News   Lisa Loeb Will Return to Summer Camp With New York Premiere of New Musical Camp Kappawanna
 
Camp Kappawanna, a new family musical inspired by memories of summer camp, will receive its New York premiere at the Atlantic Theater Company.

The musical features music and lyrics by Grammy Award-nominated singer/songwriter Lisa Loeb, Michelle Lewis and Dan Petty.

Camp Kappawanna will begin performances March 21, 2015, and continue through April 12.  Atlantic Acting School artistic director Alison Beatty will direct.

"Following the misadventures of 12-year old Jennifer Jenkins, an awkward and adorable 12-year-old kid, Camp Kappawanna portrays the fear and excitement of leaving home for the first time," press notes state. "This lighthearted musical, inspired by Lisa Loeb’s own nostalgic summer camp memories, has an acoustic sound that will take you back to nights spent around the camp fire."

Camp Kappawanna will feature choreography by MK Lawson. Nate Weida will provide musical direction.

Loeb launched The Camp Lisa Foundation to help raise funds to send kids to camp in 2008. She collaborated with Kay Hanley, Jill Sobule, Nina Gordon and Steve Martin to record the companion CD "Camp Lisa." The musical will play every Saturday and Sunday at 10:30 AM, with two weekday performances April 8 and April 10 at 10:30 AM.

The Linda Gross Theater is located at 336 West 20 Street. Visit atlantictheater.org for more information.
