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.
