ALL MY SONS

All My Sons Written by Arthur Miller Directed by Mark Schneider October 25 - November 12, 2017 Tickets: $18 - $34

[caption id="attachment_5586" align="aligncenter" width="352"]All My Sons All My Sons[/caption] Winner of the New York Drama Critics' Circle Award for Best New Play and the Tony for Best Author, the play introduces themes that would preoccupy Miller throughout his career: the relationships between fathers and sons and the conflict between business and personal ethics. Joe Keller and Steve Deever, partners in a machine shop during World War II, turned out defective airplane parts, causing the deaths of many men. Deever was sent to prison while Keller escaped punishment and went back to business, making himself very wealthy in the ensuing years. A love affair between Keller's son, Chris, and Ann Deever, Steve's daughter; the bitterness of George Deever, who returns from the war to find his father in prison and his father's partner free; and the reaction of Chris Keller to his father's guilt escalate toward a climax of electrifying intensity. Camelot Theatre Company is located in Talent, Oregon in the beautiful Rogue Valley, just a few miles north of Ashland. We perform in the brand new state-of-the-art James M. Collier Theatre. Here is our Mission Statement:
To be of service to the Rogue Valley, Oregon, by producing high-quality affordable plays, musicals and musical events while providing a supportive environment for professional and amateur theatre artists and technicians and inspiring and training adults, teens and children in the theatre arts.

Ashland Public Art

A collection of outdoor art pieces is scattered through the town. Most of the Ashland public art is viewable within a short period of time on foot. The mediums are varied mosaic, stone and bronze sculpture, murals, etc. To assist a visitor in finding all the public art, the City produced a map/brochure. The print version is available at the Ashland Chamber of Commerce, the Information kiosk, and I have some in the inn. There is also an interactive online map [click here for the Ashland Public Art Collection].

The Fantasticks

The Fantasticks Written by Tom Jones Music & Lyrics by Harvey Schmidt & Tom Jones Directed by Brianna Gowland September 6 - 24, 2017, Tickets: $18 - $36

[caption id="attachment_5580" align="aligncenter" width="352"]Fantasticks The Fantasticks[/caption] A musical loosely based on the play The Romancers by Edmond Rostand, the show's original off-Broadway production ran a total of 42 years, making it the world's longest-running musical. It's a captivating and simple romantic comedy about a boy, a girl, two fathers and a wall. The audience uses its imagination to follow El Gallo as he creates a world of moonlight and magic, and then pain and disillusionment, until the boy and girl find their way back to one other. Matt and Luisa fall in love when their fathers build a wall and pretend to feud. But once the parents put an end to the feud and allow the children to be together, Luisa and Matt decide to go their own ways to seek out their fortunes. In the end, after learning many valuable lessons, they come together to start a newer, more mature love. The score, which includes "Try To Remember", "They Were You" and "Soon It's Gonna Rain", is as timeless as the story itself. Camelot Theatre Company is located in Talent, Oregon in the beautiful Rogue Valley, just a few miles north of Ashland. We perform in the brand new state-of-the-art James M. Collier Theatre.

Bella Donna Premise

According to popular opinion, Lucrezia Borgia was the most vicious woman of the Italian Renaissance. The tales about her are lurid, salacious, and make for great juicy gossip. But what if none of those tales is true?  This dark comedy offers a different vision Cast Eileen DeSandre (sometimes OSF actor and more importantly my Scrabble playing friend!), Amy Fox, Russell Lloyd, Cynthia Rogan, Tavis Williams, and Mig Windows Details Location: Ashland Library Date: August 28, 2017 Time: 6:30 As always, admission and food are free.
