Searchlight Pictures acquired Theater Camp, Molly Gordon and Nick Lieberman’s feature directorial debut, that premiered at 2023 Sundance Film Festival. The mockumentary stars comedic ensemble Gordon (Shiva Baby, Booksmart), Ben Platt (Pitch Perfect), Noah Galvin (Booksmart), Jimmy Tatro (“American Vandal”), Patti Harrison (Together Together), and Ayo Edebiri (“The Bear”).
Theater Camp follows 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. The cast is rounded out by Nathan Lee Graham, Owen Thiele, Alan Kim, Alexander Bello, Bailee Bonick, Kyndra Sanchez, Donovan Colan, Vivienne Sachs, Quinn Titcomb, with Caroline Aaron and Amy Sedaris.
“We could not possibly imagine a better home for Theater Camp than Searchlight Pictures! It is an absolute dream to become a part of their incredible and rich history that includes so many of our favorite films,” said Gordon and Lieberman. “This movie is about the joy of bringing people together in a room, and for Searchlight to see the importance of sharing it in theaters means so much to us. We are beyond grateful and thrilled.”
