Fans who miss seeing Victoria Rowell as Dru on The Young & The Restless can check out the actress in the new movie Summer Camp, which premiered in theaters on May 31! 

The comedy, from writer/director Castille Landon, centers around three childhood friends played by Diane Keaton, Alfre Woodard, and Kathy Bates, who attend a summer camp reunion where they are finally able to reconnect and also discover something new. Rowell plays Evelyn, one of the members of the “Pretty Committee,” stuck-up rivals to the trio. The other two are played by Beverly D’Angelo and Maria Howell. Rounding out the all-star cast are Dennis Haysbert, Eugene Levy, and Josh Peck.

“It was an incredible experience,” Rowell told Daytime Confidential. “For me, it was a dream come true. I always wanted to work with Diane Keaton. We don’t have, you know, exorbitant amounts of screen time, but just to be offered this role was an honor. I was very, very excited about working with Alfre again. It’s wonderful how the industry interconnects you and and cause reunions with friends, colleagues you haven’t seen in a long time.”

One scene found the two competing groups of friends both doing some white water rafting which required some serious training. “It was very for real!” Rowell revealed. “I mean, we had drops and rapids! We did our own stunts! I’d never been river rafting in my life. I like to have my feet firmly on the ground. I’m up for adventure to an extent. So, it was a great experience. I’m glad I’ve had it!”

The Y&R alum hopes that her fans head to the theater and check out Summer Camp for some good laughs and heartwarming moments. “This movie also speaks to longevity, staying power, and friendship, even though you don’t want to hear what your friends have to say,” Rowell declared. “Whether it’s in a tent or in a camping cabin! It really is a movie that underscores the power of friendship, old friends, and how important it is to invest in them.”
