(on reference recording 2:05 - 2:32)
If this isn't Love, there's no Glocca Morra
If this isn't Love, I'm Zsa Zsa Gaborra
If this is a dream, and if I should wake up
Will you hear a hiss, will my face be red if this isn't love

If this isn't love, the whole world is crazy
If this isn't love, I'm daft as a daisy
With moons all around and cows jumping over
There's something amiss, and I'll eat my hat if this isn't love
Be prepared to dance and read from the show.
PLEASE NOTE: the CCYT Competition Team will partner with the CCYT Advisory Board to fundraise for the trip. This year, there will be two fundraisers only, a summer cash-raffle and a spaghetti dinner during the performance weekend of Junie B. Jones in September. Each student and chaperone must participate fully in both fundraising activities and will be financially responsible for any portion of their trip that is not procured by fundraising, potentially up to $575/per actor.
