The Gilbert & Sullivan Society Summer Camp

The Gilbert & Sullivan Society of Bermuda aims to inspire the next generation of performers to explore their talent and craft through an exciting and entertaining Summer Camp. The camp offers kids the opportunity to work with trained performers to learn numerous art-forms such as; comedy, physical theatre, improv, and many other skills they need to become better performers. Blending fun with education, every activity is designed to teach the kids useful tools for both on, and off, the stage.

We are delighted to see so many of our past campers shine in the annual Gilbert & Sullivan Society shows year after year, with a number of our former campers being cast in featured roles in “THE WIZARD OF OZ” (2017), and “ANNIE” (2018).
