A great summer show featuring local composer Joan McFarland’s exciting, uplifting music!
What better way to spend the summer than performing in a show about kids at a summer camp. The play runs the gamut from wacky comedy (a neurotic, germ-phobic mayor and her/his eccentric council-people) to teen-age and pre-teen angst over broken friendships and unsettling life changes. Parts are nicely divided between the different age-groups making this a text-book ensemble show with good parts for all.
