“Camelot is a touch of escapism in the midst of a crazy world” 4*s Musical Theatre Review

“It’s a miracle that in a matter of weeks director Paul Hart has marshalled and rehearsed a company of 10 and ensured they can take their place in a socially distanced way.” The Daily Telegraph

"We owe a huge debt of gratitude to the Watermill team for... staging this outdoor concert version of Lerner and Loewe’s Camelot.” 4*s Musical Theatre Review

Mon 17 Aug 2020 - Sat 05 Sep 2020

We are pleased to announce that after high demand we will be extending the run of The Hound of the Baskervilles until Sunday 6 September and Camelot until Saturday 5 September. Tickets go on sale Thursday 6 August at 10am. 

Lose yourself in a world of knights and chivalry, royalty and romance in a spirit-lifting concert performance of Lerner and Loewe’s musical based on the legend of King Arthur, Guenevere and Lancelot.

From the writers of My Fair Lady, enjoy classic songs including ‘If Ever I Would Leave You’, ‘How To Handle A Woman’, ‘The Lusty Month of May’ and ‘Camelot’.

The show takes place outside in The Watermill Theatre gardens. Seats will be uncovered, and performances will go ahead whatever the weather, so bring a sun hat, warm clothes and waterproofs to enjoy the experience of watching this very special concert performance in the garden.
