A great opportunity for young singers to make MAGICAL MUSIC this Summer! 

Rosehill’s Summer Sing! returns for another year in partnership with  Mahogany Opera.

From Monday 29 July to Friday 2 August Rosehill Theatre will be presenting their Summer Sing – a week of activities for children aged 7-11 years old to explore their creativity and performance skills. Delivered in partnership with Mahogany Opera, as part of our Snappy Opera Festival, children will explore Snappy Opera – The Magical Music Tree – and work with professional artists to explore singing, drama, design. The children will then have the chance to perform to an audience of family and friends at the end of the week.

Rosehill Theatre and Mahogany Opera have been working in partnership since 2014 to bring opera for young audiences to West Cumbria, as well as engaging young people in the creative process – together they have worked with 9 primary schools and 614 school children on 4 projects where the participants have performed to more than 1500 audience members.


Anne Timpson, Rosehill’s Taking Part programme manager, said: “Having seen the benefits of participating in a Snappy Opera first hand in primary schools, we were really keen to be able to offer this outside of term time to more children and our Summer Sing! seemed the perfect opportunity to do this. It's a great way for children to explore their passion for singing, increase their confidence and make new friends! We are delighted to be a part of Mahogany Opera’s Snappy Opera festival, extending our partnership with them.”

The course runs at Rosehill Theatre, Whitehaven, from Monday 29 July until Friday 2 August, 9.30am to 4pm, and costs £50 (£10 discount for siblings). Visit the Rosehill Theatre website for more details.
