This hilarious comedy  explores a group of theatre nerds who gather at summer camp to celebrate their love of drama, music and dance. The hilarious dialog and impassioned performances are packed with gags that will keep everyone laughing whether they’re  theatre lovers or those who just enjoy a good laugh.
Theater Camp
  wields a close-cutting understanding of life waiting in the wings, manning the spotlight, or desperately trying to make your own ends as you teach others to make theirs, and presents all the chaos and comfort of the thespian environment as both a warm hug and a heavy nudging of the ribs for those who have experienced it firsthand.
With enough conviction, you can get an audience to vibe with just about anything including cannibalistic serial killers living on Fleet Street, politicians having rap battles in parliament and sewer-dwelling men in masks, all presented through song because that is clearly how actual conversations are carried out isn’t it?!

The theatre can be quite a magical place. But there is no denying that it can get ridiculous. Add the prospect of children acting out these kinds of stories, not to mention the adults teaching them how to, and you have the bedrock for what is likely to be one of the best comedies of 2023.
