “Pinball Wizard,” “I’m Free” and “Sensation.”
