The Picnic Operetta is an accessible performance because of your generous contributions.

We encourage a $10 - 20 suggested donation per person at performances.

A new adaptation of Haydns rarely performed 1773 marionette opera, featuring the music of Queen!

Returning from space exploration in a far off galaxy, space cadets Jupiter and Mercury return to earth to find humanity decimated by plague. Surviving citizens are cold, suspicious, and hooked on banality. Our gods-in-disguise prowl about town looking for someplace to unveil their gender-bending extravaganza. No one will give these gods a chance but the down-trodden tavern of Philemon and Baucis.  

This production explores fear, displacement, and hospitality to strangers from another world. We celebrate the natural human yearning to heal the planet  while gazing into the great beyond. This space-age, romantic adventure features the beloved melodies of Haydns The Creation and the defiant rock n roll of Queen! That means German opera and oratorio with the music of Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor, and John Deacon.

This one-of-a-kind show is written and directed by Elizabeth Windnagel and Scotty Reynolds with music director Gary Ruschman.
