Kids Under 3 Are Free!
Two aspiring young opera singers named Rufus Raindog and Rosa Bush work in a restaurant while auditioning and practicing; preparing themselves for a real opera role in Blue Sky Puppet Theatre's The Barker of Seville. At one audition Rosa gets a small part while Rufus runs afoul of the melodramatically sinister Leonardo Vespucci Provologni Hold the Mustard Fulla Bologna, the self proclaimed "World's Greatest Opera Singer." Rufus begins to doubt his abilities but through the help of his teacher, the delightfully wacky Dr. Bonehead, Rufus regains his confidence and in spite of Leonardo's devious plot, Rufus prevails and realizes his dreams.
