The Children’s Crusade Touring Company will be performing their original play, Children’s Crusade, outdoors in the Temple Beth Sholom parking lot on July 22nd as part of their tour around the Northeast, New England and Midwest.

Many people believed live theater was impossible during the pandemic, but this company of NYU Tisch Graduates found a way to make it happen. After premiering in Bloomington, Indiana in October 2020 as part of The Hundredth Hill’s Emerging Theatre Artist Residency, the Children’s Crusade Touring Company  is now bringing theater to communities across the country that haven’t been able to enjoy live performances in over a year.

Children’s Crusade is the story of eight low income kids from Utica, New York who believe one among them to be a prophet. After an inexplicable message from God, it is up to them to travel to the holy land and find Him. Chronicling their journey from their small cul-de-sac all the way to Jerusalem, we watch as these kids adventure beyond the only world they’ve ever known and discover surprising new things about themselves. Although they come from different ideologies, they must rely on each other in order to journey out and fulfill their goals.

Recommended for ages 13 and up but fit for the whole family!

Tickets: $15/students and seniors, $22/general admission.
