Hilarious, Resonant, Relevant, Great singing, Underrated

See it if you'd enjoy a fresh, funny musical gem performed with great pipes & great heart. The songs immediately move you, amuse you & stay with you.

Don't see it if you're offended by an LGBT love story. Actually, in that case you should definitely see it. Read more

Funny, Entertaining, Fluffy, Hilarious, Insipid

See it if You like camp and campiness. It's like a satire, trying to be serous. LGBT. Funny songs. Was better when I saw it years ago. This concert

Don't see it if Format, took away from the theatrics, but, overall enjoyable. Storyline needs to be tightened...sensitive about religion. . Would see again.

Ambitious, Edgy, Bold, Too short, In progress

See it if This show still needs work. It's too short and not fully developed. Needs great singers to impress, which is not the case during NYMF.

Don't see it if you are offended by teenage sex themes. Bold and inventive, but needs lots of work to be done. Read more

Disappointing, Indulgent, Cliched

See it if you like shows that go for shock value and push their morals on you

Don't see it if you aren't super into EDM or don't want indulgent teenage sex themes pushed in your face

Great singing, Great acting, Funny, Relevant, Resonant

See it if You like non-traditional music and like seeing great performances in a work in progress & if you like subverting antiquated religious tropes

Don't see it if you don't like lgbtq+ themes and think everyone should wait for marriage. Also the EDMxMT music was cool, but overloaded the sound system

Theater Pizzazz
August 5th, 2017

"The cast is seriously killer...Director Walker fiercely steers the piece’s main themes of LGBT identity and religion while tackling other important subjects like eating disorders and teen suicide...Although the premise of 'Camp Wanatachi' is quite apropos to our times, I would have liked to see the envelope pushed a little further. I look forward to seeing an incarnation of this piece in an actual theater as well, as the camp vibes didn’t particularly suit the swankiness of the venue to me."

“'Wanatachi' is fun to watch and has performances that will send chills down your spine...Although the vocals are often drowned out by a regrettable echo-like microphone effect, you get the idea that these are well-trained voices. Even though 'Wanatachi' is not a fully staged musical, the performers...fill the intimate setting with music and dance and do a fine job telling the story of a budding romance set to a catchy electronic-pop score. It will make you feel like a kid at summer camp.”
