The KickstArt production of Camelot will be running from 18th May to 3rd June, which doesn’t give much time to enjoy it. How do I know you will enjoy it? Because, as I said on their Fb page before swiping their promotion below, ‘Utterly magnificent. What a superb production of this classic show. Acting, singing, sets, costumes, lighting, sound, and direction are all of the highest levels.’
‘Don’t let it be forgot
In Durban there’s a spot,
For one brief, shining season
That will feature Camelot’!*

We took the 7-and-10 year old grandkids, and although they sat through it behaving themselves I think it was not as enjoyable for them as the pantomimes and similar they have grown to love. It does have delightful music and quite amazing spectacle (for a small theatre production) but it is more an adult story with a great deal of food for thought on the levels of forced marriages as opposed to true romance, and also how fleeting what we create will be — and yet may still have enduring qualities beyond all expectations.
The show this evening enjoyed a rapturous standing ovation.
