‘Theater Camp’ trailer is a loving attack on theater kids everywhere

Directed by Nick Lieberman and Molly Gordon, Theater Camp transports us to AdirondACTS, the titular rundown camp located in upstate New York. There, drama instructors Amos (Ben Platt) and Rebecca-Diane (Gordon) attempt to prepare the next generation of triple threats for a lifetime on the stage (and for the disappointment that comes with not “making it”). 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 musical masterpiece and save AdirondACTS from failure.
