Tuxedos and floor-length gowns are on stage with leaves and mud and lots of hiking boots.

In the orange shirts are the sports camp members. The band camp is in yellow with tall, marching band hats and instruments in hand. And the Bonnie Bell Scouts are in blue selling their cookies to help others.

It's a big night for Camp Awannahikealotta, set in wooded mountains in the 1940s. The cast at Stained Glass Theatre of Mid-Missouri hopes to stir old memories and create some present-day fun with the show "Family Camp."

With no fourth wall, the stage allows for actors to mingle with the audience. A melodrama, bird calls, dirty socks, yummy cookies and mail delivery even may land some ticket-holders on stage.
