The Vineyard Theatre presents a coming-of-age musical comedy about a group of outcast teens who have been sent to a weight-loss camp in Pennsylvania. More…
Camp Overton is the number three weight-loss camp in Southern Pennsylvania, and Robert is attending, whether he wants to or not. Getting shipped off to weight-loss camp is hardly Robert’s idea of the perfect summer, but even he isn’t prepared for what can be lost or gained. Robert and his fellow campers tackle the growing pains of adolescence as this bunch of misfit teens is forced to find solace in one another. Their search for acceptance, a hot make-out session, and the last contraband Butterfinger is sure to delight audiences of all weight classes.
See it if you're like the guy next to me who somehow finds lame jokes hysterical. You're into "so bad it's good" (Though this doesn't quite get there)
Don't see it if your taste level is higher than zero and you don't like seeing good performers wasted.
See it if want to spend time thinking if you're staying for the 2nd act (which was actually better). Fresh topic but very weak book/dialogue. Music?
Don't see it if you like a good score. Lot's of talent here, but material doesn't elevate.
See it if you like over the top comedy and if you think there must always be a romance plot line.
Don't see it if you were hoping that the show would tackle issues of body image and fatphobia in a tasteful way.
