Cimarron Opera Theatre Camp 2018

Cimarron Opera offers the opportunity for youth aged 9-18 to take part in this 3-week camp that provides vocal instruction, dance and acting basics, audition preparation, Gilbert and Sullivan history – plus a lot of friendship, teamwork and fun! The camp then concludes with fully staged performances of Gilbert and Sullivan's beloved Iolanthe for family and friends to enjoy.

Under the direction of Shawna Linck and music director Kevin Smith, the operetta for this summer will be Gilbert & Sullivan’s IolantheAs in the past, camp rehearsals will be held in parallel with the adult production’s evening rehearsals of the same operetta.
