That depends on what you mean by "work". There'd be no AF or AE. Everything will be manual. Use your 18-55 for a while, and then switch to MF and M (Manual) Mode, and see which you like better.

A zoom lens, like the Sigma 50-150/2.8 HSM or the 70-200/2.8 HSM that shoturtle mentioned, will give you more flexibility, and the T1i can capture good images at higher ISO settings, so that...

That lens isn't particularly suitable for much. The Tamron 70-300 Di LD is a better lens that costs about the same. In a pinch, either could be used for outdoor sports or wildlife, but they don't...
