The Texas Repertory Theatre Company and the Houston Grand Opera (HGO) have collaborated to bring a “Creat an Opera” camp to northwest Houston for children entering grades 3-6 in the fall of 2011.
Professional teaching artists from HGO will conduct the class. Participants will read a selected story to create the opera, using story boards to write scenes, design sets, write the chorus, perform mini-auditions for principal and chorus roles, work in teams to build sets, props and costumes, and rehearse. The kids will perform their opera on the last day of camp, Friday, July 29.
Registration per student is $298 with sibling discounts available.
The camp will take place at The Texas Repertory Theatre, 14243 Stuebner Airline Road, just north of the intersection of FM 1960 West (Cypress Creek Parkway).
This camp is expected to fill early, and only the first 26 campers to register can participate. For registration and additional information, call 281-583-7574 and press 2.
