Suggested for 10-15 year olds
Pacific Opera Victoria and Kaleidoscope Theatre for Young People invite you to join us for an exciting performance creation camp that explores the world of opera, music, and movement. You will work with a team of professional artists to create your very own original theatrical piece inspired by a story. This camp is bursting with ways to express your creativity through singing, storytelling, acting and dancing as well as hands-on activities to help bring the show to life. The week will culminate in a sharing performance of your creation for family and friends.
