T’was The Night Before Summer Stage
T’was the night before Summer Stage, and all through the theatre
Everything was up and running, yes even the heaters
The audition cards were piled on the shelves with care
In knowing creative staff’s and children would soon be there
The children were nestled all snug in the beds
With magical Summer Stage stuck in their heads
And Mama with her band-aids and cookies galore
Prepared for the onslaught of visitors at her door
Costumers sat designing clothes and the hair
While everyone sat trying to quickly prepare
Papers left and right, Schedules being made
It seemed as those chaos would never truly fade
The unit set rose right out of the floor
With levels and platforms and lots of trap doors
The lighting was set and the theatre was dark
And we all sat prepared for that summer stage spark
Who knew what this year of magic could hold
With thousands of tickets already sold
Yet everyone knew the audiences would cheer
After remembering Summer Stage’s 36th year
Dora and Tom Sawyer will kick off our year!
And then before you know it, a cat will be here
An orphan and pirates then come quick soon!
A Disney Spectacular? I hope theres balloons!
Back in time to the 60’s we go
With Tracy Turnblad and all her negroes
Dance Troupe, Cabaret and One Acts galore!
It seems there is so much magic in store!
DUN! Goes the song and here we go again
Summer Stage my friends is about to begin
Are you ready to see something amazing? Don’t leave!
You haven’t seen any of the magic of up our sleeve
So here we go again as summer 37 is here!
I know you’re excited! Let me hear your loud cheer!
And we’ll fill the world with love our whole life through
Cause Summer Stage’s 37th Season begins with YOU!
