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

I have viewed a number of 'Christmas Carols' in the past. The Burnsville theater offers an excellent venue, and the beautiful decorative lights outside began the Christmas spirit. The play presented one of the best Scrooges I have ever heard/seen. All the actors did a good job, though some of the voices could not be easily heard. I would have enjoyed it more without the noise of the backstage sets being moved. Would have liked more music integrated into the play. Otherwise, it is worth viewing.
Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol”, one of the most popular holiday traditions, comes to the Burnsville Performing Arts Center for five performances only complete with the spectacular sets, costumes, props and special effects created for the 2008 Kodak Theatre production in Los Angeles that starred Christopher Lloyd and John Goodman. The narration was recorded for this production in London in 1992 by the legendary Academy Award-winning actor Sir John Gielgud. Be sure to enjoy this classic tale of redemption…..for kids…and kids at heart
