Next Performance

Mozart's The Magic Flute!

CANCELLED due to Coronavirus (COVID-19) Concerns

Due to the growing number of midwestern states that are closing public schools and Universities, or are under Gubernatorial bans of large gatherings, we are announcing the cancellation of all performances under our auspices.  At this time, we do not have word on rescheduling. 

Come along as Tamino and Papageno embark on a quest to save the kidnapped Princess Pamina at the command of the evil Queen of the Night. With the help of a magical flute and set of bells, their journey leads them to Sarastro's temple where a series of trials and tests await them. This 90-minute family friendly production is sung in English and full of some of Mozart's most famous tunes!
