Austrian stage actress Lilia Skala flees the Third Reich, escaping to New York City, where she finds herself working in a zipper factory to make ends meet. But the resilient faith that carried her across the ocean brings her back to her passions— the stage and the silver screen—eventually sharing the Oscar stage with Sydney Poitier for her portrayal of the Mother Superior in Lilies of the Field.
Her granddaughter Libby, who has yet to discover the strength within, goes on a journey of her own as she guides us through the incredible life story of her grandmother.

Special Relaxed Performance on July 17 at 11:00am.
A Relaxed Performance is designed to welcome audience members who would benefit from a more relaxed sensory experience and casual environment. Anyone can purchase tickets to attend the relaxed performance but the people who have gained the most benefit from relaxed performances in the past include individuals with autism spectrum disorder, dementia, sensory disorders, young families with small children and more!
During this performance the theatre experience will have small changes to the audience expectations, environment and production to create a more "relaxed" environment. Changes to Lilia! include:
- The lobby doors may be opened early to allow for a more calm, casual entry to the theatre
- Patrons are welcome to come and go during the performance.
- The expectations of complete silence and complete stillness in the audience during the performance will be relaxed to accommodate people for whom this is not realistic
- House lighting in the auditorium will not be lowered to complete darkness while the production is on.
This is a sweet story about a granddaughter discovering just how big her grandmother’s life is. I love that! Lilia Skala was a woman of stature and faith who was ahead of her time!
