I was fortunate enough to see this on its opening night last month at a sold-out screening in Hollywood with the co-director, Nick Liberman, in attendance for a Q&A afterwards. It was a very special experience and the reactions seemed more as if it was a live theatre opening night than a movie. The audience went absolutely crazy for this film.

I am very disappointed -- though not particularly surprised given their recent patterns with Searchlight films -- that Disney appears to be forgoing a physical media release on this title. I guess you have to be an awards magnet like The Banshees of Inisherin in order to get a disc release from Searchlight these days.

Still, I would not hesitate to recommend Theater Camp and will add it to my digital library.
