Based on the novel that inspired the Oscar-winning movie, Babe, The Sheep Pig tells a thrilling tale about sharing your gifts with the world. When a tiny piglet arrives at the Hogget Farm, he is mentored by a wise dog named Fly who shares the secrets of sheepherding with the young pig. Babe soon learns that, to his and to Farmer Hogget’s amazement, he has a unique gift for gently herding sheep. But will Babe succeed on the largest stage of all, the Grand Challenge Sheep Dog Trials? Or will he be laughed off the stage?
Babe audiences will find that even traditional theater rules have been upended in this production. Families will enter the auditorium to find a quaint village fair taking place before the show starts. Children are invited to come onstage prior to the show where they can engage in carnival games reminiscent of a time gone by. Seating is even available onstage for families who wish to do so, allowing a stage-eye-view of the production.

Seating begins 20 minutes prior to showtime
When May and Charlie joined hundreds of other Americans who went to Mississippi in the summer of 1964 for a massive voter registration drive, they had no idea their lives were about to change forever. As students at Howard University, their campus activism had been met with calls to their parents and threats of expulsion. The stakes in Mississippi were a lot higher. White supremacists, outraged at the challenge to their segregated way of life, responded with violence that left three civil rights workers dead and many wounded. Years later, May and Charlie are still searching for a way back from the damage that was done to them during that long ago “Freedom Summer.”
BOURBON AT THE BORDER takes a look at the lives of two ordinary people who gave everything they had to the African–American freedom struggle but who have now been largely forgotten. In telling May and Charlie’s story, BOURBON puts a human face on the unknown soldiers of the civil rights movement by refusing to romanticize them even as it honors their specific sacrifices and the price they paid.

A Raisin in the Sun
September 7th-October 1st – Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays at 7:30pm – Sundays 2:00 pm
Location: First Central Congregational Church, 421 South 36th Street, Omaha, NE 68131
Brigit Saint Brigit will open its 25th anniversary season with Lorraine Hansberry’s 1959 American masterpiece A Raisin in The Sun. The twenty-nine-year-old playwright’s powerful work sings as poignantly today as it did when it premiered on Broadway 60 years ago with Sidney Poitier, Ruby Dee, and Louis Gossett.
The story: “In a slum in Chicago’s South Side, fifth and sixth generations of an African American family dream of escape. A grandmother and her daughter-in-law want better for their children; a son/husband/father chafes against his low-paid, dead-end job; a marriage cracks under financial pressures; a daughter/sister aims to become a doctor; a child wants to play.
Will their dreams, in the words of black American poet Langston Hughes (1902-67), ‘dry up/ like a raisin in the sun…/ Or [will they] explode’?
As Hansberry once said: ‘In order to create the universal, you must pay very great attention to the specific,’ and this drama resonates with other lives similarly cramped by poverty… .The main focus, though, is firmly and deliberately on black experience… . The power and craft of the writing make A Raisin in the Sun as moving today as it was then. Entrenched attitudes about race make the challenges its characters face still relevant…” [The Guardian]
Cast Includes: Jason Gray, Stacy Hopkins, TammyRa Jackson, Brodhi McClymont, Regina Palmer, Kurt Sage, DJ Tyree, Kathy Tyree, Bird Williams

Free Performance at Creighton University, Lied Mainstage
Friday, September 22 @ 7:30 PM
“These violent delights have violent ends.”
Romeo and Juliet, II.6
Shakespeare On Tour introduces thousands of students to Shakespeare during the months of September and October, when we take Shakespeare’s work into the classrooms and communities of Nebraska.
A community is divided, wracked with fear and rocked by violence. Romeo desperately struggles to retain what is left of art, beauty, and love. Juliet, clinging to her family for protection and strength, has fallen victim to their blind hatred. Despite the ongoing civil destruction, it is the internal conflict between head and heart that holds this world hostage. Presented through a heightened theatrical lens, this Romeo and Juliet seeks to lay bare the means of production, transforming characters before the audience and stripping away the disguise of live performance. This world must change or be forever broken.

Audrey II, the plant, named in honor of Seymour’s secret love, grows and increases in size and needs more and more blood to thrive—but problems develop when the plant becomes uncontrollable. Throw in a mad dentist, a trio of lovely singers, and unusual characters, and the scene is set for an unusual musical.

How Very UnFairy: Into the Wicked Woods
Once upon a time…Disney conspired with your parents to lie to you about what really happens deep within the enchanted forest. Behind the “safe for bedtime” stories, the more disturbing truth waits to be discovered but the only way to find it is to journey into the wicked woods.
Nothing is as it seems and nothing quite makes sense in the wicked woods. In fact, very few will make it out alive. Join us for a dream-like surrealist trip through some of our collective culture’s oldest stories. The creative team sets out to cover 100 different fairy tales through visual art, performance, and food in the course of a single evening.

The Golden Squash (Soup)
Garlic roasted squash pureed into a creamy broth soup. As the story goes in this Tibetan Tale, be kind and good and you will be rewarded with a squash of solid gold. Those guilty of envy will have instead be served squash with a crazy guy in it who cuts off your head.
Four-and-Twenty Chickens Baked in a Pot Pie
Sing a song of six pence, a handful of rye… we skipped the black birds though. Chicken and vegetables in a rich cream sauce topped with a puff pastry crust. Who would want to eat blackbirds anyway?
Snow White Berry Apple Pie
Skin white as snow, lips red as…berries? A very sweet berry apple pie with a crumble top. In the original tale, it is not true loves kiss that awakens her, but the prince’s servants dropping her casket and dislodging the poison apple from her throat.
