Project Description

Camp

Lynn wrote two songs with Michael Gore for Todd Graff’s comedy feature film about kids at a summer theater camp. Sondheim makes a cameo, and see Anna Kendrick in her first movie, singing “The Ladies Who Lunch!”

“Funny, touching and vital! The climactic number, “Here’s Where I Stand,” is a burst of defiance and joy!”

-Rolling Stone

“Tiffany Taylor sings a heart-rending showstopper called ‘Here’s Where I Stand,’ in which the adolescent desire to simply be seen for oneself takes on unexpected majesty.”

Boston Globe

“The excellent score not only includes top-notch selections from numerous vintage musicals, but excellent new ballads by Michael Gore and Lynn Ahrens…Jenna (Tifffany Taylor).. belts out the biggest showstopper in a movie crammed with them.”

Camp (2003) Comedy, Musical, Drama | 114min | 29 August 2003 (USA) 6.2
Director: Todd GraffWriter: Todd GraffStars: Don Dixon, Daniel Letterle, Joanna ChilcoatSummary: Misfits in their lives back home, a group of young people live it up at musical-theater camp. While the sports counselor is completely ignored, the kids' spend all their time in rehearsal for a grueling schedule that involves a new show every two weeks. Several personal stories come to the fore. Is talented golden-boy Vlad honest in his feelings about Ellen? Can cross-dressing Michael have a relationship with his parents? Will one-hit-wonder musical playwrite and now camp counselor Bert Hanley remain mired in drink and cynicism? Fireworks are in store when Fritzi, who slavishly serves glamour girl Jill, is finally told to get a life, and the parents of Jenna, whose jaw has been wired shut in a compromise to avoid being sent to "fat camp", learn a valuable lesson at the summer's big end-of-season benefit.
