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.

This sidesplitting, uplifting peek into the lives of the rural Norwegian Lutherans who audiences first fell in love with in 2005 is the sixth chapter of the story begun in the original Church Basement Ladies. In Rise Up O Men, series familiars Mrs. Mavis Gilmerson, Mrs. Vivian Snustad, and Mrs. Karin Engleson are busy with preparations for the church’s 1964 Centennial Celebration, and the menfolk of the parish have their own problems to solve. Karin’s husband Elroy, farmer Carl and Great War vet Arlo are joined in brotherhood by series staple Pastor E.L. Gunderson. Their camaraderie unites them as they deal with furnace salesmen, looming retirement, rival Protestant denominations, the Pastor’s bad jokes, and Arlene’s even-worse cooking.

Winner of the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for Drama

Florida, 1929: a Cuban-American family eagerly awaits the arrival of a new lector to read aloud to their cigar factory workers. When he introduces them to the classic Anna Karenina, a hot and humid Tampa factory starts to mirror the scandalous Russian aristocracy of Tolstoy’s classic. Love, revenge, passion, and tragedy abound in this award-winning drama.

"This horticultural horror will have you screaming with laughter..." – New York Post

In this zany musical comedy, flower shop assistant Seymour Krelborn stumbles across a new breed of plant he names "Audrey II" after his coworker crush. This foul-mouthed, R&B-singing, carnivorous plant promises the down-and-out Seymour fame and fortune if he keeps feeding Audrey II a most unusual diet. Business booms for the shop as the plant grows, but its appetite soon becomes insatiable. Seymour must risk his job, love, and life to keep it alive. With its catchy doo-wop score, Little Shop of Horrors has become one of the world's most popular musicals.

Written by Theresa Rebeck
Directed by Mel Day

"Rebeck cares enough about Haley to give her confidence, competence, homor and introspection, all while battling insecurity, incompetence, black moods, impulsivity and a noir-ish plot twist." –The Philadelphia Inquirer

In this comedic one-woman show we become the confidantes of Haley, a successful restaurateur and single mom who is just getting back into the dating world. Haley tells us of her ill-fated but highly entertaining encounters while sifting through her wardrobe and her enormous collection of shoes. Just when everything seems to go horribly wrong, connections come forward to help in the most unexpected ways.
