Table 8 Presents World Premiere of SUMMER CAMP! THE MUSICAL, 8/10-26

Table 8 Productions presents the World Premiere of the raunchy, rockin' comedy Summer Camp! The Musical, with book by Troy Heard, music by Angela Chan, and lyrics by Heard and Chan. The run begins Friday, August 10, 2012, at The Onyx Theatre in Commercial Center and plays weekends through August 26. The production is directed by Heard with musical direction by Chan.

It's Summer 1982: Reagan's in the White House, the Russians are building the bomb, and rustic Camp Tigglebitties is a hormonal hotbed where ubernerds Nolan and Dwight vow to lose their virginity to the gorgeous Lacey St. Clair...at the possible expense of their friendship. Serious questions are raised: can Dwight enlist help from Obi-Wan? Who will win the Kotex 500? And what IS The Mook?

"Summer Camp! is a musical homage to the classic genre of the early 1980s cinema popularly known as the Teen Sex Comedy," says Heard, who was selected Best Director of 2011 by NPR's Desert Companion magazine. "I remember staying up late many Saturday nights to watch Porky's, Meatballs and Revenge of the Nerds on HBO. And like any red-blooded, prepubescent male I always thought there was way too much story between the shower scenes. This is my chance to fix that...while amping the awesomeness by adding musical numbers in different 80s rock-and-roll styles."

"We've also jumped on the audience interaction bandwagon with this one," Heard says. "There's a splash zone, of course, but since this is a sex comedy and not a horror spoof like Evil Dead, Summer Camp! is definitely adults only!"

Performances are Fridays through Sundays, August 10 - 26 at 8 pm. Tickets are $15.00 and are available at the door and on www.onyxtheatre.com. Performances of Summer Camp! The Musical will be at The Onyx Theatre, located at 953 E. Sahara Ave. #16 in Commercial Center, Las Vegas, NV.
