Monday of Week Three began with a refocus on the campers as respectful team players and on the work needed to bring together a successful production. Today we met our designers for Bye Bye Birdie: Riley and Daniel.
The day started right off by breaking into groups with Rick teaching Large Group music #'s while Connie worked choreography to Lot of Livin' to Do and Brian ran staging in the big theater while the MacAfee family worked with Dana in the smaller theatre. After lunch Brian ran some theater exercises followed by technique workshops on Voice, projection, and spacial awareness with Dana and other games which introduced Daniel and Riley to the camp.
As promised here are the tongue twisters from today's workshop:

Betty Botter bought some butter."But," she said "this butter's bitter.If I put it in my batter, it will make my batter bitter."So, she bought some better butter (better than the bitter butter) and made her bitter batter better.

The big black bug bit the big black bear and the big black bear bled blue black blood.
