Everyone can surely remember the old days of summer camp: the mosquito bites, the cheesy campfire sing-a-longs, the new friends and the heated competitions. IndyFringe is set to host its own session of camp reminiscences in honor of summer during its monthly program, Jabberwocky.
The open-mike night will feature camp memories from former counselors like Elizabeth Garber of Best Chocolate in Town, Bernadette Kish, a captain for American Airlines and Arthur Spriggs, the executive director of the Shelby County United Way, among others. The performers will dish on their favorite — and least favorite — summer camp experiences. Attendees are invited to share their own funny or embarrassing stories or camp songs as long as they are 3-5 minutes in length.
This apt summer theme will surely bring out many current and former campers, says Ellen Munds, who runs the Jabberwocky program. “We try to come up with themes that people would enjoy sharing their stories about,” she explained.
The event will be held Tuesday, July 13 at 6 p.m. at the IndyFringe Theatre Building, 719 East St. Clair St. Doors open at 5:30. Tickets are $10 at the door. Munds says there will be plenty of camp favorites, like grilled hot dogs and smores for feasting.
