"Charlie's Closet" comes to EDH

EDMT Announces Screening of Locally Produced Feature Length Film “Charlie’s Closet.”

EL DORADO HILLS, CA - El Dorado Musical Theatre is proud to announce a special screening of the feature length film, “Charlie’s Closet” on Saturday August 21 at 1:00PM at the Jill Solberg Performing Arts Theater at Folsom High School. Charlie's Closet is written and directed by El Dorado Hills native Spencer Reed, and starring EDMT alums Spencer Borup as Charles Cordell, and Matthew Provencal as Tort. The film also features EDMT alums Amy Foulk, Terry Hicks, Devin Holliman, Chris Meissner, and Mariah Muehler with a guest appearance from Phillip Borup.

It follows the story of a young adolescent girl, Zoe Jacobs and her family who have recently moved to a new home. Zoe, lost and confused in her new environment, finds an unexpected friend in Charles Cordell (Borup), an aspiring author who just so happens to be the monster she found in her closet.
