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

Rosalind, the daughter of banished Duke, falls in love with Orlando at a wrestling match, but her usurping uncle banishes her from court. Disguised as a boy, she seeks out her father and his friends in the Forest of Arden, and it is there she meets Orlando again. Filled with disguises, satire, slapstick, and passion (and a few really bad love poems), this gloriously funny romance is not to be missed!
