Storyline

Stagedoor is a documentary about the Stagedoor Manor summer camp, a theatrical program in the Catskills where all kinds of kids go to participate in productions. The documentary focused on five kids, but didn't delve too deeply or focus too much on just these five kids. The movie spent a lot of time looking at the overall camp culture. Written by Anonymous

Kids at a performance camp
22 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Stagedoor" is a documentary about Stagedoor Manor, a camp in the Catskills for young people who love to perform or want to make show business a career.

These kids are all ages, from middle school to teens; many of them feel like misfits in their schools, lots of them have ADD, about 70% (according to one of the administrators) of the boys are gay. The documentary focuses on five kids and takes us through auditions, acting class, dress rehearsal, and performance -- at the end of the camp, there are 12 productions, plus the 40 most talented go to two hotels and do a cabaret show.

It was certainly interesting, but too much was crammed into 1 hour and 19 minutes. While the documentary focused on five kids, it was pretty scattered in parts, and frankly, if they hadn't told us they were focusing on these people, I wouldn't have known it.

Also interesting was some insight into the home lives -- the mother who didn't want her boy in Newark during the hot summer, the parents who were pretty sure their daughter didn't have any talent but let her go because she loved it, the young girl with the autistic brother, all fascinating glimpses into what brings a child into concentrating on heightened imagination.

I would have loved to have seen more of the actual performing or auditions. There was a lot of footage of kids standing around talking and hugging. And some of it was just high school stuff - the cabaret clique, the forbidden kissing game, a stern lecture from one of the administrators.

It's always nice to see young people and their great energy and ambitions before the outside world gets hold of them. And it's great to know there's a place for them to exercise their talent.
