CAMELOT

Academy Playhouse, Orleans

Directed by Peter Earle
Musical Direction by Chris Morris

Camelot_13x19-1Lerner and Loewe’s majestic Camelot brings the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table to life. Camelot tells the story of Arthur, a young squire who becomes King after extracting the sword Excalibur from its legendary rock. The musical follows Arthur from a young, ambitious, idealistic King who dreams of creating a just society to the despairing king bearing witness to his dream’s demise. Arthur’s dream is inspired by his vivacious Queen Guenevere. But just as this utopian vision starts to become reality, everything begins to unravel. When Guenevere falls in love with Arthur’s most celebrated, beloved, and loyal knight, Lancelot, they begin a romance as doomed as it is passionate. Their troubles are compounded when Arthur’s illegitimate son, Mordred, arrives on the scene. In a world of human realities, can Camelot achieve the utopia of which Arthur dreams?  BUY TICKETS

NUNSENSE

Cotuit Center for the Arts

Join us for the Cotuit production of this classic musical comedy!

Nunsense begins when the Little Sisters of Hoboken discover that their cook, Sister Julia, Child of God, has accidentally poisoned 52 of the sisters, and they are in dire need of funds for the burials. The sisters decide that the best way to raise the money is to put on a variety show, so they take over the school auditorium, which is currently set up for the eighth grade production of “Grease.” Here we meet Reverend Mother Regina, a former circus performer; Sister Mary Hubert, the Mistress of Novices; a streetwise nun from Brooklyn named Sister Robert Anne; Sister Mary Leo, a novice who is a wannabe ballerina; and the delightfully wacky Sister Mary Amnesia, the nun who lost her memory when a crucifix fell on her head. Featuring star turns, tap and ballet dancing, an audience quiz, and comic surprises, this show has become an international phenomenon.   BUY TICKETS

THE GHOSTLIGHT PROJECT

Ghostlight LR-8

Creating light to remind the world what art can do to strengthen the human spirit. Inspired by the tradition of leaving a “ghost light” on in a darkened theater, these artists and communities will make a pledge to continued vigilance and increased advocacy for the freedom of artistic expression through the performing arts.

15875699_615013092039631_2453588947893223424_aThe Ghost Light Project aims to unite the community nationwide in solidarity. The project aims to create spaces – both literal and symbolic – that will serve as lights in the coming years, and to activate a network of people across the country working to support vulnerable communities. The event is free and all we ask is to bring a flashlight or some means of light (no lasers please) to shine at the sky.
