Where We Belong (reprise)

Roger McCall
Many years ago, 10, to be exact
I dreamed of a camp where kids could come to learn to sing and act
No one thought it was possible, they laughed behind my back
But it wouldn’t be long we’d prove them wrong
We’re 10 years strong in fact

Once I made the decision to follow my ambition
And make a training ground for dance and song
There were hardships and obstructions
Those are part of all productions

Still the show must carry on!

Where We Belong (finale)

Campers & Staff
We’re here, we’re here
We’re finally here
The place where we can be ourselves at least for once a year
We’re here, we’re here

Camilla Swanson
I’m here, and I know you are here
Every time I sing I feel you near
Now I have my song to sing I’ll sing with all my heart
I will sing just like you–I will get the part

Roger McCall (three-part harmony)
Once I made the decision to follow my ambition
And make a training ground for dance and song
There were hardships and obstructions
Those are part of all productions

Still the show must carry on!

Campers & Staff (three-part harmony)
We’re here, we’re here
We’re finally here
The place where we can be ourselves at least for once a year
The place where we can dance and feel allowed to sing a song
Performing is our fantasy, we’re here where we belong!

Camilla Swanson (three-part harmony)
Now I have my song to sing I’ll sing with all my heart
I will sing just like you–I will get the part

The Show Must Carry On

Kid: … isn’t it wrong to sing and dance when someone just died?
Kids: Yeah.
Kids: Isn’t that illegal?
Kids: What about the sheriff?

Roger McCall (spoken)
Do you remember the first time you ever saw a musical play?
Do you remember the first time that you ever got swept away?
No matter what bad stuff happened that day, when that show was over, you probably felt OK
That’s why theatre has been around so long
That’s why we need musical songs

(sung)

Sing a song, sing a song when you’re in pain
Musicals help you feel high once again
Sing a song when things are wrong, don’t you fret
Melody’s the remedy to help you forget

From the ancient Greek stage to today’s modern age
Musicals mute out the wars that we wage
When they made gunpowder, we just sung louder
From Gilbert & Sullivan to Rodgers & Hammerstein
Show tunes have shown up to drown out the battle cries

And when the terrorists get suicidal, we’ll
Roger McCall and Staff
Be just fine ‘cause we have our own bible
We’ll dig up our archives and find a revival

Roger McCall
We’ll always need singing and dancing
And whether it’s Kander & Ebb or Andrew Lloyd Webber
These musical treasures will help us to weather
The horrors of war, the more that goes wrong
The more that we need for the show to carry on

Ladies and gentlemen, presenting tonight’s leading lady, Camilla Swanson!

(APPLAUSE AND CHEERING)

When the enemy’s on its way
Kids: The show must carry on!
When they yell, “Bombs away!”
Kids: The show must carry on!
We lose soldiers every day, what’s a camper from the play?
Kids: The show must carry on!

Kids & Staff
When we made the decision to follow our ambition
And come to Center Stage for dance and song
We knew there’d be obstructions
Those are part of all productions

Still the show must carry on!

When we made the decision to follow our ambition
We knew there’d be obstructions
Those are part of all productions

Still the show must carry on!

Metal Killer
Shut your fucking face
Your musicals are full of shit
Every single day
You people make me sick
You sound so lame
Stuck inside your stupid dream
You don’t know pain
Now I’m gonna make you scream!

You’re gonna fucking scream!

Metal Killer
Shut your fucking face
Kids: Sing a song
Your musicals are full of shit
Kids: Sing a song
Every single day
You people make me sick
Kids: And the show must carry on!
Shut your fucking face
Kids: Sing a song
Your musicals are full of shit
Kids: Sing a song
Every single day
You people make me sick

Metal Killer & all
Tonight!
Tonight!
Opening night
