Fire In Boomtown

The Story of the Great Chicago Fire

Winner of Parents’ Choice Best 25 of 25 Years 


WINNER of the EdPress Distinguished Achievement Award!

Los Angeles Times

"With poignant testimony from eyewitnesses and vivid songs, Amy Lowe and Megan Wells bring to life a city that grew too fast, with dangerously little planning; the chilling song "Mud, Wood, Drought, Blunder & Wind," tells of what contributed to the devastating tragedy."

Chicago Parent Magazine

"Judging from the response of the rapt audience to Fire In Boomtown, Lowe and Wells have a hit."


"On Sunday, October 8, 1871, the city of Chicago was virtually destroyed by a ferocious fire. This story-song re-enactment was taped in a live performance. The performers researched actual testimonials from survivors and newspaper articles, letters, notebooks, etc., to make an exciting story that stays true to the facts. Wells does a fine job of creating Mrs. O'Leary's Irish brogue and characterizing the chief fire marshall's description of exhausted firemen. The storytellers conclude by celebrating the energetic rebuilding of the city. A first-class history lesson in an appealing format"
