The Child’s Frightful Fantasy – a children’s opera

When an angry child defies his mother, destroying his room and torturing animal friends instead of finishing his homework, the broken furniture, wounded pets, and even disgruntled Mr. Arithmetic himself decide to teach the boy a lesson.

The 20 characters in this whimsical opera are imaginatively portrayed here by just 4 singers. Best of all, children and the young at heart in the audience can join in the performance as a sing along chorus, with the aid of puppets, and a design inspired by American pop art icon Roy Lichtenstein. This production will surely delight children, parents, and teachers alike!

Instead of paying admission, we invite our audience to bring canned foods or make financial contributions to the Oregon Food Bank.
