Sleepaway Camp III: Teenage Wasteland (1989)Edit

Tawny covered the opening of Camp New Horizons in upstate NY for her news station. She took Angela (who she believed to be Maria Nicastro) aside and asked for some drugs. Angela tricked her with some cleaning supplies, which Tawny soon snorted. The chemicals entered her system and killed her.


Tawny represents the news media. She cares more about getting a good story than the people involved. Behind the flashy veneer she has a cocaine problem, which pokes fun at the drug abuse of celebrities.

Behind the ScenesEdit

The script describes her as "a pretty woman in her mid 30's...wears an expensive coordinated outfit."
