You may remember 2015’s “Once I was a Beehive”, a film that told the charming and quirky experience of a young woman attending a Latter-day Saint Girl’s Camp and learning some important lessons along the way. Now, the story continues with the upcoming sequel, “Once I Was Engaged”.

“Fans have been screaming for a sequel ever since we released the first film,” said writer/director Maclain Nelson. “And we are beyond excited for everyone to get back to the movie theatre and experience the next chapter in the lives of their favorite campers.” 

Those favorite campers returning in this film include Bree (Clare Niederpruem), Holly (Hailey Smith), Lane (Paris Warner), and of course bubbly camp leader, Carrie Carrington (Lisa Valentine Clark). This film also brings in some new faces, notably Curt Carrington; Carrie’s husband and Bree’s father, played by High School Musical’s Bart Johnson; and love interest Thys Chesterfield, played by Studio C’s Tanner Gillman. 

“Once I Was Engaged” comes to Utah theaters on Friday, July 21, before opening in Arizona, Idaho, and Nevada on August 6 and nationally on August 13. To learn more about the film, or to find where it may be playing near you, click here to see the film’s official website.
