Olympus
Scripts, Mp3.s and Sheet music for Enrolled Families

This page has the script for our 2017 Olympus camps, mp3.s of both the songs and some of the spoken dialogue in the play, and sheet music for the songs. Please only use these if you are enrolled in our camps--if you are visiting the website and want to hear songs samples, you can access those by clicking here

The script for Olympus contained 3 versions of the show, shown by boldface.

  • In the Oregon camp we are doing the longest version of the script: all normal text and all boldfaced text.
  • The Vermont camp is doing a modified shortened version of the show, final pdf. below. Mp3.s / sheet music songs that are not in the Vermont production have *** by them below.  For enrolled Vermont families who received the full script in the mail, we have an email we can send that lists all the amendments / cuts / corrections to that script.

Mp3.s of the Olympus Songs / Which characters sing in the song

*** If a song has *** by it, it is not in the Vermont production (but is in the Oregon production)

Three different listings/codes for songs to tell whether they're part of the longest, medium, or shortest versions of Olympus

  • 7) The Me Inside         -- If a song has no marks by it, it is in all three versions of the show (longest, medium, and shortest)
  • 6) *** How I Still Love Him    -- Songs with stars by them are in the longest and medium version, but not the shortest
  • 4) --- Son Don't Fly So High  -- Songs with three hyphens are only in the longest version

Mp3.s of the dialogue / rhythm of certain scenes

Almost all of the spoken lines in Olympus are in verse form. While we don't want the characters to have a strict uniform delivery (think Dr. Seuss), there is a pattern to their lines. ~60% of the dialogue in the play is in the same rhythm and meter, but some characters have their own rhythm,

  • Hera, Hades, Poseidon, and Demeter, and Persephone have their own unique rhythm
  • Aphrodite is fluid throughout the play, but sometimes has a double-rhyme per line
  • Zeus and Aphrodite have a different joint rhythm in scene XII. Poseidon and Zeus mimic this in their brief argument later.
  • The Doofs and the Mother at the beginning and end of the play do not speak in any rhythm.


The first track gives an explanation of how to use these tracks and a bit more on the different rhythms. For the marked scenes, some are complete, some only have excerpts from those scenes, and a few have slightly different words within a line, as these recordings were from a previous version of Olympus.

As mentioned in the instruction track, these are meant as examples: we do NOT want students to try to exactly mimic the expression or inflection of these recordings. Instead, we want them to get a feel for the rhythm and meter then make the character their own.
