Pack your bags for a trip to a Catskills summer camp where the stars of tomorrow go to prepare for their shot at the big time as filmmaker Alexandra Shiva allows viewers a fly-on-the-wall perspective of Stagedoor Manor, the illustrious training ground for such notable Hollywood heavyweights as Robert Downey Jr., Jennifer Jason Leigh, and Natalie Portman. This is the story of five Broadway hopefuls willing to sacrifice their sun-soaked days of carefree fun in hopes of realizing their dreams of striking it big on-stage. Though grueling days of rehearsal and a constant struggle to earn their place in the spotlight would test the patience of even the most patient of stars, these determined teens are willing to do everything it takes to put on a show that would earn a standing ovation from even the most demanding of critics.
