  Camelot at Chanhassen Dinner Theatres

Camelot

Chanhassen Dinner Theatres
501 W 78th St Chanhassen

During medieval times in the idyllic land of Camelot, Arthur rules as a wise, compassionate king who dreams of building the greatest kingdom the world has ever known, one in which knowledge and wit reign supreme over brute force. Guenevere, Arthur's beloved queen, encourages Arthur to establish the Knights of the Round Table. As the Knights and their chivalry grow in fame, the dashing Lancelot arrives in Camelot and a deep bond unites the three. But all is not well in Camelot where secrets and friction begin to emerge. Merlin warns Arthur of impending plots. Schemes to thwart the throne and ultimate betrayal challenge Arthur's dreams. Can Camelot be saved?

  Camelot Reviews

Star Tribune - Highly Recommended

"...Brindisi's winning production is a reminder that fairy tales can have social value, and not serve merely as escapist fantasies. In times of trouble - which is to say any era in human history - such stories can serve as reminders of sweet dreams."

Twin Cities Pioneer Press - Highly Recommended

"...The Chanhassen Dinner Theatres cast and crew are firing on all engines with the new production of "Camelot," Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe's follow-up to their smash "My Fair Lady." Friday night's opening looked and sounded like a million bucks, which is appropriate given that the original Broadway production earned the nickname "Costalot" when it premiered in 1960."

How Was The Show - Recommended

"...The best thing about the new production of Lerner and Loewe's Camelot (Chanhassen Dinner Theatre, through February 25, 2017) is King Arthur. Keith Rice has everything the role requires and is a delight to watch. He's developed a complex character that is at once capable of boyish charm and mature leadership. Rice boasts a fine baritone voice and an engaging comedic touch. He carries the play from the moment he drops out of a tree in the first act to the end when he knights "Tom of Warwick" (Jay Soulen/Carter Bannwarth) to keep the utopian dream of "Right Makes Might" alive."

Talkin Broadway - Somewhat Recommended

"...As stellar as all three actors are, however, they are helpless to save a play that is badly outdated. I'm accustomed to cutting some slack to musicals from the Golden Age of Broadway, but there are moments in this show that are go well beyond cringe-worthy. Take, for example, the supposedly humorous exchange that occurs in the aforementioned opening scene when Arthur falls down from the tree where had had been watching Guenevere."

Twin Cities Arts Reader - Recommended

"...First the original, then the dark and edgy, now the whimsical. The Camelot that opened last night at Chanhassen Dinner Theatres is several steps removed from the original version that opened on Broadway in 1960, winning 4 Tony Awards and running for a then-stellar 873 performances. It is not at all the sort of gritty, Game of Thrones-inspired spin that touched down in St. Paul last year. This vision of the tale of King Arthur embraces self-consciousness, awkwardness, and awkward passion."
