One ticket to see Gigantic, starting from $55
Camp can be a formative experience for a young person, but what about when there’s no s’mores? A stint at Southern Pennsylvania’s #3 weight-loss camp isn’t Robert’s dream summer vacation, but as he and the rest of the young campers find out, even the most trying experience can have a silver lining. Together they face down some of the roughest stuff that adolescence has to offer, find time for a make-out session or two, and seek out the most valuable item of Camp Overton contraband: that last Butterfinger.
Created by Randy Clair and Tim Drucker, with music by Matthew roi Berger and direction by Bat Boy’s Scott Schwartz, Gigantic tackles familiar themes with wit, charm, and more than a few rousing choruses. The pop-rock score helps things bop along at a steady pace, while the coming-of-age story gives audience members a flash to their misspent (or perhaps too well-spent) youths.
Praise for Gigantic
The New York Times calls the cast, “…rebellious and affirming,” and the show’s message as, “…defiantly feel-good.”
Variety states the direction is, “…quick and clever.”
