Graff based the exuberant film Camp upon his experiences at Stage Door.

"Thirty years ago when my parents looked to the future they never could have imagined all the lives Stagedoor would touch," said Cindy Samuelson, the daughter of founders Carl and Elsie Samuelson. "My parents adored children, loved theater and understood the creative spirit. Stagedoor has always been a family and we hope this anniversary will be a chance for alumni to reconnect and celebrate."

The camp is also putting together a live alumni cabaret performance featuring some of Stagedoor's best moments. It is tentatively scheduled to include performances from some famous faces. Nationally-recognized theater director Michael Larsen is handling the alumni performances, including appearances by Josh Charles, Yancy Arias, Cryer, Graff, Federer, Jonathan Marc Sherman, with more alumni also signing on as well.
