Theatre Camp Resources

Hello parents and campers!

 

We are excited for our summer camp productions and are looking forward to working with all of our campers to put on some fantastic shows!!!

In the past, our campers have received the audition materials the first day of camp and auditioned that day. we understand this has caused a little anxiety as our campers had not had a chance to feel comfortable with the audition materials. This year, we wanted to change that.

Auditions will still be held on the first day of camp. Audition materials will be listed below. Please take your time to look over the information provided, read all of the information and practice as much as possible. There will not be time to practice on your own the first day of camp. We will go over some of the material, like teaching the song and the dance portion (when applicable), however, campers will not have a chance to review on their own like we have in the past. We are giving our campers ample time to review and practice for their audition.

We are always available to help answer any questions and provide any assistance should you need it. Please do not hesitate to contact:

 Audition Song: I Just Can’t Wait to Be King

Lyrics:

Note: Sing only Young Simba, Young Nala’s vocal lines & the group vocals. Do not worry about Zazu’s spoken lines in the song. Only learm the lines listed below.

I’m gonna be a mighty king, so enemies beware!

[spoken] Well I’ve never seen a king of beasts 
With quite so little hair

I’m gonna be the mane event,
Like no king was before!
I’m brushing up on looking down,
I’m working on my ROAR!

[spoken] Thus far, a rather uninspiring thing

Oh, I just can’t wait to be king!

[spoken] You’ve rather a long way to go, young master, if you think–

No one saying do this! [spoken] Now when I said that —
No one saying be there! [spoken] What I meant was —
No one saying stop that! [spoken] What you don’t realize — 
No one saying see here! [spoken] Now see here!
Free to run around all day! [spoken] That’s definitely out!

Free to do it all my way

*MUSIC BREAK*

Everybody look left!

Everybody look right!

Everywhere you look I’m…
Standing in the spotlight

[spoken] Not yet!

Let every creature go for broke and sing!
Let’s hear it in the herd and on the wing!
It’s gonna be King Simba’s finest fling!

Oh, I just can’t wait to be king!

Oh, he just can’t wait to be king!

Oh, I just can’t wait…

Just can’t wait…

To be king!
