The Charleston Light Opera Guild (CLOG) is one of the theatre powerhouses in the Tri-State area, and the organization has announced three big musicals they’ll be staging in Charleston in the year ahead.
Here’s the lineup:
- Monty Python’s Spamalot is a musical comedy lovingly ripped off from the 1975 film Monty Python and the Holy Grail and spoofs everything there is to love about musical theatre. The original 2005 Broadway production won three Tony Awards including Best Musical and received 14 Tony nominations. The show will be presented at the Charleston Civic Center Little Theatre on May 6, 7, 13, 14, 15, 20 and 21.
- The Wiz is the soulful African American version of the classic Wizard of Oz fairy tale with a modern twist that retells the tale. The show will be presented at the Civic Center Little Theatre on June 16, 17, 18, 23, 24 and 25 during FestivALL Charleston 2016.
- Beauty and the Beast brings to life the classic Disney animated musical about a beautiful girl who becomes the companion of a brutish beast to save her father's life. It will be presented on the Maier Performance Hall stage at the Clay Center on July 29, 30, August 5, 6, and 12 at 7:30 p.m. and on July 31, August 7 and 14 at 2:00 p.m.
