Camp Broadway is the experience of a lifetime. You learn so much in such a short time!
Day one is very simple:
We met the instructors and fellow campers.
We started to learn the songs you will perform on Friday and assigned dance steps.
We started to work in small groups on your Gypsy Showcase which is when campers get a chance to create their own stories by “mashing up” two musicals (one classic and one modern show) chosen at random. The evening of day three is when we watched the performance of Million Dollar Quartet, which had us dancing in our seats.
We put the dancing and signing together and lines are assigned. Lunch was with the Million Dollar Quartet cast and crew. We asked them questions, took photos with them and got their autographs. It was great to meet them after watching the show the night before. After lunch we got to tour the different parts of Gammage including the backstage area.
The last day was very exciting! The show was rehearsed with all the parts put together on the big stage. Late in the afternoon the families arrived for the performance, and we performed our pieces for them. This gives the campers the experience of performing in front of an audience, and teaches us that no matters what happens the show must go on. As someone who wants to have a career on stage I have learned so many useful things that will take me far and met some lasting friends
