But it is veteran actor Brandt’s earnest naturalness and exceptionally strong singing voice that gives this production what gravity it has. He and O’Keefe generate at least some semblance of romantic sparks between them, and their duets of Berlin classics like “Count Your Blessings Instead of Sheep,” “Love You Didn’t Do Right by Me” and “How Deep is the Ocean” are definite highlights. Choreographer Gennine Harrington puts her hard-working, small ensemble through some intricate dance moves, with mostly favorable results. Perhaps because it was the first production number in the show, “Happy Holidays” seemed relatively benign, but Brandt and the chorus let loose on “Blue Skies” to end Act 1 on a high note. Ambler and Farbstein are excellent when they tickle the ivories (piano keys) and then the chorus comes in for “I Love a Piano.” The entire company sends theatergoers off in a holiday mood when they join the aforementioned “White Christmas” sing-a-long and, almost as an afterthought, they cozy up in twosomes for “I’ve Got My Love to Keep Me Warm.”.
Tears are sure to flow when the displaced Berkeley campers sing the campfire song they’ve been singing for generations: “There’s no place like Camp Tuolumne, there’s no spot that I would rather be.”, But the show must go on, says Gelfand, who not only has been a Berkeley camper for nearly three decades, but has 2" ballet merit badge, patch! any color combo! custom made! written and produced the staff musical that’s performed each Saturday night, This year, it will be a parody of “The Wizard of Oz” called “The Wizard of Echo Lake.” In it, Dorothy is sad because she doesn’t have a camp to go to, She meets up with a dishwasher, a cowardly maintenance guy and a rec leader who sings “If I only had a camp.”..
