John Wetenhall:
One of the wonderful things about this show is we're really trying to...

John Wetenhall:
trying to include a wide variety, from dance to drama to

John Wetenhall:
music, singing and everything.

John Wetenhall:
And so, Princeton really does a great job of nurturing that.

John Wetenhall:
And I think that this show is a perfect example of it.

Triangle Club performers:
When the weather gets too chilly for Bermuda shorts,

Triangle Club performers:
take those red flannel longings off the hook.

Triangle Club performers:
Just be sure that that trap has a button-down flap.

Triangle Club performers:
Ya gotta have that Ivy League look.

Jess Turner:
There are so many good musicians who just want

Jess Turner:
to play around campus. And that's a really

Jess Turner:
energizing feel. It's a very free, encouraging

Jess Turner:
environment here at Princeton.

[singing]

Shere Khan singers:
One thing I can tell you is you've got to be free.

Shere Khan singers:
Come together right now, over me.

[singing]

Julia Blount:
When I came to Princeton, I had done some theater in high

Julia Blount:
school, but wasn't really planning on doing

Julia Blount:
any in college. But I came across some really

Julia Blount:
great people in the community here, who really encouraged me

Julia Blount:
to audition and do more shows.

Julia Blount:
And I've made some really great friends doing that.

Actor:
Lucy, tell Mrs. Hanes I must talk to her

Actor:
alone before supper.

Actor:
Oh, Peggy, how are you my child?

Actor:
All right, Countess Delage.

Actor:
I've been galloping madly over the desert all day.

Student:
There's so many different forms of dance that I was never exposed to before.

Student:
And there's always something that you can find that's interesting to you.

[music]

Louisa Ferguson:
This show is really great, because it incorporates all

Louisa Ferguson:
of Princeton's performing arts groups, from Indian dance, to

Louisa Ferguson:
bands, to individual performers.

Phyllis Heitjan:
Someday I'll wish upon a star and wake up where the

Phyllis Heitjan:
clouds are far behind me.

Phyllis Heitjan:
Where troubles melt like lemon drops away above

Phyllis Heitjan:
the chimney tops.

Chiraag Galaiya:
If you're thinking about the arts at all, just go for it.

Chiraag Galaiya:
Don't be afraid or anything because you'll find something,

Chiraag Galaiya:
somewhere that you'll belong, and you'll probably end up having a great time.

Shere Khan singers:
And in the end, the love you take is equal to the

Shere Khan singers:
love you make.

[applause]
