James and the Giant Peach Opens Tonight
Tonight is the night! After months of anticipation, and 2 ½ weeks of practice on the part of our campers, the Eagle’s Nest Camp musical opens tonight, and I can’t wait to see it! There are so many reason that I love the camp musical (one of them being that I directed many Eagle’s Nest musicals in my early years at camp) but I think that the number 1 reason that I love the musical is that it brings out the best in all of the Eagle’s Nesters. I love watching the campers gather their courage as they step onto stage, and I find that their smiles and laughter bring an even bigger smile to my face. I also find my heart warmed by the tremendous support of the audience, their camp friends and counselors.
Last night, the cast of James and the Giant Peach gave us a musical preview after dinner in the Dining Hall. I was blown away by their enthusiasm and talent! I know that we’re all in for a treat tonight. And I’m so pleased that the performers will go to bed filled with pride and boosted confidence.
