Ben Platt and Noah Galvin, Engaged Pair, Talk About Their 'Theater Camp' Film in Instinct Magazine
Ben Platt and Noah Galvin star in comedy film 'Theater Camp.'
Ben Platt and Noah Galvin, who are soon-to-be husbands, are teaming up for a new comedy film called 'Theater Camp.' During their appearance on the Just for Variety podcast, they discussed their excitement about the project. The movie is actually based on a short film from 2020 that shares the same title. Platt, Galvin, Molly Gordon, and Nick Lieberman worked together to write the script for the film.
The plot of 'Theater Camp' revolves around the eccentric staff of a run-down theater camp in upstate New York. They must join forces with the founder's son, who has a more laid-back personality, to save the camp from closure. It promises to be an entertaining and humorous story.
Platt expressed his enthusiasm for the project, describing it as their wildest dreams coming true. He mentioned that the film 'Waiting for Guffman' was a major inspiration for them. They wanted to create a film that would bring together their talented and funny friends and provide them with a platform to showcase their skills. They aimed to establish a little community of their own, where they could have creative control and autonomy.
Galvin added that they were the perfect team for the job because they all had a background in youth theater and a deep love for it. They wanted to pay homage to it while also poking fun at its quirks and idiosyncrasies. Their personal connection to the world of youth theater made them the ideal candidates to bring this story to life.
Platt even referred to 'Theater Camp' as their first child together, highlighting the emotional investment they have in the project. The couple got engaged in November 2022, and their love for each other shines through in their work as co-stars.
Excitingly, 'Theater Camp' is set to be released in theaters on July 14. If you're curious about what to expect, you can check out the trailer for the film. It promises to be a delightful and entertaining experience, showcasing the talent and chemistry of Platt and Galvin on the big screen.
