From Camper Jaylen Hall, 15 from Mesa
My experience at Camp Broadway has been amazing. I love the camp because the staff are always cool to be around, and there are always new, fun people to meet. I love the rehearsals that we have for the big show on Friday, and for the gypsy showcase. The thing I like most about the camp is performing on Friday. I think it is really fun because I get nervous and when I finish the show I love how I feel. The gypsy showcase is one of my favorite things to do because it’s like a chance for us to choose our plays and goof around with them. The plays that we got this year were The Lion King and Bye Bye Birdie. So basically what we do is mix them into one short two and a half minute long play. We can change the lyrics to the songs and act anything we want (as long as it goes with at least one of the stories). What we do is rehearse all week and perform that on Friday as well. Friday was also the day that my group and the Nederlanders performed My Fair Lady. And the Jujamcyns and Schubert’s performed Oliver. The shows are really fun to do, and the camp is just a blast. It’s an easy way for you to do something for the first week of summer. Every year I meet new people. And it seems to get more fun just because of my environment there. I love it! Jaylen Hall.
