Program Description

Join us for a performance of the children’s opera “Treble Trouble”, a production of Prairie Fire Theatre and Illinois Wesleyan University! This fun-filled show is approximately 40 minutes long, and seating will be available on a first-come, first-seated basis.

About Treble Trouble:
The Land of Melodia needs a heads up because Count Sticky Fingers is planning to steal all their notes and feed them into the Music Munching Machine! And those notes include the magic Star Notes that must be hung and sung in the palace courtyard each night as the moon rises. That ritual is the only protection Melodians have from the Petrification Curse, which has begun to leak out anyway. Before you know it, Queen Adagio's legs will be turning to stone! It's up to Princess Poco. Can she recapture the notes and reverse the curse before it's too late?

This operatic romp introduces night sky constellations and musical concepts such as the treble clef and how notes work. At its heart, it explores the ways music belongs to everyone, how we're braver than we think, and the fact that anyone can step up and do the right thing. 

(Kids are invited to sit on the floor in front of the performance while their families sit further back in chairs.)
