Audiences of all ages are invited to two free matinee performances of the one-act opera My Head is Full of Colors by composer Chris Pratorius with libretto by Nicole Paiement. Based on the children's book by Catherine Friend.

Maria awakes one morning to find her normally plain brown hair replaced by all the colors of the rainbow! Her head is "full of colors," and on this day she draws and paints like never before. Each day she wakes up with something unexpected on her head and experiences the world in new and different ways. Her father welcomes her surprising appearance with loving arms and fascinated observation. My Head is Full of Colors is a life affirming self esteem lesson that ignites imagination and reflects the joys of life and learning.

Two performances: 11:00AM & 1:00PM
Doors open 30 minutes before each curtain time.

Stage Director: Sheila Willey 
Conductor: William Long
