Toledo Opera Camp at Marathon Center for the Performing Arts

9:00 a.m.-3:30 p.m. (Monday through Friday) Ages 11-18

July 16-27, 2018

Participants will immerse themselves in singing, dance, and theatre in this two-week summer intensive experience during which they will mount a fully staged production of Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Pirates of Penzance. G&S provides the perfect introduction for young singers into the world of opera.  Each day starts with a vocal warm-up integrated with physical movement to wake up voices and bodies, followed by theatre improvisation games designed to encourage the development of ensemble. The rest of the day will be spent learning staging and music of “Pirates” in small group sessions, ending with our full ensemble learning choreography for the group numbers in the production.

Opera Camp Leaders: Drs. Drake Dantzler and Alta Boover are both teachers and active performers of opera, operetta, musical theatre and concert works.  They’ve performed at venues around the country including Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, and here with your very own Toledo Opera. They are both on the Music Faculty at Oakland University in Rochester, MI, and have also both spent several summers on the faculty of the Interlochen Summer Arts Camp.

Camp Specifics:

  • The camp is open to all students aged 11-18.
  • Camp will be from 9am to 3:30pm each day. Everyone participating in the camp must be available for all camp activities.
  • The end of camp performance of The Pirates of Penzance will take place on the last day of camp, Friday, July 27 at 1:30pm. A post-performance reception will follow.
  • Each participant is expected to bring a nutritious lunch Monday through Friday.
