Disney’s Searchlight Pictures has announced that it will be releasing “Theater Camp” in cinemas in the United States on July 14th 2023.
The films is based on the 2020 short of the same name, which stars longtime friends Molly Gordon, Noah Galvin and Ben Platt, who play the eccentric staff running a scrappy theater camp in upstate New York. After its indomitable and beloved founder falls into a coma, they must band together with her clueless “crypto-bro” son to keep the thespian paradise afloat.
Searchlight Pictures picked up the film at the Sundance Film Festival for around $8M with a theatrical guarantee. It’s been directed by Molly Gordon and Nick Lieberman, and they have also written the screenplay with Ben Platt, and Noah Galvin. The four also helped with creating the music for the film, along with Mark Sonnenblick.
It also stars Amy Sedaris, Alan S. Kim, Patti Harrison, Owen Thiele, Jimmy Tatro, Ayo Edebiri, Caroline Aaron, Nathan Lee Graham and more.
Picturestart and Topic Studios served as the film’s financiers. Erik Feig, Samie Kim Falvey and Julia Hammer produced for Picturestart, alongside Maria Zuckerman and Ryan Heller for Topic Studios, and Will Ferrell, Jessica Elbaum, Alex Brown and Mary Bundy for Gloria Sanchez Productions.
Expect to see “Theater Camp” released on Disney’s streaming services later this year, after its theatrical run.
