PLUS: An orchestral preview of a new Musical by Jamie Bradley and Garry Williams
The Nazis hated them because they were gay… but that’s what saved them
KAMP Songspiel: An Orchestral Preview will highlight some of the original songs of this new musical and introduce the audience to the characters and their lives in the “Pink Barrack” as they plan and rehearse their own cabaret.
The Songspiel will feature a number of queer performers from the Halifax theatre community. The KAMP Cabaret Band will include musicians from the Halifax Music Co-Op, under the Musical Direction of John Bogardus.
A ticket to KAMP Songspiel gives you admission to two separate stage readings of the play presented during the STAGES Theatre Festival on May 16th and 27th!
So that’s THREE performances for one ticket.
The Nazis hated them because they were gay… but that’s what saved them.
KAMP is a two-act musical that tells the story of a group of homosexual men, interred in a Nazi concentration camp, who use their artistic talents to secretly produce their own musical revue; a project that would give them hope to survive, hold on to their identities, and maintain their humanity. KAMP is based on historical truth.
This reading is presented in a unique way.
How the ‘multiple readings’ thing works:
After you have enjoyed, experienced and lived the music at the songspiel…
The play receives a first reading in week one of the STAGES Theatre Festival, then a second reading in week two after work has been done.
‘KAMP’ (by Jamie Bradley & Garry Williams ) will be the second play script to receive this treatment. We initiated this process in 2016 and it proved successful and very useful to the writer.
Session 1 will feature a staged-reading of this new work in-development followed by a moderated feedback session with the audience. Over the course of ten days, the playwrights will rework the piece (heeding OR ignoring the audience’s comments!) for a reading to take place the following week.
