A soap-opera patchwork of worn backstage cliches.

You'll have trouble keeping your toes from tapping.

Todd Graff, better known as writer, makes a decent (but no more)directing debut with this mildly amusing but unoriginal indie about a bunch of gays and heteros putting on a show.

A poor man's Fame. If you can live with that, it makes for a somewhat entertaining experience.

The kids have energy to burn, and you can't help but marvel at the polish they bring to a variety of numbers from a variety of musicals.

Nell Minow
Common Sense Media

Funny movie about theater camp for teens.

I was rather bored watching it, but some of the cast has got some awesome talent. Letterle, Chilcoat, and Kendrick have amazing voices. But the movie was… More

It was kind of ironic that a movie about learning how to act featured mostly bad acting (although I don't think that's what they intended).
