Broadway Color Games 2017

Picture this – the rain clears up after a brief afternoon shower and we finish evening flag, music is blasting out of the speakers outside of the Dining Hall, and up drives a white limousine. A red carpet rolls out, colored smoke bombs go off, and out of the limo runs our captains and lieutenants. One by one – four songs are played…

And hence begins Broadway Color Games 2017!

It was an evening of Broadway tunes. For every meal of Color Games, there is a theme. For tonight’s dinner, we ate with mini cocktail forks (AKA tuning fork dinner) – and check out our menu below. Campers and staff sang and danced their way through dinner as we listened to Broadway tunes.

After dinner, we had team meetings and then we gathered in the theater for a Lip Sync Battle. Campers from each team were called down to stage and given a Broadway song to lip sync to. They had 30 seconds to prepare and then they lip synced to the song – as everyone in the audience, of course, sang along too. Teams were graded on creativity, use of props, teamwork and lip sync accuracy. It was an amazing evening!

In the spirit of Broadway – some song lyrics to think about (and sing along to) this evening:

Forget regret, or life is yours to miss. No other path, no other way, no day but today.
-Rent

 I’ve heard it said that people come into our lives for a reason,
bringing something we must learn and we are led to those who help us most to grow.

-Wicked

Being true to yourself never goes out of style.
-Legally Blonde

You can change the world if you change your mind.
-Kinky Boots

I am not throwing away my shot.
-Hamilton

Today is going to be a good day, and here’s why.
Because today at least, you’re you and that’s enough.
-Dear Evan Hanson

I wonder what will be in store for tomorrow…
