Original Broadway Version (1952)
Unable to stop her crying spells, Teddy Stern is sent by her doctor to an adult summer camp in the Catskills, Camp Karefree – “where friendships are formed to last a whole lifetime through.” She hopes to relax enough to clear her head for her upcoming wedding, but ends up becoming one of the most sought-after female prizes for the oversexed wait staff of eager college men – among them the aggressive, womanizing Pinky Harris and the charming law student Chick Miller, who eventually makes her realize she doesn't want to be married after all.
