Theater Camp, which stars Ben Platt, Molly Gordon, and Noah Galvin, is set to release in theaters on July 14th of this year.
The movie follows “the eccentric staff of a rundown theater camp in upstate New York as they band together following its founder’s fall into a coma right before the start of summer session, joining forces with her bro-y son to keep it afloat.”
In the film, Platt plays “the narcissistic but loveable theater connoisseur Amos” while Galvin is “the overworked stagehand Glenn.”
Theater Camp is based on a 2020 short film of the same name and is a long-gestating passion project for Platt and Galvin, who co-wrote the script, and Gordon and Nick Lieberman, who co-directed the film. Galvin, Platt, Gordon, Lieberman, and Mark Sonnenblick also wrote original music for the film.
“Our focus was the collaboration of the four of us,” Platt said of working with his fiance Galvin on the film. “Molly and Nick are our co-directors, our closest friends, and we all wrote and produced it together. Getting to be part of a larger group took a little pressure off of this being our first major collaboration.”
The movie also stars Amy Sedaris, Patti Harrison, Owen Thiele, Nathan Lee Graham, Caroline Aaron, Jimmy Tatro, and The Bear star Ayo Edebiri. It won the U.S. Dramatic Special Jury Award for Ensemble at Sundance.
