Drawing from an exceptional pool of local talent, Prairie Fire Theatre makes high quality, professional music theatre and light opera accessible to children, adults and seniors in our community, thus enhancing the quality of life of the residents of Bloomington-Normal and the surrounding area.
Prairie Fire Theatre was founded in 1998 by local artist Robert Mangialardi. Our initial focus was solely on bringing high quality, professional music theater and light opera to adult audiences. In 2003, we expanded our mission to include elementary school aged children by producing and taking our children’s opera to local elementary schools.

It’s 1786 and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is turning out music right and left–sonatas, concertos, enormous symphonies.This guy is prolific times ten. At its heart, this operatic romp looks at the importance of dreaming big dreams, how music makes everything better, and the sheer wonder of everyday life. The music is all Mozart, all the time, and the entire show is packed with zippy fun. Kids get to enter the topsy-turvy operatic worlds of three enduring blockbusters–The Marriage of Figaro, The Magic Flute, and Don Giovanni.
