The Sun-Sentinel talks with recording artist and rock star Lisa Loeb, who wrote the songs for Camp Kappawanna, a musical for tweens currently playing at The Broward Center for the Performing Arts. City Theater commissioned the the musical, which has a book written by local playwright Marco Ramirez, as part of their Summer Shorts Festival.
The show -- with a book by Marco Ramirez, about the follies of a 12-year-old girl's first time at sleepaway camp -- has been improved since it debuted at Miami's Arsht Center last year, Loeb said. "It's tighter, with more songs to keep it moving along," she said. "The kids really love it."City Theatre's production of Camp Kappawanna plays the Broward Center July 1-3, 2011.
