This Festival Director's pick from the Sundance Film Festival, a feel-good, life-affirming and joyful off-beat comedy celebrating anyone who doesn't fit in.
Theatre Camp is a mockumentary reminiscent of the films of Christopher Guest (Best In Show), following the trials and tribulations of an Upstate New York Theatre Camp attempting to create and stage a masterpiece, good enough to save the camp from imminent closure.
Tony Award winner Ben Platt and Molly Gordon star in the original comedy – 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, staging a masterpiece to keep their beloved summer camp afloat.
Theater Camp won a Special Jury Award at this year’s Sundance Film Festival and received critical acclaim at the SXSW Film Festival.

★★★★ 'Being a theater geek isn’t required to enjoy Theater Camp, but it certainly can’t hurt' IndieWire
