City Theatre is joining with Grammy-Nominated singer/songwriter Lisa Loeb to mount a summer-long engagement of last yearâ€™s hit rock musical Camp Kappawanna.
The rollicking musical celebrates timeless summer camp experiences with hip, cool music and lyrics by GrammyÂ® Award-nominated singer/songwriter Lisa Loeb along with veteran songwriters Michelle Lewis and Dan Petty and a script by rising national playwright and South Florida native Marco Ramirez. With this seasonâ€™s must-see musical, Camp Kappawanna, City Theatre set out to create a new classic for all ages: a fresh, original take on leaving home for the first time that, from start to finish, makes everyone in the audience feel as if they, too, are joining in the fun of summer camp!
Camp Kappawanna tells the story of Jenny Jenkins, awkward and adorable and 12, a kid who hasnâ€™t really found herself just yet. Sheâ€™s going away for the summer â€“ her very first time leaving home. From the start, Camp Kappawanna makes audiences of all generations feel as if they, too, are joining in the fun of summer camp. Camp Kappawanna marks GrammyÂ® Award-nominated multi-platinum selling singer/songwriter Lisa Loebâ€™s first musical production. Loeb created Camp Kappawannaâ€™s music and lyrics along with collaborators Dan Petty and Michelle Lewis in celebration of her days at camp, where she first learned to play the guitar.
In a unique collaboration, the set will be designed by multiple Carbonell Award winning designer Sean McClelland in conjunction with illustrations created by the Candela Creative Group. The husband and wife design team of Rafols Morales and Candela Demarco created Camp Kappawannaâ€™s unique cartoon design, and are utilizing the same bold, bright cartoon-like aesthetic in collaborating with scenic designer Sean McClelland. Their goal is to create a completely unique environment and experience for attendees. As an artist, designer and producer, Candela Demarco brings her experience creating games, contests and websites for kids for companies such as the Discovery Channel to City Theatreâ€™s family musical. She says, â€œthough Iâ€™ve never worked on musical theatre before, as a parent and an artist I saw an opportunity to bring my years of illustration and design experience to help create a cool, creative environment that will completely engage kids.â€
Together, the South Florida creative team will join with Grammy-Nominated singer/songwriter Lisa Loeb, playwright Marco Ramirez and co-composers and lyricists Michelle Lewis and Dan Petty to put Camp Kappawanna on the cultural map throughout South Florida.
