I sent out the Session 2 camper survey a few hours ago. (Didn’t get it? Let me know, I’ll send it again!) This time around, I am raffling off exclusive playhouse signs from the 2014 and 2015 holiday and actors’ Renaissance seasons.
I pull a name for every 10 survey responders who email me with the secret word revealed at the end of the survey. Winners get to pick their poster, and remain eligible to win again and again!
Congrats, winner! Email me to let me know which poster you’d like!
Our session has come to a close. Before that, however, we had our annual camp tradition of Sonnet Night! It’s Secret Santa, but with sonnets and dressing up as the sonnet’s subject on the last night of camp.
Here are just a few of the night’s priceless moments:
All campers gather ’round, dressed as their sonnet’s subject.
Silly campers are silly.
We start things off with Ellis reading his sonnet to Macbeth dramaturg Hugh.
Abe presents his sonnet to partner-in-crime Ellis.
Life imitates art: Beatrice (Grace) reads her sonnet for Benedick (Abe).
Grace listens to Jessica’s sonnet, attention rapt.
Alex does a sonnet thing. Jessica reacts accordingly.
Valerie reacts accordingly to Glenn wearing a dress.
Emma shares her sonnet.
But wait – there’s more!
Emma listens to a sonnet written by yours truly.
From one Madd(ie/y) to another!
Brigid reads her sonnet for Maddy.
Lia couldn’t be at Sonnet Night in person, but she made a recording of herself reading her sonnet for Brigid.
Adrienne records Madison’s sonnet for Lia.
Grace (the dramaturg) reads her sonnet for Jake.
Mimi reads aloud her sonnet for Spencer.
Sofia performs her sonnet for Cecilia; the audience laughs themselves to pieces.
Last night marked the last late-night dress rehearsal of camp. After optional attendance viewing of the ASC’s Twelfth Night, the rest of the campers, counselors, and guests alike (including director Emily’s parents!) awaited King John; soon, the cast took the stage and wowed everyone.
