Watch a video of “Opera Under the Stars”.
Many thanks to Peg Schickedanz for this lovely sketch and her words of encouragement!
“I have enjoyed so many Prairie Fire productions! The talent they present is always first-class. I like the combination of all kinds of music and different talent. The children’s productions are also so much fun. One of the main reasons I like to support this local theatre is the impact they make on school-age children. Many kids have never before seen live theatre which Prairie Fire brings to so many central Illinois schools. Thanks for continuing to provide this great community asset!”
“Eva and I have been coming to the Prairie Fire Theatre from its inception. It fills the community’s need for musical theatre. The variety of the shows from Gilbert and Sullivan to many other light musicals such as Gypsy and the Secret Garden has been a delight to share with friends and family over the years. It’s been worth the drive to Bloomington from Milwaukee to enjoy an evening of entertainment. My mother, Jean McCrossin, was a long-time supporter of the Prairie Fire Theatre. She always looked forward to going to the Gala each spring as much as us.”
“Prairie Fire Theatre has been such a joy for me…..sometimes I attended the same production twice to hear it again. To have Gilbert and Sullivan performed locally was such a wonderful treat. Thank you, thank you….I can’t wait to see what you dream up next.”
“Ray and I are longtime supporters of Prairie Fire Theater. They fill a unique place in our community! Not only do they have a terrific Champaign entertainment event that we look forward to every year, but they also have first rate musicals. Who can forget their Gilbert and Sullivan shows, or My Fair Lady? And finally, to cap it off, they take fun musical shows to our school kids! Giving kids the opportunity to appreciate musical theater is such a marvelous gift to our community! ”
“I’d like to give my heart filled applause to Prairie Fire Theater for their years of providing high level entertainment to us all. From their Gala to their original children’s operas, and full productions, I have nothing but wonderful praise to heap on them. I love the way their events are fun and exciting and at the same time professional and first class. I can hardly wait for their next event. Thanks to all who keep the curtains up. ”
This made our day! We received this encouraging note from Peg Schickedanz, one of our long-time supporters. We loved the artwork and the sentiment.
