But when Penny unexpectedly wins a scholarship to a prestigious theater camp, she’s suddenly thrust into a world of competition and self-doubt. And as she meets new friends, including Chase, a talented young actor with big-city dreams, she begins to realize that her own dreams may be bigger than she ever imagined.
