Stagedoor Manor, the Summer Camp that inspired Todd Graff's indie hit "Camp" was the childhood haven for many future industry pros. Last night, proud alumni of the now famous performing arts training ground met at the Reebok Sports club in New York City to swap memories and celebrate the release of the film.


"It's so great to see everyone!" exclaimed CAMPer-turned-pro Alison Cimmet as she scanned the room for familiar faces. For every "Where have you been?" you could overhear another "I didn't know you went to Stagedoor! What year?" as industry piers realized they shared the Stagedoor connection.


Stagedoor Manor is proud of its many alumni, including celebs Marisa Tomei, Natalie Portman, Zach Braff, Helen Slater, Jon Cryer, Josh Charles and Mary Stuart Masterson.
