A great American Musical Theatre classic, magically returns to the Main Stage!

Come along to the idyllic kingdom of Camelot. Revel in the rich, deeply romantic legend of King Arthur and his beloved Queen, Guenevere. Celebrate the dashing Sir Lancelot, the gallant Knights of the Round Table, the mystical wizard Merlin and the Lady of the Lake from the mists of Avalon.

Beyond romance, noble quests and magic spells lie twisted plots, inner demons and betrayal – all threatening to snuff out Arthur’s dreams to build the greatest kingdom ever known – one where true justice and compassion reign supreme. The ideals of Camelot are ones we long for in our own day, making Camelot a hopeful legend for all time.

Written by Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe (My Fair LadyBrigadoon), Camelot is a multi-Tony Award-winner, including one for Best Musical Score. Camelot is based on the King Arthur legends found in T.H. White’s novel The Once and Future King.

Rediscover the romance and grandeur of Camelot - at Chanhassen Dinner Theatres.

Laughing Wild

by Christopher Durang

directed by Andrew Troth

January 27-February 5, 2017

“It’s just too difficult to be alive, isn’t it, and to try to function?”

"Is feeling anxious just part of the human condition? Or do I feel more anxious than one should normally due to some psychological maladjustment or something?"

"Why am I dreaming about the Infant of Prague? I don't even know what that is."

We are all making it up as we go. We are doing what we can: Laughing wild amid severest woe.

"Grand satire... Savagely, consistently on target..." -LA Times

"Durang touches hauntingly and hilariously on the agonies of modern existence, dementia, supermarkets, the ozone layer, and God’s alleged interest in the Tony Awards." -Linda Winer, Newsday

DEAD MAN’S CELL PHONE by SARAH RUHL        

An incessantly ringing cell phone in a quiet café. A stranger at the next table who has had enough. And a dead man-with a lot of loose ends.

Dead Man’s Cell Phone, is an odyssey of a woman forced to confront her own assumptions about morality, redemption, and the need to connect in a technologically obsessed world.

When Heather Chandler, the Almighty, kicks her out of the group, Veronica decides to bite the bullet and kiss Heather’s aerobicized ass… but J.D. has another plan for that bullet.

A great American Musical Theatre classic, magically returns to the Main Stage!

Come along to the idyllic kingdom of Camelot. Revel in the rich, deeply romantic legend of King Arthur and his beloved Queen, Guenevere. Celebrate the dashing Sir Lancelot, the gallant Knights of the Round Table, the mystical wizard Merlin and the Lady of the Lake from the mists of Avalon.

Beyond romance, noble quests and magic spells lie twisted plots, inner demons and betrayal – all threatening to snuff out Arthur’s dreams to build the greatest kingdom ever known – one where true justice and compassion reign supreme. The ideals of Camelot are ones we long for in our own day, making Camelot a hopeful legend for all time.

Written by Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe (My Fair LadyBrigadoon), Camelot is a multi-Tony Award-winner, including one for Best Musical Score. Camelot is based on the King Arthur legends found in T.H. White’s novel The Once and Future King.

Rediscover the romance and grandeur of Camelot - at Chanhassen Dinner Theatres.
