Searchlight Pictures has dropped a new trailer for a highly anticipated mockumentary hit from Sundance 2023, “Theater Camp” which sold earlier this year to Searchlight for $8 million.
Directed by Nick Lieberman and Molly Gordon, “Theater Camp” transports us to AdirondACTS, the titular rundown camp located in upstate New York.
The mockumentary features lifelong best friends, and drama instructors Amos (Ben Platt) and Rebecca-Diane (Molly Gordon) attempt to prepare the next generation of triple threats for a lifetime on the stage. However, when clueless tech bro Troy (Jimmy Tatro) takes charge of the property, it’s up to Amos, Rebecca-Diane, and their fellow staff members (Noah Galvin, Ayo Edebiri, Owen Thiele, and Nathan Lee Graham) have three weeks to stage a masterpiece to keep their beloved summer camp afloat.
The film also stars Patti Harrison, Nathan Lee Graham, Ayo Edebiri, Owen Thiele, Caroline Aaron, and Amy Sedaris.
It won the U.S. Dramatic Special Jury Award for its ensemble at Sundance and also screened at the 2023 SWSW as part of its official selection.
Anyone who spent any part of their life as a theater kid, loving musicals or plays, I’m pretty sure you get a kick out of this film.
“Theater Camp” will be released in theaters on July 14th.
