Summer Camp! the Musical

[THEATER] Friday, Aug. 10- Sunday, Aug. 19

Some things are better experienced as musicals. Why dabble in heroin when you can watch Rent? Why chase tornados when Wicked is playing? Same goes for Summer Camp!, a kitschy homage to the 1980s Teen Sex Comedy. The musical follows two nerds who vow to lose their virginity at camp, as Russians race to build bombs and Reagan rules the land. Why see the play? Because a pretend Republican administration is better than a real one. 8 p.m., Friday-Sunday; Onyx Theatre, Commercial Center, 732-7225 or www.onyxtheatre.com, $15
