About South Pacific, the Musical

Winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical, Best Libretto and Best Score! Set in an island paradise during World War II, two parallel love stories are threatened by the dangers of prejudice and war.

Nellie, a spunky nurse from Arkansas, falls in love with a mature French planter, Emile. When she learns that the mother of his children was an island native, she is unable to turn her back on the prejudices with which she was raised and refuses Emile’s proposal of marriage.

Meanwhile, the courageous Lt. Joe Cable denies himself the fulfillment of a future with an innocent Tonkinese girl with whom he’s fallen in love, based on the same fears that haunt Nellie. When Emile is recruited to accompany Joe on a dangerous mission that may claim both their lives, Nellie must choose between her prejudices or unconditional love and acceptance. Musical numbers include I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa’ My Hair, There Ain’t Nothing Like a Dame and Some Enchanted Evening.

Rocky Horror Show, October 2016


The Rocky Horror Show

Rocky Horror Show October 12th – October 31st, 2016

The Rocky Horror Show is a musical with music, lyrics, and book by Richard O’Brien. A funny and campy salute to the sci-fi and horror B movies of the late 1940s through to the early 1970s. The musical tells the story of a newly engaged couple Janet and Brad, who are caught in a storm and find “refuge” in the mansion of Dr. Frank-N-Furter, an utterly mad transvestite scientist who on that very night is unveiling his new creation, a sort of Frankenstein-style monster in the form of an artificially made, fully grown, physically perfect muscle man named Rocky Horror, complete “with blond hair and a tan”.

Chess, The Musical at the Camelot Theatre


Chess, the Musical

August 31 – October 2, 2016

Music by Benny Andersson & Bjorn Ulvaeus
Lyrics by Tim Rice, and Book by Richard Nelson

Chess, The Musical Camelot theater

Chess, The Musical

About Chess, The Musical

The collaborators on Chess are giants of rock music and rock musicals (such as, Mama Mia!) and they have created a complex rock opera that played to full Broadway houses and standing ovations.

Here the ancient game becomes a metaphor for romantic rivalries, competitive gamesmanship, super power politics and international intrigues. The pawns in this drama form a love triangle: the earnest Russian champion, the loutish American chess star and a Hungarian American female assistant who arrives at the international chess match in Bangkok with the American but falls for the Russian.

From Bangkok to Budapest the players, lovers, politicians and spies manipulate and are manipulated to the pulse of a monumental rock score that includes One Night in Bangkok, Someone Else’s Story, Pity the Child and Heaven Help My Heart.

La Cage Aux Folles, at the Camelot Theatre


La Cage Aux Folles

June 22 – July 31, 2016 at the Camelot Theatre

La Cage aux Folles: Music & Lyrics by Jerry Herman and Book by Harvey Fierstein

Poster Playbill for La Cage Aux Folles playing at the Camelot theater

 

About La Cage aux Folles

This Tony Award Winning musical remains one of Broadway’s all time biggest hits!

After twenty years of un-wedded bliss, Georges and Albin, two men partnered for better-or-worse, get a bit of both when Georges’ son (fathered during a one-night fling) announces his impending marriage to the daughter of a bigoted, narcissistic politician.

Further complicating the situation is the ‘family business’: Albin and Georges run a drag nightclub in St. Tropez, where Albin is the “star” performer ‘Zaza’. Georges reluctantly agrees to masquerade as “normal” when he meets the family of the bride-to-be. But Albin has other plans, with hilarious results.

Musical numbers include With You on My Arm, I Am What I Am and The Best of Times is Now.
