Big Sonia
Sponsored by Cari & Barry Shein
Recommended for all audiences. 

Standing just four-feet eight-inches tall, Sonia Warshawski spent her teenage years in  concentration camps, and is now among the last remaining Holocaust survivors living in Kansas City. The vibrant 91-year-old diva continues to offer inspiration, sharing her story with students, church groups, prisoners and ex-cons. Even as she seeks to uplift others, the struggle to survive continues, as Sonia faces threat of eviction from a dying shopping mall where she has run her late husband's tailor shop for decades.

The Women's Balcony
Sponsored by Cari & Barry Shein
Recommended for all audiences. 

When the women's balcony in an Orthodox synagogue collapses, leaving the rabbi's wife in a coma and the rabbi in shock, the congregation falls into crisis. Charismatic young Rabbi David appears to be a savior after the accident, but slowly starts pushing his fundamentalist ways and tries to take control. This tests the women's friendships and creates a gender rift in the devout community in Jerusalem.  

Tickets can be purchased through our  partner
