VWCT announces ‘Camp Omigosh’ cast

Van Wert Civic Theatre information

Director Amber Evans has announced the cast for this summer’s second youth theatre production at Van Wert Civic Theatre: “Camp Omigosh” by Wade Bradford.

In this family-friendly show, Connor’s summer is off to a rough start: the camp bus almost crashes, his cabin mates don’t trust him and the girls on the other side of the camp constantly outsmart him. But when he and his friends, Tasha, Parker and Kimberly, investigate the mystery surrounding the “Ghost of Dead Billy,” they begin a hilarious adventure that is worlds away from a typical campfire story.
