Rejoice! Dear Evan Hansen stars (and fiancés) Ben Platt and Noah Galvin's film Theater Camp is coming to theatres across the United States after previously premiering at the Sundance Film Festival. Check out the trailer for the film above!
Written by Platt, Galvin, Molly Gordon, and Nick Lieberman, Theater Camp is inspired by their 2020 short film of the same name. It follows the eccentric staff of a rundown theatre camp in upstate New York as they come together with a less-than-theatrically-inclined member of the camp family to keep the program going following the sudden absence of the beloved founder.
Platt, Gordon, and Galvin star in the project, alongside Amy Sedaris, Alan S. Kim, Patti Harrison, Owen Thiele, Jimmy Tatro, Ayo Edebiri, Caroline Aaron, and Nathan Lee Graham. The project is the directorial debut of Gordon and Lieberman.
Erik Feig, Samie Kim Falvey, and Julia Hammer produced the project for Picturestart, in partnership with Maria Zuckerman and Ryan Heller for Topic Studios. Wider release is presented by Searchlight Pictures. Will Ferrell, Jessica Elbaum, Alex Brown, and Mary Bundy for Gloria Sanchez Productions are also a part of the production team.
The film was previously among the titles that were available for at-home Sundance streaming. In-person cinema screenings will begin July 14; check local listings for locations and times.
