Student Performances Return to McMahon Memorial Auditorium with “Toy Camp”

 

LAWTON, OKLAHOMA – Lawton Community Theatre presents a student performance of “Toy Camp” at McMahon Memorial Auditorium on February 24, 2022.

“Toy Camp,” with book, music and lyrics by Paul Collette and Gary Fritzen, brings audiences into the world of make-believe, a place where toys learn to be good toys at Toy Camp. Ted E. Bear, Princess Ann, Glow Toy and others have come to Toy Camp in hopes of graduating and earning their price tags so that they can be sold in toy stores. Not graduating from Toy Camp means certain doom at the Toy Dump. During their week at camp, the toys learn lessons in paying attention as well as practicing, and overcoming, their fears and weaknesses. Each toy learns that confidence in yourself is the key to being loved by others, and that everyone is good at something.

This production is approximately one-hour in length and is suitable for the entire family.

Daytime performances 10:00 a.m. and 12:15 p.m.
