Kate Tombaugh, a Mezzo-soprano opera performer, will present her one-woman show, “It Just Takes One” at 7:30 p.m. Thursday in the Doudna Fine Arts Center Black Box Theater.

Tombaugh wrote the show, which is a musical that features only herself, about her, “roller-coaster ride” embarking on a career in opera while struggling to balance her social life, according to a press release.

Originally from Streator, Illinois, Tombaugh started her opera career when she placed third in the Chicago Regional MONC Auditions, hosted by NYC’s Metropolitan Opera, according to a press release.

“After her win, her opera career only progressed with various performance highlights,” the press release highlights. “She has performed as a soloist at Carnegie Hall, sang lead roles in opera productions, and has won other vocal competitions.”

Tickets the show are $10 for general admission, $10 for seniors (62+) and $5 for students.

They can be purchased online at www.eiu.edu/doudna or at the Doudna Fine Arts Center Box Office.

Box Office hours are Tuesday through Thursday 11:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Friday 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and one hour prior to the scheduled performance.
