Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

The Camelot Conservatory celebrates its 15th year with a limited 6-performance run of the most “Phantasmagorical” musical, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. A new musical filled with the madness, intrigue and exuberance of the 1968 film of the same name. Can the lovable but whacky inventor, Caractacus Potts, along with his two children and the gorgeous Truly Scrumptious outwit the bombastic Baron Bomburst who has decreed that all children be banished from his kingdom? What happens when the children are caught and imprisoned with the other youngsters by the evil Child Catcher? Will it all end happily ever-after? Join the “next generation of theatre professionals” to find out.

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:

The Drowsy Chaperone at the Oregon Cabaret Theatre


Oregon Cabaret Theatre Presents
“The Drowsy Chaperone”

The Drowsy Chaperone

The Drowsy Chaperone

July 6 – September 3, 2017

The narrator “Man in Chair”, a mousy, agoraphobic musical fanatic, seeking to cure his “non-specific sadness”, listens to a recording of the fictional 1928 musical comedy, The Drowsy Chaperone. As he listens to this rare recording, the characters appear in his dingy apartment, which is transformed into an impressive Broadway set with seashell footlights, sparkling furniture, painted backdrops, and glitzy costumes. Man in Chair provides a running commentary throughout the show from the stage, though he is on the audience side of the fourth wall, invisible to the players.

In the opening number, “Fancy Dress”, the premise and characters of the show are introduced: it’s the day of the wedding of oil tycoon Robert Martin and Broadway star Janet Van De Graaff, who plans to give up her career for married life. Those in attendance include aging hostess Mrs. Tottendale; her loyal employee known only as Underling; Robert’s best man, George; Broadway producer Feldzieg, who is hoping to persuade Janet to forgo marriage and continue starring in Feldzieg’s Follies; ditzy flapper Kitty, who hopes to take Janet’s place in the Follies; two gangsters disguised as pastry chefs; self-proclaimed famed Latin lover Aldolpho; Janet’s alcoholic Chaperone, who is supposed to keep her away from Robert until the wedding; and Trix, an aviatrix.

The Drowsy Chaperone is a musical with book by Bob Martin and Don McKellar and music and lyrics by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison. It is a parody of American musical comedy of the 1920s.

SPAMalot
Inspired by the film “Monty Python and the Holy Grail”
Written by Eric Idle
Music & Lyrics by John Du Prez, Eric Idle
Directed by Renee Hewitt
Tickets: $18 – $36

SPAMALOT

SPAMalot

“Lovingly ripped off” from the film Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Camelot is pleased to present SPAMalot as its summer musical. This Tony Award-winner for Best Musical is a comedy featuring the Knights Who Say Ni, killer rabbits, accused witches, and other Python touches. King Arthur is traveling around England recruiting his Knights of the Round Table. When he and his band of misfit knights finally gather in Camelot, they receive a charge from God to find the Holy Grail. The quest brings the King and his Knights to strange places and into the company of strange characters, challenging them to keep their heads on straight or die terribly weird deaths. SPAMalot also adds swipes at Vegas glitz and Broadway conventions to the film’s anarchic spirit.

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:

Ghost, the Musical

This musical is based on the Oscar-winning motion picture of the same name. This show is for everyone who sobbed through the film. After Sam is murdered on the street, he finds himself trapped as a ghost between this world and the next. He tries to communicate with girlfriend Molly through a phony psychic (Oda Mae Brown) in the hope of saving her from his murderer. The notion that we have a parallel existence beyond mortality is stunningly expressed in a show of video projections, artfully created by Camelot’s Video Designer, Brian O’Connor.

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.
