Otterbein Opera Workshop to Produce “Chicken Little: A Fable for Wise Children”

April 12, 2017
Otterbein University

Westerville, OH—Otterbein Opera Workshop will perform the children’s opera “Chicken Little: A Fable for Wise Children” by Bruce Trinkley at 8 p.m. on Sunday, April 23, in Riley Auditorium at the Battelle Fine Arts Center. The performance is free and open to the public.

The opera relays the traditional children’s fairy tale about Chicken Little, who thinks “the sky is falling.” Goaded on by Foxy Loxy, Chicken Little runs around trying to convince the other birds, Henny Penny, Goosey Loosey, Ducky Lucky and Turkey Lurkey, that the sky is falling and that they should run away. He offers them “sanctuary” which is really just his way of trapping them so he can have a tasty meal. The day is saved by the Wren, Quail, and Warbler who are wise to Foxy’s trick. The production is directed by Karen Eckenroth with piano accompaniment by Irma Khouw.
