OK, so maybe Disney’s “Camp Rock”—based on the Jonas Brothers-starring Disney Channel flick—can’t hold a musical candle to “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum,” the previous production by Bobdirex at the Athenaeum. Heck, maybe “Camp Rock” isn’t even in the league of Disney’s “High School Musical.” But since Starlite Musicals packed up many, many years ago, Indy has been hurting for summer musical fun.
While community theaters Footlite Musicals and Indianapolis Civic Theatre both offer high school and college talent opportunities to shine, Bobdirex gives some serious talent a chance to work professionally. The cast for “Camp Rock,” by the way, includes Beef & Boards regular Jessica Murphy and IU Theatre leading lady Brook Wood. Details here.
