After our three week musical theatre camp in July, I thought we were pretty much done, but I got a call for another 2 week camp who needed a costume mistress and thought it would be a great idea to trade out for all 5 of my kids to attend! OK, sounds good! It gets even better! For their production of Disney's "Beauty and the Beast", they cast Kamberlynne as "Belle", Christian as "Gaston", and Jonah as "Lumiere"! Indy covered the ensemble beautifully with many of his own solos and lines! Even Rebekah got to star in a little kid show (I'll post that next!) The show turned out marvelously, the kids did great, and Catherine lived through the costuming (not my favorite job) and packing all the lunches (another good reason to homeschool....I REALLY don't like packing lunches)! But the big hero is Briella, who came along day in and day out, and learned just about all the songs and lines (in Briella talk!), and was the show mascot!
Here are a few videos of the musical numbers from a dress rehearsal! Enjoy! (For those of you wanting a quick peak at all the kids, check out the "Belle" and "Be Our Guest" numbers...For you die hard fans....you'll love them all!)
Here is the opener "Belle". Kamberlynne is easy to spot, look to her right and there is Indy singing his heart out. At about 3 minutes or so in, Christian...I mean "Gaston" makes his entrance! One of my favorite parts of the show!
Next is "Home", one of Kamberlynne's best vocals. She has taken her father's place as the Beast's prisoner, and is wondering if she'll ever find "home" again.
"Gaston" has alot of Christian, and he's pretty cute! Watch for Indy, too!
"Be our Guest" showcases Jonah, and he really loved his character...you can tell he had a great time! And Indy has transformed into a spoon, I think....
"Human Again" wasn't in the original Disney release, but added in the later release after it did well on Broadway. It is a cute number with all the enchanted characters, and Jonah starts it off!
I thought I had the finale...sorry! But what do you think....??? The cast was one of the youngest I've worked with, and putting together a show in 2 weeks is crazy, but we all enjoyed it! Thanks to Grandma, Pop, Aunt Amber, Connor, and our Homeschool Friends the Klopcic Family for coming to see our performance! One good thing about camp being over....NO MORE PACKING THOSE DARN LUNCHES!!!!!
