Sunrise Theater Camp: Swamped! The Musical

SumerCamp Logo Color v2Theater camps are returning to the Sunrise Theater this summer with a series of three one-week camps divided by grades, each with a different theme. Camps include singing, acting, and movement lessons under the guidance of an experienced theater director, assistant director, and staff of talented student volunteers.

Children will learn and rehearse on the Sunrise Stage, Monday through Friday, 9am to noon. The camps will finish with two performances on the Sunrise stages Friday afternoon and Saturday morning.

The community is invited to attend camp performances and cheer on these young entertainers.

Registration for each camp is $150. Applications are available at SunriseTheater.com, at the Sunrise Theater office, or by calling 910-692-3611.

CLASSIC - Ghost - Sponsored by Kataphora (Thu. 11 Jul, 2019 7:30 pm)

Sunrise Summer Classic - GHOST (1990)

PG-13 | 2h 7min | Drama, Fantasy, Romance


After his death, banker Sam Wheat stays on earth as a spirit trying to solve his murder and protect his girlfriend. When he learns that his friend and coworker is corrupt and involved with his murder, he reluctantly turns to a psychic for help.

Ghost Movie Trivia: Ghost was the highest grossing film of 1990 and the most rented video of 1991.

Patrick Swayze refused to sign onto the movie until Whoopi Goldberg was cast as Oda Mae Brown.

Bruce Willis turned down the role of Sam because he didn’t think it would work for a main character to be dead for most of the movie – he later went on to play the lead, who is dead for most of the movie, in the box office hit The Sixth Sense.

It took Ghost’s writer and director several months to come up with Sam’s last line of the movie – “It’s amazing, Molly. The love inside, you take it with you.”d
