THEATER CAMP Opening at the Cinema Art Theater in Lewes
Opening August 25, the Rehoboth Beach Film Society’s Cinema Art Theater presents Theater Camp, a charming new original comedy about a musical theater group and the high emotional stakes of being a theater kid.
Tony Award winner Ben Platt and Molly Gordon star as Amos and Rebecca-Diane -- lifelong best friends and drama instructors at a rundown camp in upstate New York. When clueless tech-bro Troy (Jimmy Tatro) arrives to run the property (into the ground), Amos, Rebecca-Diane and production manager Glenn (Noah Galvin) band together with the staff and students to stage a masterpiece, and keep their beloved summer camp afloat. [2023, US, 94 min, Rating: PG-13]
Thelma Adams of AARP Movies for Grownups writes, “For theater nerds, and the ambitious young thespians they foster, this Sundance gem is likely to be the summer’s funniest feel-good film.”
Screening times are 7 pm on Fri (Aug 25) and 1 pm on Sun (Aug 27). Admission is $9 for members, $11.50 for general audiences and $5 for students (student tickets available only at the theater box office). Purchase advance tickets online at www.rehobothfilm.com or at the Cinema Art Theater box office in Lewes.
