High School Musical Jr. Day 3!
The wildcats are having such a great time today at CCC’s third camp this summer, High School Musical Jr.! We are singing, dancing, playing, laughing, and putting our show together. Each day is always filled with new and exciting chances to meet other cast members and to have a good time. Whether it is during games, art, dance, or vocals, each camper has the opportunity to build friendships that will last a lifetime.
We know for a fact that the friendships that are made here last a lifetime because our staff is mostly made up of a tight-knit group of CCC alumni! Ryan Jewell, Erin Murray, Grace Grassi, Melissa Goldhorn, Kristina Goldhorn, Jacob Babcock, Elijah Babcock, Casey McCullough, and Sean Mack have all gone through our program. Ryan Jewell, who teaches the blocking to the actors, said that it is great to work on staff because watching the generations of CCC grow up is so rewarding!
Our camp day was busy, of course. The campers went to each class and continued to put our show together. Although it is only day three, our show is already coming together very nicely and efficiently. The campers learned new choreography to “Breaking Free” and new vocals to “We’re All in This Together” and “Stick to the Status Quo.” Miss Grace led the children in an art project, in which they painted crosses. Faith is at the center of all we do here at CCC. It is so great to be able to tie it into each class.
Being a Catholic theatre program, we are very thankful for our right to openly express our faith here in the United States. But, we also know that this freedom does not come free. Today, Mr. Gavin led the campers in a service project, in which we made thank you cards for first responders, new military recruits, veterans, and deployed soldiers. We are sending out our cards through a program called Operation Gratitude. We are so thankful for those who put their lives on the line for us every day. Let us always remember to pray for these people and their families.
Today’s theme was Disney Day! Our campers arrived to CCC sporting their very best Disney apparel. Disney music played throughout the arrival in the morning and at lunch today. We really do love Disney here at CCC. In fact, we’ve done all Disney shows this summer. Aristocats Kids, Aladdin Kids, and High School Musical Jr. are all stage adaptations of the Disney classics we know and love. Join us for yet another Disney show in the fall, when we perform Frozen Jr.!
Campers of the Day!
We are counting down the days until our performances of High School Musical Jr.! Be sure to buy your tickets. Our shows are on August 16th at 2pm and 7pm. We are so excited to see you all there!
