A Letter From AVP Director, Terry Sands
This summer Annisquam will be transformed in both time and place, back to England and the middle ages, to a time of knights in shining armor and ladies in waiting/damsels in distress, dungeons and dragons, to the glorious time of the mythical King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, to one of the most popular musicals of all times, CAMELOT.
Lerner and Loewe’s Camelot opened on Broadway in 1960 with a star cast of Richard Burton as Arthur, Julie Andrews as Guenevere, and Robert Goulet as Lancelot. This was the Kennedy era in Washington, D.C., and the musical was John Kennedy’s favorite. And no wonder – John Kennedy was classmates at Harvard with T.H. White, author of The Once and Future King, which tells the legend of King Arthur, and Alan Jay Lerner, author of the book and lyrics forCamelot. Since Kennedy’s assassination in 1963, the show has been wed to the Kennedy era. It has twice been revived on Broadway, and is particularly relevant now, as we just commemorated the 50th anniversary of the assassination of JFK.
The lasting appeal of the Arthur legend is apparent in the plethora of current TV shows and movies that mirror this era – e.g. Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones. The show boasts some of the greatest songs of all musical theater – “Camelot,” “The Lusty Month of May,” “How to Handle a Woman,” and “If Ever I Would Leave You” (arguably the most beautiful love song in musical theater).
We are looking for creative people to help with challenging medieval costumes and sets (not only the castle but also an enchanted forest). This is a show for all ages, and we want your ideas. Rehearsals will start the middle of June, and the show runs Tuesday, August 4, through Sunday, August 9. The AVP will produce a musical float in the Gloucester Horribles Parade on July 3.
