The CCM Preparatory Department is proud to present the world premiere adaptation of The Last Dragon of Camelot, a musical adapted for young actors, March 18 – 20. The authors of the musical are Alyn Cardarelli, a graduate of The Second City Training Center and co-founder of Emerald City Theatre, Chicago’s largest theatre dedicated to families and Steve Goers, a versatile musician and performer who is a faculty member of the CCM Musical Theatre department. Cardarelli and Goers have revised the original show specifically for the CCM Prep Department Theatre Arts program by rewriting songs and script appropriate for middle school actors and singers.
An evil dragon, king, knights and one intelligent, strong and courageous woman, are at the center of this Renaissance fantasy. CCM Prep faculty member Dee Anne Bryll is the Director and Rebecca Childs is the Musical Director. Over fifty students ages 8-14 from the CCM Prep Department will be performing.
This project is made possible through a generous grant from ArtsWave. In addition to the productions at Patricia Corbett Theatre at CCM March 18-20, two free outreach performances that will be part of the ArtsWave Sampler Weekend events will be performed: February 26 at 12:40 p.m. at the School for Creative and Performing Arts (part of the Get Smart About Art Event) and Saturday March 26 at 3pm at the Cincinnati Art Museum.
