Thank You, Jimmy Stewart!
"Thank You, Jimmy Stewart!" is a condensed one person tribute to three of Mr. Stewart's films. "Mr. Smith goes to Washington," "Harvey," and "It’s a Wonderful Life!". The show is presented by Christopher David Collins and proceeds benefit the Jimmy Stewart Museum in Indiana, PA. The stories are told from the perspective of the characters that Mr. Stewart brought to life in each of the three films. Mr. Collins also portrays some other very special guests through the magic of pure storytelling.

War Horse
England, 1914. As World War One begins, Joey, young Albert’s beloved horse, is sold to the cavalry and shipped from England to France. He’s soon caught up in enemy fire, and fate takes him on an extraordinary journey, serving on both sides before finding himself alone in no man’s land. Astonishing life-sized puppets created by South Africa's Handspring Puppet Company become breathing, galloping, charging horses strong enough for men to ride.
