"This Sundance gem is likely to be the summer’s funniest feel-good film."
— Thelma Adams, AARP Movies for Grownups
"Funny and smart and sweet stuff, a crowdpleaser for the misfit in all of us."
— Kate Erbland, IndieWire
"Molly Gordon and Nick Lieberman direct this hilarious indie film [with a] delightful and eclectic cast."
— Josh Flanders, Chicago Reader
"A fine-cut comedic gem engineered with a distinct sensibility and the chops to become a beloved camp classic."
— Katie Walsh, Tribune News Service
"The film deftly captures the high emotional stakes of being a theater kid, whether you’re still a child or a full-grown adult."
— Brianna Wellen, Chicago Reader
"The message of Theater Camp is clear: Its eccentric world of show tunes and show people is big enough (and funny enough) for everyone."
— Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
"An endearing look at creativity as well as a surprisingly poignant reminder that most artists succeed not through individual genius, but by being part of a community."
— Shirley Li, The Atlantic
"This celebration of dorks, divas, and devotion to one’s art would feel sweet at any time, but as actors join writers on the picket line, it ends up being a little spicy as well."
— Alison Willmore, New York Magazine/Vulture
"It knows how to put on a show. With songs written by the screenwriters and Mark Sonnenblick, Theater Camp in the end hits just the right note between satire and sincere."
— Jake Coyle, Associated Press
"A film very much made — and will be most appreciated — by people who understand these bizarre, “Brigadoon”-like summer camps where artsy kids are both open-hearted and openly ruthless."
— Johnny Oleksinski, New York Post
"There’s so much heart throughout Theater Camp — it also doesn’t overstay its welcome, landing at a tight 94 minutes packed to the minute with visual gags and quick comments you don’t want to miss."
— Mary Siroky, Consequence
"The humor in this quick-witted crowd-pleaser, which is both mischievously critical and adoring of the microcosm it depicts, derives almost entirely from the self-seriousness that everyone involved displays for their chosen passion."
— Carlos Aguilar, TheWrap
"The sense of joy that emanates from nearly every frame of Theater Camp, a film that arrived like a burst of July sunshine in the January frost of this year’s Sundance, is as palpable as grease paint and every bit as sweet as bug juice."
— Oliver Jones, Observer
