If you're a fan of Glee and Christopher Guest comedies, you're no doubt wondering, "Is Theater Camp streaming yet?!"

The mockumentary-style comedy, which follows the eccentric staff members of an upstate New York theatre camp, was co-directed and co-written by The Bear actress Molly Gordon, who also stars alongside a packed cast that includes Dear Evan Hansen lead Ben Platt, Bottoms' Ayo Edebiri, Booksmart's Noah Galvin and comedy legend Amy Sedaris, among others. 

And according to Gordon, making Theater Camp was a true labor of theatrical love: "We had been trying to make it as a feature for six years, so by the time it came together, we honestly couldn’t believe it," she told Harper's Bazaar. "We were given 19 days to shoot the whole movie. It was such a mad dash to get everything done. The last 20 minutes are a full musical, there are children, and I’m in it; it’s improv."

"It was a beautiful experience, making it with my closest friends. We all lived in a house near this camp we shot at. It was extremely meta," she added. "Everything went wrong and we had to use that 'the show must go on' mentality—every mistake is an opportunity. It felt like this beautiful, creative oasis that was also the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life."

Sounds like a blast, but can you take in all of the theater-kid goodness from the comfort of your own couch? Here's all of the Theater Camp streaming info you need.
