Description:

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 'Two Readings' thing works:

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. 

One ticket allows audience members access to both Session 1 and 2.

TICKETS ON SALE SOON... 

A peeper’s prelude to KAMP, a new Musical by Jamie Bradley and Garry Williams, that tells the story of a group of homosexual men in a Nazi concentration camp, who have been sentenced to “extermination by labour”. Defying their captors and transcending their fate, they produce a cabaret replete with political satire, drag, and plenty of “camp”.

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.
