MP3's, SCRIPT, AND SHEET MUSIC
FOR SPRING 2016 THEATER CAMP PRODUCTION
THE PRINCESS AND THE PAUPER
You can download the script as a pdf by clicking on the red text. Princess and the Pauper
We ask all campers to try to have the songs they will be singing in the play memorized by the week of May 16th. While everyone learns differently, we recommend that they hear the songs once a day ~4-5 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.
These are downloadable as mp3's. We have CD's of these songs available by request. You can also listen to these songs here
