Did you know?
For the above reasons and so many other facts, figures, passions and experiences, I have chosen to share another blogem (Blog Poem). There is a pure nostalgia and emotion that drives deep within people when it comes to recalling experiences in camp and theater. The following is a celebration of both of these precious places as they collide into one beautiful entity: camp theater.
Ode to Camp Theater
That moment when...
This summer's musical is announced
You read the cast list
You get to play a role you never thought you would
You realize the 40 people you just met will become your closest friends at camp
You actually have something fun to do during "rainy day" activities
Sitting with your cast mates reminds you of sitting with your color war team
You and your cast laugh at an "inside" joke in front of other people, then you laugh again
You think the show will never come together
Final dress rehearsal speeches begin
The show comes together
You're about to go on
Holding for laughs brings a huge smile to your face
You're singing summer show tunes weeks after camp has ended
Blackout. Silence. Uproarious applause
