NLOKids Drama Camp

June 17, 2024 - July 13, 2024

2010 was the year of a special project of NLOC. NLOKids was introduced for kids of Northern Light Opera Company’s cast and crew who often were present at NLOC’s rehearsals. They created an original musical which they performed for families and friends. In 2016, NLOKids was expanded and became a collaborative Drama Camp for kids ages 8-13 from the Pine community as well as Park Rapids. Bus transportation and lunches are provided. Guided by professionals, kids write a story, create the music, make costumes, build sets and present an original musical for parents and friends at both the Pine Point Community Center and Park Rapids Armory. 2024’s dates are June 17-July 13. Park Rapids Community Ed is a co-sponsor. This program has been recognized by the Guthrie Theater and the Minneapolis Star Tribune. This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota, through a grant from the Region 2 Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
