City Theatre cooks up a musical

Loeb PhotoAs City Theatre gears up for its 15th anniversary Summer Shorts festival in Miami in June, the company is focusing on something not-so-short for July.

Working from an idea by City producing artistic director Stephanie Norman, Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Lisa Loeb and playwright Marco Ramirez are collaborating on the new musical Camp Kappawanna.  The show tells the story of 12-year-old Jennifer Jenkins, who is going away to summer camp, thus leaving home for the first time.

The family-oriented show is to debut July 1-3 at Nova Southeastern University (exact details to come), but you can get a sneak peek this Sunday at a family fun day sponsored by Temple Dor Dorim, 2360 Glades Circle in Weston.  Pizza (at $2 a slice) and an art contest happen at 11 a.m., with the free preview at noon. The event is open to the public.
