Boy Who Kept A Secret


Show SONGS as mp3's

We ask all campers to come to camp having memorized the songs they will be singing in the play, so that we can use our two weeks of theater camp for fun theater games and focussed rehearsals. While everyone learns differently, we recommend that they hear the songs once a day ~5 days a week until they know them--though if they want to hear them more, that is wonderful. You may be surprised at how quickly they pick them up; others may take a fair amount of work. 

If there is a conflict in language between the sound recording and the script, the script is correct 95% of the time

You can also listen to these song on our website here

These are downloadable as mp3's.  We are also open to mailing you a physical copy of the songs on CD.
